The Elite Network for Sustainable Development (ENETSUD) has said government appropriation and spending associated with budgets in Kwara State is not a product of research. 

ENETSUD Deputy Coordinator (Projects Tracking), Comrade Lanre Osho, disclosed this during the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) worth N26.5m with a Kwara-based Non-governmental Organization, Gobir Organization Foundation (GOF). 

He said the development has led to a situation where the public fund is not sufficiently working for the taxpayers. 

Osho who revealed that N10 million has so far been received from GOF said the deal will enhance its Citizens Enlightenment and Mobilization Program (CEMP) across the 193 wards of the 16 LGAs in the State. 

“Government appropriation and spending through the budgets are not the product of well-researched needs assessment in most cases, leading to a situation where the public fund is not sufficiently working for the taxpayers. 

“Our observations triggered the design of CEMP which has needs assessment of Kwara communities one of its activities”, he said. 

Fatima Bintu Dikko, Ag. Director of Community Services, ENetSuD, said their recently launched anti-corruption app which is currently being used by citizens, will provide the opportunity to take their destiny into their hands.
