Kwara Governor Followed Due Process In Spending Government Money – CPS


Rafiu Ajakaye, the Chief Press Secretary, CPS, to Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State, Nigeria, has insisted that all expenses so far made by the governor followed the due process of the law.

Apparently reacting to the insinuations that the governor had been spending government money without appropriation, the CPS in a statement explained that, “For the purpose of education, the new administration doesn't have a budget of its own yet. 

“The budget being implemented is the same 2019 Appropriation Law which had undergone parliamentary scrutiny/approval. 

“But the difference this Governor is making is that a budget is nothing if not backed with cash for implementation. 

“He is simply backing those budget provisions with prompt release of funds, especially for projects that have direct impact on the people. 

“Such (budgetary) provisions include water, road rehabilitation, and payment of counterpart funds to hasten development in various sectors of the economy like education and health which have received prompt attention under this administration. 

“Not a single kobo has been released in violation of the law.  

“Indeed, every request for approval of funds/the actual approval is backed by codes as captured in the 2019 Appropriation Law  (budget). 

“But, again, the difference the Governor is making is to release this money to serve public good because he believes the people deserve the best.”
