Jigawa State expenditure 2004–2010

This fact sheet analyses Jigawa State Government expenditure 2004–2009 and presents the main findings. Average capital budget implementation was 65% over the six-year period, meaning performance was above average. Expenditure on capital programmes was generally below estimates, ranging from 35% to 87%. Debt servicing was a major expense between 2004 and 2007 but dropped significantly in subsequent years due to a shift in the policy on loan financing.

Expenditure on roads, education and housing increased significantly, particularly after 2006. Capital investment in the water supply, health and general administration sectors was relatively high. Personnel and overhead costs were also high. Expenditure exceeded budget estimates, especially in 2004 and 2006. However, excess recurrent expenditure over budgeted recurrent expenditure during the six-years averaged 5%. Jigawa State Government relies heavily on transfer of substantial recurrent revenue from the consolidated revenue fund to the capital development fund to finance capital projects.
