Hey there, middle schoolers! Exciting news from Katsina State! Governor Dikko Radda has just signed a huge budget of over 300.6 billion Naira into law. But what does that mean? Let’s break it down for you.
The governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Ibrahim Kaula Mohammed, shared that this extra budget will be used to fight against insecurity, help reduce poverty, and provide assistance to those who need it the most in the state.
The Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Nasir Yahya-Daura, presented the budget to the governor last Friday. This shows that the government is serious about taking care of its citizens and creating a safer and more prosperous place for everyone to live.
During the signing ceremony, Governor Radda expressed his hopes that this supplementary budget will contribute to the state’s development and bring a brighter future for all the residents. He also praised the lawmakers for their hard work in creating the budget and emphasized the importance of unity and cooperation between the executive and the legislature.
It’s great to see that the governor is committed to being transparent and accountable in how the resources are allocated and used for the state’s development.
You might be wondering why a supplementary budget is needed. Well, Governor Radda requested permission from the House of Assembly to approve this extra budget because it will add to the 2023 budget that was already signed by the previous governor, Aminu Masari, in December 2022. This means that more money will be available to address important issues and support the people of Katsina State.
That’s all for now, middle schoolers! Stay tuned for more exciting news!
