USAID State2State Activity Engages MDAs to Develop State Action Plan in Bauchi.

-

USAID Accountability Transparency and Effectiveness (State2State) Activity, has engaged key stakeholders from Ministries, Departments and Agencies, Civil Society Organisations and People With Disability, for a two-day workshop to develop a State Action Plan for implementation from July to September 2021, and identify priority activities for year two.

Prior to the action plan workshop, a one-day orientation was also conducted for members of the newly inaugurated Bauchi State Transformation Committee.

This is part of efforts to ensure smooth implementation of the Activity in State.

The workshop is aimed at strengthen the participants’ capacity and also make them part of the State2State Activity work plan process, for them to develop the state’s Action Plan, which is expected to provide a guide that will aid smooth implemention.

The Deputy Chief of Party, State2State, Mr John Onyeukwu, in an interview with Radio Nigeria said in view of the dwindling resources from the Federation Account, every state is trying to see how to effectively manage the little generated resources at their disposal so as to positively touch the lives of their people.

Mr Onyeukwu explained State2State was a reform based Activity basically helping the states do their own reforms in the area of Public Finance Management with a view to ensuring better service delivery in three thematic areas to include, Basic Education, Primary Health Care, as well as Water Sanitation and Hygiene, WASH.

He expressed optimism that with the citizens participating in the process, it would reduce conflicts across the implementing states development would be better achieved.

Also Speaking, the Permanent Secretary of the State Ministry for Budget and Planning, Alhaji Yahuza Adamu Haruna said the intervention would positively impact the state’s public finance management system, by effectively improving government spendings in various sectors.

He solicited the citizens support and cooperation for the government, to enable it execute more developmental projects that would attract investment into the state.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor, on Multilateral, Isa Saleh opined that the approach adopted by the Activity, particularly the inclusivity of different social strata would help the state to run an inclusive government.

The participants were drawn from the state Ministries of Health, Education, Water Resources, Budget and Planning, Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, the State2State Transformation Committee, State Internal Revenue Service, Audit, Office of the State Accountant General, Bureu for Public Procurement, Persons with Special Needs, the Media and Civil Society Organisations.

The USAID State2State Activity is being implemented in six states of Adamawa, Akwa Ibom, Bauchi, Ebonyi, Gombe and Sokoto.
