Secrets Reporters

The Delta state government has earmarked the sum of 2.7 Billion Naira for the construction/expansion of government quarters in the State.

The information was contained in the Delta State 2024 budget, signed into law by the governor, Sheriff Oborevwori.

Recall that in December 2023, Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State signed the 2024 Appropriation Bill into law, totaling N724,979,313,867 billion.

The budget allocation comprises N316,624,462,711 for recurrent expenditure and N408,354,851,156 for capital expenditure under the theme “Budget of Hope and Optimism.”

Governor Oborevwori emphasised that the 2024 budget aims to propel the state’s economy towards sustainable growth. He highlighted its potential to stimulate domestic and foreign investments, bolster productivity, and improve Delta State’s overall business environment.

The construction/expansion of government quarters in the state is part of projects to be carried out by the Ministry of Housing for 2024.

A total sum of 14,709,168,712 was allocated to the Ministry of Housing.  A  breakdown of the Ministry’s budget shows that the Ministry will also spend the sum of 1 Billion naira on social housing development across the state (pilot scheme), which was budgeted twice as part of the Ministry’s projects to be carried out for the year.

The budget also shows that the same amount was budgeted once for the same project in the revised 2023 budget.

It was also discovered that the renovation and maintenance of government quarters will gulp the sum of 1.2 Billion Naira, while the construction/Expansion and maintenance of Government Offices will gulp a total of 1.7 Billion Naira.

This is coming as the crippling economic situation continues to bite hard on Nigerians, and the Delta State government is yet to roll out concrete plans or palliative to cushion the harsh economic effect on the citizens of the State.
