Clerk advocates sustainable monitoring for effective budget

The Nigerian government has been urged to adopt a sustainable monitoring regime that would guarantee effective budget implementation in the country.

A former Deputy Clerk to the National Assembly, Olayide Adelami made the call while addressing the journalists in Abuja.

Mr Adelami explained that the country needed to use its yearly budgets as instrument for effective and sustainable development.

He emphasised the need for inclusiveness and transparency in the annual budgetary process in order to reduce rancour between the executive and the legislature.

He lamented that lack of effective machinery to monitor budget implementation and late passage made successive governments to fail in the budget performance.

Mr Adelami, also called for the enactment of laws that would check misconduct at all stages of the budget process.
