PERMANENT Secretary of the Ministry of Finance and Treasury, Harry Kuma, provided an interesting observation on how government money is being spent on the field and the results it produces.
Mr Kuma revealed that based on data from 2017, the government spent a lot.
On the records, the 2017 development budget shows that spending has been well-done, hitting 90 percent.
“On financial terms, such level of spending is A-plus,” Kuma said.
But when one goes out to the field, he said implementation or what has been done in the field is less which does not reflect the level of spending on their records.
Kuma urged implementing agencies to do more in order that this country realises this level of spending.
