Osagie stated that the governor announced the proposed supplementary budget after the weekly State Executive Council (EXCO) meeting held at Government House in Benin, an increase of about 10.79 per cent to the N150 billion budget for the year.

He quoted the governor as saying“the supplementary budget would be channelled to education, agriculture, among others, to build human capital and create wealth for people of the state.

“In the course of the 2018 fiscal year, President Muhammadu Buhari approved the disbursement of the final tranche of refunds from Paris/London club of borrowers to states and local governments.

“The state’s share of the refund amounts to N5 billion and Mr President further approved the application of a portion of this refund to clear the arrears of state government’s cash contribution for Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) Grants.
