A former Deputy Speaker of Adamawa State House of Assembly, Kwamoti La’ori, has decried what he called “the under-performance of the country’s annual budget.”
The House of Reps member representing Numan/Demsa/Lamurde Federal Constituency of Adamawa State on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, stated this while addressing journalists in Yola, following the inauguration of some solar-powered boreholes, a computer centre, a town hall and examination halls in Lafia, Demsa, Ndem, Imburu, Bali and Kpasham, constituencies of Lamurde/Demsa/Numan local government areas.
He said, “This country has never achieved more than 40 percent budget performance. You can quote me anywhere.
“You have budgets enacted year-in and year-out, being repeated and bloated and yet not being achieved. Because of our projections we don’t follow them. We bloat the system and we don’t prioritise.”
