Hear him, “Our remittal platform will be launched on March 15, 2021.”

He said that, the measures are aimed at blocking all leakages in revenue collection for the subsequent financial fiscal years and that, besides the adoption of TSA, the budget process will also be digitalized, including the capture of workers’ salaries and gratuities into the Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System (IPPIS) of Borno state.

The internally generated revenue, IGR, projection for 2021 budget was estimated at N16.6bn out of the total recurrent revenue size of N83.3bn.

According to him, “The Borno state government projected funds would accrue from the statutory monthly allocation from the federation account, grants and loans and other financial supports.”

The approved 2021 budget size of N248.3 billion was targeted to improve security, boost agriculture and food production, and discourage dependence on food aids.

Noted that reconstruction of public infrastructure including roads, hospitals and water supply points are ongoing across the state.

He added that, the budget will also address the impacts of the corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic on the people.

The Finance Commissioner warned heads and finance directors of government ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) against spending outside budgetary allocations.

“You would be punished for violating any of the financial rules and regulations, while implementing the budget,” he warned.
