Christened budget of “Wealth consolidation and the people’s budget,’’ when it was presented to the Imo State House of Assembly on December 17, 2021, Governor Uzodimma urged the lawmakers to expedite action on the bill so that the impact of its implementation could be felt immediately by the people.

Performing the ceremony at the new Executuve Chambers Government House, Owerri, Thursday, Governor Uzodimma described the speedy passage of the budget as “a prove that the Imo State House of Assembly members are not only prudent with time but are up and doing in their responsibility of law making.”

Again, he reminded Imo people that the 2022 budget appropriation signed into law was meant to bring rapid development to the state.

His words: “I hope that having been signed into law the expected impact will be realized in a record’s time.”

Uzodimma thanked the Speaker, Kennedy Ibe, his colleagues in the Imo State House of Assembly and all members of the 3R Government for their continued support and promised to implement the budget to the letter in the interest of the people.

On how far the budget will be realized, Governor Uzodimma assured that ‘’every law is meant to be implemented and obeyed’’ and that he would ensure that the budget was implemented to the letter so long as the expected financial resources were available.

Presenting the Bill before the Governor for assent, Ibeh said that he was excited to bring the 2022 Appropriation Bill before him for assent having undergone all the legislative processes as a bill.

He commended the doggedness of his colleagues who worked day and night to realise the early passage of the budget into law.
