Kogi N11bn supplementary budget

Nigerian News Update » Nigerian Newspapers
Punch Newspaper
The Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has submitted a proposed supplementary budget of N11bn for the 2017 fiscal year to the state Assembly for approval.

Bello said the supplementary budget would take care of “certain areas of economic development that were not previously captured in the budget,” adding that it would enable the administration to continue to execute its projects.

The governor, in a letter to the Assembly seeking approval for the supplementary budget, said the funds would be used to address security issues and other sectoral challenges that were within and outside the current approved budget.

Bello had, earlier in the year, signed a N174,851,544.523 appropriation bill into law after it was approved by the state assembly.

The Speaker of the Assembly, Ahmed Imam, after reading the letter on the floor of the House, directed the Majority Leader, Mathew Kolawole, to put it on the order paper for consideration on the next legislative day.

The House is expected to consider the governor’s request when the member resumes sitting on Tuesday (today).
