Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State has said this year’s budget of N521.6 billion will be financed through internally generated revenue, IGR.

He said this at a Mass organised at the Government House Chapel, Enugu, to mark the resumption of work in the New Year and pray for God’s blessings upon the state.

The governor also assured that the budget would be implemented to the letter to tackle the lingering poverty and hardship occasioned by the subsidy removal.

According to him, government would review workers’ welfare and purchasing power and called on them to be ready to put in their best.

Mbah, who said that only about 12 per cent of the N521.6 billion budget would be funded through borrowing, appealed to the people for more support through tax payment and protection of public assets.

“Now that we have this ambitious budget, which we are committed to implementing to the fullest, it is also for our people to continue to support the government.

“We must make sure that we protect government’s assets. They are our assets,” he added.
