He said the assembly, after considering various factors such as insecurity, resolved to increase the size of the budget to N135.428 bn against the former figure of N135.326 bn.

According to him, the size of the budget is increased by N101.5 million.

Yari, who lauded the lawmakers over speedy passage of the budget, said it was presented late due to some challenges that affected the state government. (NAN)
