The State of States Report is an annual analytical research by BudgIT to examine the overall fiscal position and opportunities at the sub-national level in Nigeria.
Over the years, BudgIT has discovered that most states in Nigeria struggle financially, both in revenue generation and expenditure execution and we believe that with careful planning, this poor trend can be reversed.
This year, we reviewed the fiscal performance of all 36 states in Nigeria. We examine their expenditure obligations, revenue streams and debt profiles. We estimated states that are managing their resources prudently and vice versa.
This availed us the opportunity to predict those who are likely to struggle to meet their obligations and states that would have the right resources to invest in their states and people.
The report is our signature effort to provide policymakers at state levels with robust insights on how to increase their sustainability level.
This 2020 edition takes a deep dive into fiscal sustainability as measured by the capacity to meet recurrent obligations while also examining epidemic preparedness financing at the state level.
