BENUE PRESENTS N105.5BN BUDGET
The proposal is over 40 per cent higher than the 2011 budget which was N63.6 billion.
Christened Budget of Actualization of Growth and Development, Suswam said the budget was aimed at ensuring that all projects started by his administration were completed before the end of his tenure.
He said the key assumptions in the budget was that N59.9 billion would be generated from the Federal Account; N15.2 billion from Internally Generated Revenue, IGR, while N30.3 billion was expected to be generated from other sources.
Suswam said the budget would consolidate and address the increase in workers' salaries, occasioned by the new minimum wage increase in the country.
