President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the largest component of budget expenditure comes from personnel cost.

Buhari said this while presenting the 2021 Appropriation Bill to a joint session of the National Assembly on Thursday.

While admitting that the Federal Government is spending more on recurrent expenditure, Buhari blamed this on non-existent personnel (ghost workers) and unauthorised allowances introduced by Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs).

In a bid to curtail the trend, the President ordered heads of the MDAs to get approval before embarking on any recruitment exercise.
