2022 Supplementary Budget Scale Through Second Reading In Ogun Assembly

By Our Correspondent

The 2022 Supplementary Appropriation Law of Ogun State has scaled through second reading on the floor of the State House of Assembly, with lawmakers assuring that the supplementary bill was targeted at ensuring increased funding for new and ongoing infrastructural projects across the State.

The Supplementary budget, which was considered today during the plenary presided over by Speaker Olakunle Oluomo according to the Governor’s letter conveying the bill to the Assembly was “in view of certain exigencies of Government, to re-invigorate funding of some key projects especially in the infrastructure sector which require urgent attention to sustain the gains made so far”.

Opening debate on the second reading of the bill titled" H.B No. 079/OG/2022- Year 2022 Supplementary Appropriation Law", shortly after a motion for the second reading was moved by the Chairman, House Committee on Finance and Appropriation, Kunle Sobukanla and seconded by Kemi Oduwole, Sobukanla added that the budget virement would outsource for funds from other budget heads to capital expenditure.

Corroborating Sobukanla's view, a member representing Ifo II State Constituency, Ganiyu Oyedeji, sought for the support of his colleague-lawmakers for the speedy passage of the bill, stating that the bill would bring about more projects that would cut across all sectors of the State economy. 

Responding, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. commended the lawmakers for their contributions to the bill and thereafter charged the bill to the Committee on Finance and Appropriation for further legislative actions.
