Abdulrazaq signs Kwara 2020 budget

Date: 2020-01-31

The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on Thursday signed the 2020 Appropriation Bill of N162,487,666,170.00 into law, saying it was designed to rebuild, uplift the people and addresses infrastructural deficit.

AbdulRazaq in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye commended the House of Assembly for the thorough scrutiny of the budget proposal and for its speedy passage.

He said, "This is not a rubber stamp budget. I know there are changes but I agree with it because as representatives of the people, you are closer to the people and can make input into the budget."

Apart from driving the socioeconomic and infrastructural growth, AbdulRazaq said the budget would lift as many people as possible out of poverty.

"It is a budget that will help the poorest of the poor and increase our GDP. We also intend to commence the School Feeding Programme this year. So many other programmes and projects have been captured in the budget to benefit the people. This is indeed a budget for the people of Kwara State," the governor added.

The Speaker of the State House of Assembly Salihu Yakubu said the budget was thoroughly scrutinised by the lawmakers before its passage on Wednesday.
