The Ogun House of Assembly on Monday passed the State’s 2014 Appropriation Bill of N210.2 billion.

The bill was passed after the Chairman, House Committee on Finance and Appropriation, Olusola Bankole, read the committee’s report.

Bankole said the budget was increased by N81 million to enhance the revenue generation drive of some of the ministries that had the capacity to generate more than what was proposed in the budget.

He said the committee recommended that state commissioners for Finance and Budget should ensure that Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) adhered strictly to the execution of their projects.

The report of the committee was adopted by the House and the bill was read the third time.

The Majority Leader, Isreal Jolaoso, moved the motion for its third reading and was seconded by Mrs Elizabeth Anifowoshe.

The Speaker, Suraj Adekunbi, after the passage of the bill, ordered that a clean copy be sent to Gov. Ibikunle Amosun for assent.
