Gombe state government has said it will ensure adequate tracking of all incomes and expenditure in compliance with this year’s budgetary provision.

The state commissioner of finance, Mal Muhammad Gambo Magaji, stated this while briefing journalists on the breakdown of this year’s budget in Gombe.

Mal Muhammad Gambo said the move would serve as feedback mechanism in order to achieve the desired objectives of providing the dividend of democracy to the people of the state.

He also said that the state government would deploy technology in revenue collection to ensure that all the revenue collected directly goes into the coffers.

The commissioner also assured that as part of its revenue drive, the current administration would complete the moribund motor park as well as utilize the International Conference Centre in order to boost the revenue profile of the state.

He said adequate provision has been made in the budget for the development of infrastructure, deepening the education sector investment, human capital development and zero tolerance to non-adherence to fiscal responsibility and management principles.
