The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode, presented the 2019 budget of N852.13bn today; Tuesday to the Lagos State House of Assembly.
This year’s budget is lower than that of last year, which was N1046trn. According to the governor, the decision to present a lower budget was as a result of the budget performance of 2018 which was put into consideration before preparing this year’s budget.
“The 2019 budget is all encompassing and will cater for all Lagosians” said Ambode.
The lawmakers had been at loggerhead over the 2019 budget accusing the governor of spending funds that had not been approved for the 2019 appropriation year.
