The State shows a medium debt position that appears sustainable in the long term. The medium debt position results from the State’s average performance in terms of mobilizing IGR underpinned by the successful tax administration reforms introduced recently in May 2020. The State controls its recurrent expenditure growth and reduces the level of its public debt due to the collapse of oil prices, COVID-19 pandemic and exchange rate fluctuations.

Global Credit Rating (GCR)
Global Credit Ratings has accorded the above credit ratings to Gombe State Government of Nigeria (“Gombe State”) based on the following key criteria:
Although, a number of economic policies have been implemented to drive rapid industrialisation and diversify revenue streams, these programmes have yielded few tangible benefits, with revenue growth remaining weak, registering around the N50bn mark in the last seven years. This has been exacerbated by the significant dependence on oil price linked allocations from the Federal Government of Nigeria (“FGN”). While this source plays an important role in the funding structure, the unpredictability of earnings hampers financial planning, while also exposing a substantial funding gap, as has played out in the last few years.
The current expense base appears manageable (as recurring revenue was sufficient to cover costs). Nevertheless, higher staff costs and overheads saw the expense ratio expand to 69%, partly constraining the operating surplus in FY17. Nevertheless, a combination of robust income growth and cost rationalisation measures should drive growth in surpluses over the medium term, which will free up cash for capex developments.
