The Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin has reinstated the commitment of the State legislature to full performance of their oversight functions to ensure the success and full implementation of 2024 budget as presented to the House by Governor Seyi Makinde.
The Speaker stated this on Tuesday when Governor Seyi Makinde presented the 2024 budget proposal of #434,221,765,938,79 before the House.
The Speaker who assured the Governor of an accelerated passage of the 2024 budget proposal charged all Ministries, Departments and Agencies involved in the execution and implementation of the budget to redouble their efforts to ensure outstanding success.
” One of our key duties is to oversee the implementation of the 2024 budget. Parliamentary oversight is a crucial pillar for creating credibility in budgeting and in holding the State government accountable. I want to assure that as Executive members, we will monitor the execution of the 2024 budget “
Hon Ogundoyin commended the executive council for the 2024 budget proposal tagged ” Budget of Economic Recovery “, adding that this will help bring the State out of the current economic challenges which are having their tolls on the residents.
” There is no doubt in my mind that the year 2024 will be year of many opportunities and prosperities for our dear State with the Visionary Leadership style of the Governor and unalloyed cooperation and support of the Oyo State Legislature under my watch.
” Let me assure the Governor and people of Oyo State that, as a House, we are always ready to perform our Constitutional duty of Law making in particular and to also ensure that the Executive Arm of Government encounters no legal impediment in the performance of its functions for the overall welfare and wellbeing of the State and its residents.
” The Budget of Economic Recovery which has just been presented was packaged to facilitate the completion of all on-going projects and take care of other social services. May I again commend this administration for not concentrating the entire project in the State capital alone but torched other towns in the spirit of togetherness. I want at this occasion to urge His Excellency to fast track the completion of Ido- Eruwa Road and other on-going roads project across the State to bring more dividends of democracy to the people of Oyo State.
The vision is to put the State on the pedestal of socio-economic growth and development and eradicate poverty.” Oyo Speaker said
The Speaker said it was imperative for all the concerned stakeholders to attend budget defence for appropriate review, documentation and final passage.
