Mangu LG proposes N5bn budget for 2020

Mangu Local Government of Plateau has proposed a budget of N5 billion for its services in the 2020 fiscal year.

The Chairman of the local government, Mr Lawrence Danat, disclosed this on Wednesday while presenting the 2020 Appropriation Bill of over N5 billion to the Legislative Arm of the council for its consideration and approval.

Danat told the Lawmakers at the Legislative Chambers that the budget tagged: “Budget of Hope Phase ll”, was geared toward providing dividends of democracy to citizens of the area within both metropolitan and rural communities.

He explained that the gains recorded in the implementation of the 2019 budget had earned the council lots of accolades and awards from institutions and public spirited organisations.

According to him, “the awards are dedicated to the good people of Mangu local government for giving us the opportunity to serve them in different capacities.

“My administration maintains zero tolerance for corruption and I hope all citizens of Mangu local government will remain patriotic and committed to the yearnings and aspirations to develop the area.

“I urge the legislative arm to ensure the speedy passage of the budget,” the chairman said.

Responding on behalf of the lawmakers, one of them, Mr Emmanuel Daniel, commended the chairman and his management team for putting up a realistic budget for the area.

Daniel said that the chairman gave priority to rural development in the first year of the administration, which he said, put smiles on the faces of the rural dwellers.

He assured the chairman of prompt perusal of the budget for its quick passage. (NAN)
