The Sokoto State House of Assembly has approved the N270.1 billion budget for 2024.

This came after the House Committee on Finance and Appropriation approved its report in plenary on Wednesday.

The Committee Chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Zakari (APC-Rabah), noted that the N270 billion submitted by Governor Ahmed Aliyu remained unchanged.

According to Zakari, the budget includes N97.8 billion in recurring expenditure and N172.2 billion in capital expenditure.

“These figures remain unchanged from the governor’s submission.”

”However, in response to genuine subcommittee requests, the committee moved resources to fulfill vital demands and interests of our people,” he said.

Following that, Speaker Alhaji Tukur Bala presented the report for discussion, and it was unanimously adopted by the MPs via voice vote.
