The governor’s aide said the council also noted that based on the review of revenue flows during the first half of the year and other fiscal information more income would be accrue to the state.
“It has been projected that more income would accrue into the state consolidated revenue fund than earlier projected.
“The SEC, therefore, considered and approved a proposal of supplementary budget for onward submission to the state House of Assembly for further legislative action,” he said.
He that the council also approved the award of contract for reconstruction of the damaged section of Darai-Gilima road at the cost of N291,31,703.76.
