Taraba Governor presents N96.6b for 2018 Budget

Taraba State Governor, Darius Dickson Ishaku, has presented to an appropriation bill of about N96.6 billion to the State House of Assembly  for 2018.

The budget christened “The Budget of Sustainable Growth,” is 12.32% lower than the 2017 budget which was fixed N110.2 billion.

Governor Dickson also proposed that two ministries (Mining and Power) be created, starting from January next year.

Ishaku explained that the decrease is because of “lower expected receipts from statutory allocation, value added tax, internally generated revenues (IGR) and revenues.”
