The Governor wrote on his social media page:
“This morning, I presented our 2024 Budget proposal of ₦480,993,632,369.00 (Four Hundred and Eighty Billion, Nine Hundred and Ninety-Three Million, Six Hundred and Thirty-Two Thousand, Three Hundred and Sixty-Nine Naira) only, to the State House of Assembly, christened, “Budget of Sustainable and Shared Prosperity.”
This appropriation bill is a budget of consolidation as we march into our second term in office following the renewed mandate given to us by the good people of Bayelsa State.
Confidently, I can say the 73 percent performance of the outgoing year 2023 budget ensured we made a great impact across different sectors, hence, the wide acceptance of the Prosperity Government by the people.
In the 2024 financial year, our government will focus on completing several ongoing projects and will commence new ones with the highest allocation of N141.8 Billion to the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure followed by the Ministry of Education at N49.8 Billion and then the Ministry of Health at N26 Billion.
In keeping with the priorities and goals of our prosperity agenda to create wealth among the people, the specific objectives of the 2024 budget will include deliberate plans to empower indigenes-owned businesses and expand these businesses as well as create more manpower through different skills acquisition trainings and educational institutions.
As a government of Prosperity, the government will invest more in peace, security, and the power sector to attract new investments into Bayelsa State.”
