  1. 1. EKITI STATE OF NIGERIA PRESENTATION OF DETAILED ANALYSIS OF 2017 BUDGET BY THE HON. COMMISSIONER FOR BUDGET AND ECONOMIC PLANNING, CHIEF GBENGA OLAJIDE ON ........................ 2017 Members of the State Executive Council, Permanent Secretaries, General Managers/Executive Secretaries, Members of the Organised Private Sectors (OPS), Members of Civil Society Organisations, Gentlemen of the Press, Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen. I am highly elated to present the detailed analysis of 2017 Budget of our State to this august gathering. It will be recalled that the Budget was presented by His Excellency, the Governor, Dr. Peter Ayodele Fayose to the Ekiti State House of Assembly on 6th December, 2016 for necessary consideration. The 2017 Appropriation Bill was passed by the Honourable Members on 19th December, 2016 and it was signed into law two days later by His Excellency, the Governor, thus making Ekiti the first to pass the 2017 Budget into Law. 2. You are all aware that one of the statutory responsibilities of my Ministry is the presentation of the Analysis of each year’s Budget to the Stakeholders. The 2017 Budget is tagged “Budget of Consolidation and Higher Heights” because we believe
  2. 2. 2 that with God on our side, Ekiti State will be number one in all areas of our endeavour. 3. The Budget size of N93,456,399,143.40 was presented to the Ekiti State House of Assembly on 6th December, 2016 made up of N55,028,891,248.80 or 59% Recurrent expenditure and N38,427,507,894.60 or 41% Capital Expenditure. After due consideration, the House eventually passed a Budget size of N94,456,399,143.40 made up of N55,028,891,248.80 or 58% Recurrent Expenditure and N39,427,507,894.60 or 42% Capital Expenditure. This is an increase of N1Billion from the Budget size presented to the House of Assembly by His Excellency, the Governor. I must state here that the increase became expedient due to the fact that additional projects were conceived to be executed during the 2017 Fiscal Year to meet the yearnings and aspirations of the good people of Ekiti State. 4.
