According to the governor, capital expenditure in the projected budget will gulp the sum of N209,999,054,198 which is 57.21% while the sum of N157, 096,029,253 or 42.79% of the budget would be spent on recurrent expenditure.

It would be recalled that the year 2018 had as its total budget size, N308,888,558,898, comprising N147,273,989,898 recurrent expenditure, and capital expenditure of N161,614,569,000.

Presenting the budget at a well-attended session of the Delta State House of Assembly which had the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori presiding, Governor Okowa disclosed that the projected 2019 budget christened, “Budget of sustainable growth,” would enable his administration consolidate on the successes and achievements of his administration.

“Despite the fluctuating fortunes of the economy in the last three-and-half years, I humbly note that our State has continued to forge ahead; workers are paid regularly, thousands of previously unemployed youths are gainfully employed, and many of our people now enjoy better facilities in terms of roads, water, education and health. Agriculture has received a strong boost with many cluster farms springing up in different parts of the state and, even more importantly, our people remain committed to peace and harmonious living,” he said.

He asserted: “We shall build on this stable growth to position Delta State as a dynamic economy for the future; indeed, a Stronger Delta beckons.”

Road Infrastructure took the greatest chunk of the budgetary proposal with sum of N79.6 billion while the Education Sector would gulp the sum of N26.8 billion.
