Cross River MDAs Fail 2012 Budget Performance

In Breaking News, Business & Economy, Reports

by crossriverwatch admin

Majority of the Ministries, Departments and Agencies MDAs, in Cross River State have failed the minimum required standard of implementing the budget for the year 201budget 20122.

Only last week, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Budget Monitoring and Evaluation, Dr. Peter Oti rejected some reports of budget officers from various MDAs in the State.

The rejection according to crossriverwatch checks was due to the low budget performance recorded by the MDAs and their attempt to conceal that in the unprofessional manner of the presentation by the budget officers.

Oti explained that some MDAs left their columns and rolls blank and adequate information on income on expenditure was not gotten, thereby making it difficult to determine the budget performance.

He noted that some of the MDAs executed huge projects but that their performance report on income and expenditure figures for the month of December were totally absent. These made their reports too to be rejected.

The Special Adviser who was represented by Mr. John Odey spoke during the 4th quarter budget performance report 2012, and report on Capital Vote Utilization performance meeting held at the auditorium of the College of Health Technology, Calabar.

He observed lapses exhibited by the budget officers in areas of reporting and late submission of reports of their MDAs.

According to the SA, the reports generated from MDA’s aid in decision making and whatever is being sent by any MDAs must be complete.

He express his displeasure about the fact that out of 127 MDAs in the State, only 16 brought their last quarter 2012 and annual performance reports for presentation and this forced the SA to read the riot act to them.
