Al-Makura presents N67.1bn 2017 Appropriation Bill to assembly



Gov Tanko Al-Maku­ra of Nasarawa State on Thursday presented the 2017 Budget proposal of N67.1billion to the state House of Assem­bly for consideration.

The governor, who tagged the 2017 Appropria­tion Bill as: ‘Budget of Ref­ormation’ said despite the dwindling revenue alloca­tion from the Federation Allocation and the sharp drop on internally generat­ed revenue, the government had remained focus in de­livering the basic facilities in the state, through prag­matism and accountability.

Al-Makura said the bud­get was aimed at consoli­dating his administration’s achievements in fighting poverty, unemployment and to ensure even develop­ment in the state.
