He said almost every ministry is working towards replacing inefficient senior officials with those who are more productive and proactive. He stated the ministries will soon repeal marginal expenditures which are not specified for tangible purposes.
He explained some items of the budgets in several ministries are fraught with problems as some expenditures are not clear since they are denoted with expressions such as “other expenses”. He stressed the problem of the government is not about availability of resources but administrative orderliness, which is currently under review
