Sokoto 2020 budget: Tambuwal allocates N122,829,552,208.08 for completion capital projects


Governor Aminu Tambuwal yesterday presented to the Sokoto State House of Assembly a budget proposal of N202,444,458,429 for consideration for the 2020 fiscal year.

The figure surpassed the N170,802,771,486 budgeted for 2019.

Tagged ‘Budget of Sustained Socio-economic Development and Inclusiveness’, the estimate allotted N122,829,552,208.08 for capital projects.

Tambuwal said the budget would, among other things, focus on the completion of projects started in the preceding year and prompt execution of new ones in line with the development agenda of his administration.

He expressed satisfaction with members of the Assembly, who, despite having more members from the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), had closed ranks across partisan divides to work for the development of the state.
