N442 million for plates, spoons and curtains! This is what Plateau’s budget looks like

by Kolapo Olapoju

Yesterday, the Plateau State Government sent a supplementary budget of N23.4bn to the state House of Assembly for consideration and approval.

According to the estimates of the proposed budget, N442,289,600.00 was earmarked for the supply and fixing of curtains, blinds, customised cutleries and other items for the new Government House.

The contract is expected to be awarded to a foreign firm.

The supplementary budget also covers the purchase of a Toyota Land Cruiser model vehicle for the Chief Judge of Plateau State, at the cost of N25,625,675.68 and a Toyota Corolla for the Chief Registrar, Plateau State Judiciary, at the cost of N7,545,398.68.

The Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mrs. Olivia Dazem, said that the budget was important in order to complete existing projects before the expiration of the tenure of the present administration.

She said, “In view of the need to meet additional developmental efforts of the present administration in project execution, a supplementary budget in respect of some ministries, agencies and departments have become very necessary.”
