Oyo House okays N159.6bn budget


 The Oyo State House of Assembly on Tuesday in Ibadan approved the sum of N159.6 billion as the budget for 2013 fiscal year.

The amount had a variation of more than N7 billion from the original budget of N152.1 billion brought before the House in January.

The budget was passed following the third reading of the bill after necessary amendments were made by the Committee of the Whole House at plenary.

Addressing newsmen after the sitting of the House, Segun Olaleye (ACN- Ibadan North II), said the variation was approved to make adequate funds available for the execution of projects in critical sectors.
