2014 Budget: South West Neglects In The Allocation Of The Projects by Nobody: 6:27am On Dec 31, 2013
AS the presidency is addressing claims of marginalisation in federal appointments by the South West, the zone may be facing a new form of discrimination, going by the proposed details in some ministries in 2014 budget.
A breakdown of new projects proposed by the Federal Ministry of Water Resources, which was obtained by the Nigerian Tribune, showed the South West largely neglected in the allocation of the projects, compared with other five geopolitical zones.
Analysis of capital projects of about N30 billion proposed by the ministry showed the three zones of the North taking the lion share of over 80 per cent, while with three southern zones competed with 20 per cent, of which South-West had less than two per cent.
Of over 30 new irrigation projects proposed in the 2014 budget, only two were located in the South West.
The two, lower and middle Ogun, however, had only design funding of less than N10 million, in contrast to similar new irrigation projects in Kaduna, Kano and Yobe, to which over N1.2 billion was allocated.
Of the 41 new earth dam projects proposed by the ministry, South West had only one at Ile-Ife, Osun State, with about 75 per cent of the dams located in the North, while the old Eastern region had the rest.
Further checks showed that while the Ile-Ife dam had only N100 million allocated to it, similar projects located in the Middle Belt and core North had between N250 million to over N500 million allocated to them in the next fiscal year.
The South West was not only neglected in the areas of irrigation and new dams, the region was also shortchanged in town/city water projects, as there was no allocation to the region in the over 40 new water works projects in the country. A check showed the North being the major beneficiary of the projects, followed by the South-South and the South East.
Northern cities benefitting from the water works projects included Talata Marafa, Takum, Gombe, Biu, Zungeru, Langtang, Damaturu, Uguru, Bulkashuwa, among others. While the reasons for the lopsidedness was not clear, the proposal is, however, subject to review by the relevant committees of the two chambers of the National Assembly.
Minister of Water Resources, Mrs Sarah Ochekpe, it will be recalled, is from Plateau State, while the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Alhaji Baba Ahmed, is a royal prince from Bauchi State.

everybody knows that nothern nigeria lacks water bodies like streams , lakes n farming is their main occupation, meanwhile in the south they r ample water bodies. why waste monies on dam when we have enough supply of water for irrigation. abi them think say dam na oil well? they must talk!

Why pick on only the budget of ministry of water resources? What about railways, road construction, power, etc?

Even in water resources, projects cannot just be divided based on geopolitical zones. Due to paucity of funds, projects should be prioritized to areas of highest impact. We all know that the north is the food basket of the nation and as such will naturally have more need for dams. Also, the north has more problem of acute water shortages. So politics aside, it is easy to understand why dams and other water facilities are concentrated in the north.

yorubas vote is insignificant in Nigeria politics. obasanjo won presidency without any yorubas vote. in any case GEJ will purchase yorubas votes from Ahmed thiefnubu.

I don't know why SW is crying foul. When they and their cronies where marginalizing other zones nobody said anything

Abeg help me tell her oo, well, she's just saying her own. The many yorubas I've come across in 4 SW states are pitching their tents with GEJ, Afenifere has SPOKEN; thanks Ondo is already in the kitty...
And I hear there are massive plans to relocate all oil companies to their areas of operation, starting with Chevron
Let's wait and see who wins 2015 P.elections.

so because you were born and bred in southwest, yoruba will leave Buhari/ Fashola or Tambuwal/ Fashola and vote for Jonathan/ sambo? you kid won't kill me. As for your life story you typed above, that tells you how accommodating and tolerant yorubas are. same way we go to developed nations to buy lands and houses albeit UK. Can the same tolerance be replicated by your kinsmen aka villagers? No

so young man, yorubas don't do follow follow like your kinsmen. Tinubu is being appreciated because of many things in which Fashola is one one them. Another thing is that the yorubas are always like to be in the opposition right from the days of colonialism till date. so you folks can change that.
