Governor Chime Signs Enugu 2015 Budget



Enugu State Governor, Sullivan Chime, on Friday signed the state’s 2015 Appropriation Bill of about N96.735bn into law.
This followed the passage of the Bill by the State House of Assembly after a motion moved by the House Leader, Sunday Ude-Okoye, and seconded by Deputy Leader, John Ukuta.
Signing the Bill at the Government House, Chime promised a speedy implementation of the budget, as well a “continuous delivery of good governance and dividends of democracy to the people” until his last day in office.
A breakdown of the Bill, tagged ‘budget of transition’ which would be the last to be administered by Chime, shows that the total sum of N54.9bn, or 56.8 per cent, was earmarked for capital expenditure while N41.7bn, would be used for recurrent expenditure.
Speaker of the House, Eugene Odo, called for a speedy implementation of the budget, to facilitate a smooth transition to a new administration by May 29.
