Now That We Have Seen Governor Ayade’s Last Budget … BY AGBA JALINGO

In Breaking News, Opinion

Yesterday Governor Ayade presented his 2023 budget proposal to the State House of Assembly, and as usual, he gave the N330 Billion proposal, which is his last budget in office, another buzz name: Budget of “Quantum Infinitum.”

For the records, let’s see the budgets from the year 2016 since Governor Ayade took over:

2016, Budget of Deep Vision – N350 Billion.

2017, Budget of Infinite Transposition – N707 Billion.

2018, Budget of Kinetic Crystallization – N1.30 Trillion.

2019, Budget of Quabalistic Densification – N1.43 Trillion.

2020, Budget of Olympotic Meristemasis – N1.10 Trillion.

2021, Budget of Blush and Bliss – N 277 Billion.

2022, Budget of Conjugated Agglutination – N355 Billion.

2023, Budget of Quantum Infinitum – N330 Billion.

That’s a cumulative Total Eight Year Budget of: ( Five Trillion, Eight Hundred And Forty-Nine Billion Naira)

Budgets are proposals not birds in hand. But these proposals are meant to be measured by realistic frameworks and based on concrete projections and not only wishful thinking. Close to Six Trillion Naira has been budgeted in eight years. I am to this date, still mounting pressure on my brother, the governor of our State, Senator Ben Ayade, and waiting for the commencement of functionality and market presence of products from his 38 industries. It will be to the delight of all of us, including yours sincerely.

In 213 days time, we will have a new governor and most of the factories he built are not functioning yet. There is no guarantee that they will function and get their products to the market after his tenure. That model has not worked in our State since 1999. I don’t want to be fed with the periodic optics when the governor visits those places. I just want to see those products hit the market and folks earning genuine income from there and I think that is the desire of most Cross Riverians and trust me, I will be out there drumming it, once that happens.
