Jigawa State House of Assembly, on Tuesday, approved the 2021 supplementary budget by raising the proposed estimate to over N2.4 billion.
Government Badaru Abubakar had earlier written to the State House of Assembly seeking for their approval of the sum of N18.9b as 2021 supplementary budget.
The Governor said the proposed bill will facilitate the completion of ongoing projects on the areas of road construction, Health sector, education, commerce and industry, water supply and sanitation.
While deliberating on the bill, member representing Maigatari constituency Muhammad Abubakar told the lawmakers the need to inject the 2019,2020 and 2021 constituency projects deficit in the supplementary budget.
The House thereby added the sum of N2.4b on the proposed bill of 18.9b sent by the state executives, bringing the total amount to N20,044,291,846.57.
