Enugu government to fund 2024 budget through IGR – Mbah

Governor Peter Mba of Enugu State has said this year's budget of N521.6 billion will be funded by internal revenue, IGR.

He said this at a mass held at the Government House Chapel in Enugu to mark the resumption of work in the new year and to pray for God’s blessings on the nation.

The governor also assured that the budget would be implemented on schedule to address the lingering poverty and hardship caused by the removal of subsidies.

He said governments would be asked to review workers' benefits and purchasing power to ensure they were prepared to do their best.

Prime Minister Mbaha said only about 12% of the 521.6 billion naira budget would be financed through borrowings, and appealed to the people for more support through tax payments and protection of public assets.

“Now that we have this ambitious budget, it is important that we strive to maximize its implementation and that the public continues to support the government.

“We have to make sure we protect government assets. They are our assets,” he added.
