The governor of Ekitit State, Ayodele Fayose has urged the federal government to extend the budget support provision to state governments by one year.
Fayose made this known during a meeting with teachers in the state at the government house in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday.
The governor also urged the federal government to consider including the local government staff in the scheme when extended.
He said: “The budget support scheme which the states have been enjoying ended last May.
“In the wisdom of the federal government we want to appeal that one; they should extend the budget support beyond the one for the state and two, to include the local government staff in the next one.”topics from
