Enugu 2017 Appropriation Bill passed into law






ENUGU—ENUGU State 2017 Appropriation Bill
of N105,719,471,000.00, was, yesterday,
passed into law by the Enugu State House of
Assembly.
When accented into law by Governor Ifeanyi
Ugwuanyi, the budget estimate will now be a
working document for the fiscal year.
Ugwuanyi on December 23, 2016 presented the
budget tagged, “Budget of economic recovery
and inclusive development,” at the floor of the
House for consideration.

The passage of the budget followed a
presentation of the report on the Appropriation
Bill by Bismark Eneh, Udi South Constituency.
Eneh said his committee did a thorough job and
that most government agencies took their
presentations during budget defence serious,
hence the quick passage of the appropriation
bill.
When the House was dissolved into a
committee of the Whole House, the budget was
taken item by item and it was read the third
time before it was eventually passed into law.
Speaker of the House, Hon. Edward Ubosi who
expressed happiness with his colleagues on the
passage of the bill, said that state government
had now been given the leeway to spend the
budget as was contained in the appropriation
law.
