Ambode writes Lagos Assembly on 2017 budget re-ordering
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Monday sought the approval of the Lagos State House of Assembly to re-order the 2017 Budget.
Ambode’s request was contained in a letter he personally signed, and which was read on the floor of the House by its clerk, Azeez Sanni, during plenary.
According to the request, a total sum of N42.028 billion comprising N31.105 billion from capital expenditure and N10.922 billion from recurrent expenditure will be re-ordered if the proposal is approved by the assembly.
The governor said the re-ordering would help the state government to upscale the road construction and rehabilitation going on across the state to improve connectivity.
Ambode also said part of the re-ordering would be spent on purchasing 700 buses in line with the state transportation reforms.
He added that the re-ordering would also enhance the upgrading of equipment for the state emergency management authority and for improved security equipment for better surveillance.
