Gov. Darius Ishaku has proposed about N96.5bn as Taraba budget to the state legislature for 2018 fiscal year.
While laying the estimates before the legislators in Jalingo, Ishaku explained that the budget proposal was about 12 per cent lower than the estimate for 2017 when the state budgeted N110.1 billion.
Ishaku, who tagged the proposal as “Budget of Sustainable Growth”, said that the budget would be funded from Internally Generated Revenue of N5.3 billion, Federal Allocation of N31.5 billion and Value Added Tax (VAT) of N9.2 billion.
