The Governor of Katsina State, Hon. Amina Bello Masari, has said his administration has successfully reduced government expenditure by as high as about 40 per cent in the past two years.

He also said the state was able to recover lost grounds in several critical sectors including education and agriculture through careful implementation of highly rewarding initiatives.

Governor Masari spoke at a town-hall meeting for Katsina indigenes living in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja yesterday, during which he also gave account of the state’s utilisation several intervention funds meant to help assist the government in meeting its obligations to the people.

Speaking on the efforts being made by his administration to save costs, Masari said his administration has literally banned foreign travels except for few occasions where its officials were sponsored by external bodies.

“We have made a lot of savings. We hardly go out of Nigeria officially except on sponsorship. None of us at leadership level has so far done that except where interested parties sponsored government officials,” he said. (THISDAY)
