*Oyo assembly passes Makinde’s N50b supplementary budget*
Oyo State House of Assembly yesterday passed into law, the N50 billion supplementary budget forwarded to it by Governor Seyi Makinde.
The bill was passed after the consideration of the report of the Ad hoc Committee on Public Account and Appropriation headed by Mr. Akeem Mustapha, during yesterday’s plenary.
The governor on Tuesday, in a letter sent and read on the floor of the house, requested the passage of the N50billion supplementary budget, saying the fund is to cater for three things, which were not captured in the passed 2021 Appropriation Bill.
The request scaled through first and second reading on Tuesday, with the lawmakers adjourning till yesterday, on the grounds that prompt attention be given to the governor’s request.
The bill, after a clause-by-clause consideration at the Committee of the Whole House chaired by Speaker Adebo Ogundoyin, was unanimously passed into law.
Speaking with reporters after the plenary, the Chairman of the Adhoc Committee, Mustapha, said the budget was for infrastructural development.
The three projects, according to Governor Makinde, include Ibadan Circular Road (N25b), Iseyin-Ogbomoso Road (N15b) and Ibadan Airport Improvement (N10b).
The assembly yesterday screened and approved the appointment of Mr. David Okedeji as the chairman, Oyo State Audit Service Commission
