Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has signed the state 2016 budget of over N85bn for this fiscal year into law.
In a speech after accenting to the budget, the governor noted that the instrument in the appropriation law is enormous to serve the people of the state. “It will enable us by His Grace to serve the people of Enugu State selflessly and to the glory of God and service to humanity”, he said.
Ugwuanyi thanked the speaker, his deputy and other principal officers of the House for the easy passage of the budget, describing them as the true heroes of democracy.
“On behalf of the government and people of Enugu State, I commend you and promise you that we will continue to partner to the service of our people,” he said in a brief remark before the presentation of the budget for signing.
The Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Edward Ubosi informed the governor that the budget had gone through rigorous process of readings and other stages before being passed by the House.
“Everything has been normal, it is now left for me to forward to you for assent,” he said.
The governor had appropriated over N85bn for this fiscal year and presented to the State House of Assembly which on Tuesday passed it into law after exhaustive and rigorous processes.
