Public Relations

The Department of Budget and Planning is a non – executing Department in the sense that it does not provide direct service or utility to members of the public, aside from statistical information. It plays only a coordinating role in the economic development activities of other Ministries and bodies in such a way as to engineer a systematic and balanced development of the State in general. Considering the relative backwardness of our State and the gigantic amount of human and material resources needed to accelerate its development, this coordinating role becomes even more desirable. In the discharge of this responsibility, you need to establish direct and regular liaison with all Ministries of the State Government as well as relevant Federal Ministries and International Development Agencies and Financiers. In particular, while you strive to bring the State into focus to qualify for further assistance from these agencies, you have to equally keep the momentum of the activities already started through regular correspondences and preferably, personal visits.
