Mr Simon Lalong, has forwarded an additional budget proposal of N6.5 billion the Plateau State House of Assembly for their approval. This was communicated from the number one citizen by the Speaker of the House, Mr Peter Nazi at a read during Tuesday’s plenary session. The supplementary budget was as a result of the upward review in the financial activities of some Ministries, Departments and Agencies in the state.

The communiqué also stated that there is the need to meet the enormous demands of governance and meet with the needs and aspirations of the citizens. It further stated that the call for the passage of the additional budget was in line with Section 121 and 123 of the amended 1999 Constitution. It stated further that more than N3.9 billion would be for recurrent expenditure while more than N2.1 billion of the budget would be for recurrent expenditure. If the additional budget is passed, Plateau Sate’s 2016 budget would exceed N152.8 billion because over N146. 7 billion has already been appropriated. December 13, 2016 has been fixed for the second reading of the bill.
