The Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has signed N400.3bn 2019 appropriation bill into law.
Amosun signed the bill on Monday, at the conference room, Governor’s Office, Abeokuta.
The bill was passed into law by the state house of assembly last week after reducing over N2bn from the amount submitted by the governor.
The governor, however, appreciated the speaker and members of the House for doing the needful by passing the bill on time.
The governor also appreciated the ministries of Budget and Planning and Finance for a job well done.
He assured that the budget would be adequately funded for the betterment of the people.
“Throughout the eight years of our administration, our budgets have always been presented and considered by the House and signed into law on time. This shows that we have not taken our people for granted.”
The governor, while reviewing how his administration had fared in budget preparation and implementation, expressed optimism that the next government would improve on it.
The Speaker, Suraju Adekunmbi, who had earlier presented the clean copy of the budget to the governor in the company with other members, disclosed that, after taking a critical look at the proposed budget, the House decided to approve the sum of N400.3bn.
