KANO, August 19, (THEWILL) - The Speaker of Kano State House of Assembly Honourable Abdul-Azeez Garba Gafasa, has announced the passage of the 2010 Amendment Appropriation Bill of N18, 026,919,365 into law.

Abdul-Azeez Gafasa said the Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation, Honourable Muhammad Idris Ayiye, presented the report before the House, explaining that, 98 per cent of the amount would be generated internally and is within the approved 2010 budget.

According to him, Honourable Ayiye recommended that the sum of N393, 140,343 being the only money outside the budget be approved as contra entries to Dala Building Society and Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Specialist Hospital amounting to N342, 950,343 and N50, 190,000 respectively.

The Bill was titled: "Amendment rather than Supplementary’’ due to the fact that only two per cent of the amount is externally sourced within the approved budget.

However, the Chairman of the committee further recommended that, N100, 000,000 should be sourced from contingency funds to bankroll the activities of the state House of Assembly as contained in the amendment bill undertaken by the present administration in the state.

The lawmakers unanimously agreed to it and Speaker Abdul`Aziz Garba Gafasa announced the passage of the bill into law.
