Kaduna Assembly begins audit of donor funds

Share This

The Kaduna state House of Assembly yesterday considered for the second time, a motion seeking to audit the contributions received from donor agencies by the state government.

Mr. Bityong Nko, who moved the motion, said it was necessary to determine the level of intervention received from the agencies and status of projects and services implemented.

He said the audit would also assist in identifying the impact of the contributions to the socioeconomic development of the state, as well as areas of weaknesses.

Nko noted that the government had in the past received funding from development partners for infrastructure, agriculture and health services.

“It is important to know the quantum of work done and contributions received from the agencies. It will enable us to also know the value of the services rendered to the people of Kaduna State.’’

The lawmaker believed that the audit would assist the state government in making appropriate adjustments or modifications for improved utilisation of the funds.

The Deputy Speaker, Mr. Peter Adamu, who presided over the sitting, directed the House Committee on Economic Planning to conduct an in-depth investigation on the matter and report back to it on June 20. (NAN)
