Government budgets are a principal channel of allocating financial resources and managing government expenditures to usher in economic growth and implement the development plans and programmes in the country. Budgets also are a financial mirror reflecting the prioritization of programmes and policies by the government, given the financial operating environment and the overall state of the economy. Thus, the dynamic links between the budgets and the development plans are a demonstration of the commitment of the government of the day to convert plans into an effective programme of action.
