Stop running Rivers State without approved budget – APC warns Gov Fubara

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has cautioned Governor Sim Fubara against running the state without a duly approved budget by the state House of Assembly.

The Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the party in the state, Tony Okocha, spoke in Port Harcourt while visiting the Speaker of the State Assembly in the company of his committee.

Okocha called on Fubara to immediately re present the 2024 budget to the Assembly while urging the executive arm to shelve their unnecessary delay in presenting the 2024 Budget estimate to the Assembly.

According to Okocha: “We frown at the governor’s impunity in running Rivers State without a Budget. However, we remind him that it will amount to gross financial misconduct for him to continue in this dangerous voyage.

“This might sound unpalatable and annoying. As a party in opposition in the state, we have applied and and received data on the sum received by the Rivers state government from Federal Allocation.

“From June 22, 2023 to November 2023. It is our finding that a whooping sum of N144,291,667,791.01 has been received from Federal Allocation under FAAC.

“This amount is beside internally generated Revenue of the state which is put on conservatively N10-billion every month. We regret that this humongous amount has not been transmitted to action in any way in terms of development in the state.”
