Description/Story: 

After the Delta State 2013 Budget proposal of N398.31 was presented to the House of Assembly, the government raised alarm that some private individuals and Government functionaries were putting the Lawmakers under pressure to jack up the Budget figures to accommodate their selfish interest. But the Legislatures went ahead to approve an increased Budget of N472bn. And for the Governor to sign it without complaint is an indication that the executive arm supported the Legislatures in disregarding due process in passing the Bill into Law.

 

It is an indication that the implementation of the 2013 budget will go the same way the 2012 went, where amount spent equaled approved budget of N437.21 with no impact neither on the economy nor wellbeing of Deltans.
