Kwara Assembly Passes 2021 Budget Into Law

Kwara State House of Assembly  has on Thursday passed a sum of N137.6 billion in the state 2021 appropriation bill into law.

The lawmakers passed the budget estimate into law after considering the report of the House Committee on Finance and Appropriation on the budget proposal.

Presenting the report, the Committee Chairman, Ibrahim Ambali Olatunji representing Owode-Onire Constituency, expressed the belief that proper implementation of the budget would turn around the economic fortunes of the state.

Hon Olatunji noted that the state government had taken appropriate measures to tap into its internal resources to improve the well-being of the people.

He reiterated the legislature’s commitment towards supporting the executive through constant oversight functions of the House standing committees on capital projects to ensure transparency.

This year’s budget size which comprised 51 percent recurrent expenditure and 49 percent capital scaled through the third reading before the final passage.

The house upwardly reviewed from N134.8 billion to N137.6 billion with two point two percent increase.

House Speaker Yakubu Danlad-Salihu immediately directed the Clerk of the House Hajia Alimah Jummai Kperogi to produce a clean copy of the appropriation bill for governor’s assent.
