Court Nullifies N800bn 2024 Rivers Budget Passed By Five Lawmakers


0

A federal high court sitting in Abuja has nullified the passage of the N800 billion 2024 Rivers State budget by five lawmakers led by the former Speaker, Hon. Hon. Edison Ehie.

In the judgment delivered on Monday by the presiding Judge, James Omotoso, the court ordered the Rivers Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, to represent the budget to the legally constituted house of assembly under Martin Amaewhule, speaker of the assembly.

Recall that the budget was passed after the controversial demolition of the Assembly complex in December, 2023.

With dispatch, the Speaker and the other members passed the budget and the governor assented to it.

Governor Fubara after signing the budget, explained that the budget would help the administration’s road projects intended to link up some of the communities in the state.

“This budget shows that we have a plan for our dear State. One of the reasons why our budget is in the volume of N800 billion is that we intend, not just by desiring, to ensure that one key request of our dear State is met.

“God being our helper, we will commence immediately, by next year, flagging off the actual and main Trans-Kalabari road project phase 2.

“We have also, in our budget, provided to take care of the Elele-Omoku road project; a road that cuts through Ikwerre, Emohua, and Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government Areas.

“We are also taking that project as one of our cardinal achievements of this administration. We are not going back on it”, he said.
