Taraba state governor, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku, while presenting the budget before the state House of Assembly in Jalingo at the weekend said the budget was a departure from the normal classification of seventeen programmes to only four major sectors.

According to him, the concentration on just four sectors was a deliberate plan by the government not only to focus attention on these core areas of development, but it was also informed by the desire to conform with the International Public Sector Accounting Standard (IPSAS).
