Former National Planning Minister Advocates Renaming Of The Ministry

DSC_8494Dr Shamsuddeen Usman, a former Minister and Deputy Chairman, National Planning Commission has advocated that the new ministry of budget and national planning should be renamed Ministry of National Planning and Budget (MNP&B)
Dr Usman gave this advice as a panelist and discussant at the ongoing Annual Joint Planning Board meeting organised by the Ministry of Budget and National Planning in collaboration with the Kano State Government holding at Tahir Guest Palace, Kano
The former minister explained that the naming ‘national planning and budget’ is a global standard because funds allocation (budgeting) comes only after a plan has been developed and approved
‘Appropriate budgetary allocation is achieved only after a well designed and articulated plan is on ground and so in any case budget is derived from planning’
Dr Usman commended the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari for bringing the budget to the national planning,  describing the decision as appropriate to ensure judicious allocation of resources based on approved plan
In his contribution to a paper presented on monitoring and evaluation and the menace of abandoned projects in the country, the former minister said that there is a comprehensive list of abandoned projects in the custody of the National Planning Ministry which he was able to compiled during his time as a minister and advise the ministry to do a little update and move on.
