N27b Bond: CSO Tasks Kwarans to Engage Their Lawmakers on Judicious Use


Kwara based Civil Society Organization, CSO, operating under the aegis of Elites Network for Sustainable Development (ENetSuD) has tasked the people of the state to engage their representatives at the State House of Assembly on judicious use of supplementary budget of N27 billion bond.

The organization said this in a statement signed by its coordinator, Dr. Abdullateef Alagbonsi and made available to Journalists.

The statement reads;

Dear Kwarans,

The Kwara State Government (KWSG) has accessed the 27 billion naira bond that will be used to fund developmental projects in Kwara State.

ENetSuD congratulates the KWSG on this success and hopes that the bond will be transparently used for the purpose for which it was sought.

However, bond is a collective patrimony of all Kwara citizens (living and unborn).

ENetSuD advises active Kwara citizens to engage their Kwara State House of Assembly (KWHA) lawmakers to consider and prioritize citizens’ engagement, as a moral necessity, in the consideration and approval of the supplementary budget, which is the next step before the bond will be used by the KWSG. This will promote public confidence in the people’s house.

ENetSuD also calls on the KWHA to ensure that the supplementary budget is exclusive and detailed for citizens’ understanding.

ENetSuD commends the KWSG for the new initiative of improving transparency in State procurement, especially by uploading contract details on the State website.
