At kosofepost, We are currently writing an article related to the local government budget administration for the public good in Kosofe and its sister lcdas.
Our intention is to make public , the article once its ready. Its centred on the local annual secret budgets rather than been an open budget. As usual, there is an annual frequently used key word by the council bosses” Budget Retreats” events.
Both the terms Budget stakeholders forum meeting and budget retreats events are only understandable by the council managers, Majority leaders, councilors, supers ,SLG and the executive chairmen.
The general people constituting about 90% of the electorates don’t know like the way they don’t know the items and cost in the annual budget of their council’s.
Governor Ambode and president Buhari had presented their 2018 budget items and cost ,and its in the public domains for the apt scrutiny.
Ironically, the definition of the Lagos state and the Federal government budget is different from the local government budgets perspective as observed over 5years.
And the definition of budget retreats from the largest library in the world”internet” might be at variance with the local governments administrators definition or explanation. Therefore , before completing our said article and to make an informed write up;
We plead with the local government staffs or worker’s or those that know their mode of operandi to Please, explain the meaning of budget retreats to Kosofepost to help KP from making deformed opinion on the subject and complete the article in good time.
Note: For confidential reasons you can send your definition or explanations to any of our communications channels you know .
