According to THE CABLE, in Onyekpere’s words: “Nigeria is going through an economic and fiscal crisis where its retained revenue simply pays for debt service and the bulk of the resources required for personnel, overhead and capital expenditure is borrowed,” he said.

“The revenues are simply inadequate to fund fundamental expenditure, therefore, every available fund should be spent with the greatest value for money, tied to a high-level national policy framework and aimed at improving livelihoods, growing the economy, reducing poverty and inequality”. jamb results

“It is against this background that the pullout of frivolous, inappropriate, unclear, and wasteful expenditure calls the attention of the executive, legislature, private sector, civil society including the media to these frivolities at a time of grave national crisis.

“According to the 2022 budget call circular, resources are to be allocated based on actual needs, in line with the immediate needs of the country as well as government’s developmental objectives and priorities. Starting from the presidency’s statehouse headquarters, the pullout calls on the leadership to lead by example.

“Spending billions of Naira every year on routine maintenance of statehouse facilities is a huge waste. All statutory transfers are stated as lump-sum provisions without details. No person, government agency, or organisation has the right in a constitutional democracy to spend public funds in a way and manner that is unknown to the ultimate sovereigns, being the taxpayers and citizens.

“There is no law authorising this kind of budgeting. It is unconstitutional, illegal, unethical, inappropriate. The details should be provided to Nigerians.”
