Sat Jan 11th, 2020 - Enugu

Mr Geoffrey Mba, the Chairman, Enugu State House of Assembly Committee on Information, has said that the speedy passage of the 2020 Appropriation Bill was meant to restore the budget system in the state.

Mba said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Friday, adding that the feat was also inconsonant with the promise of the seventh assembly to the people.

He rebutted speculations in some quarters that the budget was hurriedly passed, pointing out that the lawmakers were thorough and meticulous during the budget defence.
