Lagos Assembly Resumes From Recess, Silent On 2019 Budget by thebiggestgists: 2:10am On Jan 08
The Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday resumed plenary without deliberations on Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s 2019 budget proposal.

The News Agency of Nigeria reported that the lawmakers commenced a three-week recess on December 18, 2018, for the Christmas and New Year holidays.

The House, which resumed on Monday, failed to discuss any issue before adjourning till Thursday, January 10, due to its inability to form a quorum.

The Lagos State Government had been criticised for not keeping to its tradition of presenting its annual budget before the beginning of a new year.

But in a statement on January 3, the Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Mr Olusegun Banjo, explained that the 2019 budget of N852.317bn was already before the state House of Assembly and was intended to be read on December 24, 2018.

Banjo said Ambode had also sent a verbal message on his intention to present the budget on December 24, 2018, after the State Executive Council had approved it on December 19, 2018.

“But the ceremony was postponed as the House was on recess and could not form a quorum,” he had said.

NAN reported that when the house resumed plenary on Monday, it only sat to adjourn.

The Chairman, House Committee on Public Accounts (State), Mr Moshood Oshun, moved the motion for adjournment, while Mr Segun Olulade, representing Epe II, seconded the motion.

Lool.. what's the néed of making budget when we know half of the money goes to tinubu.

The reason why ambode doesn't wanna submit budget is that, tinubu and his boys are caging him. They feel if 2019 budget is passed, ambode can sue the funds to support other party or candidates as revenge for his 2nd term loss. So they strangling him of Finance to do just that.

The budget is already prepared but the plan of tinubu is sanwo olu will be the one to sign it into law and then compensate tinubu for helping him win

Resumes plenary... They sure they've got to pass the 2019 budget for the governor to sign into law... They've started playing politics with it. I believe Gov Ambode's compelled to joining the Sanwolu campaign is a bait the Lagos assembly is using to hold him.
