See the states with the highest recurrent expenditures…

I have taken the time to review the budgets of the 36 states for 2014 to see how each of them as led by either the PDP, APC, LP, APGA fare on this subject of “infrastructural development versus emoluments” – this I have done in an attempt to situate what can even remotely be described as the spending patterns of these political parties.

As you would see from the prepared table, the APC-led states actually have the pattern of spending more on Recurrent expenditure than the PDP, APGA, LP as much as those differences are not very sharp – this would suggest that this issue of possibly over-bloated recurrent expenditure is a general problem facing the polity rather than one created by a particular political part.

Then again, have we taken into consideration the effect of increasing the minimum wage from N8,500 to an average of N18,000 being an extra 53% on what each state is expected to pay in the new year?
