Speaking to newsmen shortly after signing the budget, the Permanent Secretary, Niger State Planning Commission, Hajiya Ramatu Umar explained that the 2021 budget was reviewed downward following the significant reduction in the inflow of revenue to the state.

“We removed from the allocations that were not utilized to the needed projects and this was as a result of emerging issues that were not taken into cognizance in the budget during the preparation of the initial budget. so we have to review the budget in order to meet up our aspirations and developmental projects.”
