Gov. Darius Ishaku proposes N96.5bn Taraba budget to legislature

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.

He said that N41.2 billion of the Taraba proposed budget was for recurrent expenditure, while the balance of about N45.3 billion was for capital expenditure.

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.
