MINATD: Enhancing Decentralisation As Priority
FCFA 36, 289 billion was yesterday defended as draft budget for the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation at the National Assembly.
The Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation, René Emmanuel Sadi, says his ministry will pursue the enhancement of the decentralisation process and the modernisation of Cameroon’s territorial administration. He was speaking yesterday in Yaounde while defending the 2017 draft budget before the Finance and Budget Committee of the National Assembly chaired by Hon. Rosette Ayayi.
In the presence of the Minister of Public Service and Administrative Reforms, Michel Ange Angouin, representing the Vice Prime Minister, Minister Delegate at the Presidency in charge of Relations with the Assemblies, Amadou Ali, and the Minister Delegate in the Ministry of Finance, Paul Elung Che, the MINATD boss stated that the ministry will amongst other things construct and renovate civil status registration offices, strengthen national civil protection measures as well as rehabilitate offices and residences of administrative authorities.
Though the draft budget of the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Decentralisation has dropped from FCFA 42, 1 billion in 2016 to FCFA 36, 289 billion in 2017, the investment budget has increased by FCFA 300 million, which Minister Sadi said will maintain the current dynamism of improving the operational capacities of administrative authorities.
