The commissioner said there is an improvement in recurrent to capital ratio from 68:32 in 2023 to 60:40 in 2024.

According to him, “We have 60 per cent of our budget being estimated for recurrent while 40 per cent for infrastructure. Osun State has surpassed the 30 per cent for infrastructure benchmark of the federal government,” he added.

“The 2024 approved estimate does not base on net financing (i.e. Loan). The 2024 approved estimate has taken care of the debt commitment of the previous administration in terms of debt services as well as pension and gratuity,” he said.
