Date: 2016-11-21

The Kwara State House Assembly has urged the State Government to as a matter of priority insert and disburse #500m as bursary to students of State Origin in 2017 budget.

The call was contained in the Resolutions of the State House of Assembly, while considering the report of the Joint House Committees on Public Accounts as well as Finance and Appropriation on the performance of the State Government on the approved 2016 budget.

Reading the resolutions of the House, the Speaker Dr. Ali Ahmad explained that though the Country and Kwara State in particular was faced with macro - economic meltdown and Paucity of fund, the State Government he said should insert N500m in the next year's budget, since it could not be implemented this year, due to economic recession, to alleviate the plights of the Students in tertiary institutions across the Country.

It equally enjoined the State Government to commit more of its resources to Capital Expenditure to savage the State from the verge of infrastructural deficit and enhance the well-being of the People of the State.

The House equally urged the State Government to embark on people- oriented projects, as resolved by the legislature during the 2016 budget debate at the floor of the House to ensure even distribution of Projects that would impact positively on the lives of the People across the State.

The Legislature which noted with delight that the lnternally Generated Revenue of the State had risen , urged the State Government to ensure even distribution of projects across the State.

To attract participation of lnternational Development Partners in infrastructural development of the State, the first tier of government urged the executive to maintain its good record of redeeming its counterpart contributions, noting that the roles of the donor agencies had impacted positively on the lives of the people of the state.

The Parliament which called on the state government to address supervisory issues surrounding Harmony Diagnostic Centre and lnternational Aviation College for effective performance and accountability, said the House discovered that the two agencies were not found to be under any of the government organ for Supervision.

The House reemphasized its commitment towards providing a better platform for good governance of the state and urged the executive arm of government to henceforth discourage MDAs from making unrealistic revenue targets during budget preparation and defence to ensure its effective implementation.

Earlier the Chairman of the House Joint Committee on Public Account as well as Finance and Appropriation Hon Abdul Rasheed Taiwo Abdullahi said the State Governor deserved to be commended for establishing the state lnternal Revenue Service noting that, if the current performance was sustained, the state according to him would be less dependent on the Federation Account and called on the people of the state to continue to support the KWIRS in the performance of its Statutory functions to make the state more viable .
