Wammako signs 2013 budget

05 February 2013, 09:01

Sokoto - Gov. Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State on Monday signed the state’s 2013 appropriation bill of N115.8 billion.

The State House of Assembly passed the bill last week.

Speaking at the signing ceremony in Sokoto, the governor urged workers in the state to work with the fear of God.

"Each and every one of us is accountable to Allah in spite of the place we are posted to serve,'' Wamakko said.

"If Aliyu is not seeing you, your creator, Allah, is seeing you and all of us.

"We must serve with the absolute fear of God.

"With the assenting of the 2013 appropriation bill, respective MDAs are now responsible for ensuring effective implementation of the 2013 budget.

"I must categorically state without mincing words that we, on our part, have discharged our responsibility.

"As such, the onus lies with all the public functionaries in their respective duty posts to ensure that the overall interest of the good people of Sokoto state is protected,’’ he said.

The governor assured that there would be accountability, transparency and adherence to due process in conducting government’s businesses.

Lawalli Zayyana, the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, said that the Assembly was modestly blessed with working tools and logistics to carry out its activities.

"Only a month back, about N220 million was expended on the procurement of committees’ vehicles to further strengthen oversight activities.

‘’Happily enough, about N1 billion has been voted in the 2013 budget for the comprehensive rehabilitation and repairs of the assembly complex,’’ Zayyana said.
