Oyo State cuts Assembly’s allocation by 30%
Wale Oyewale, Ibadan
A suggestion that emerged from Oyo state is that the State lawmakers have arranged to a 30 each cent reduction in their particular monthly allocations effective April over coronavirus-induced financial problems.
The Leader, Oyo House Committee on Information and Media, Kazeem Olayanju, on Saturday mentioned, “Our income has recently been slashed by 30 each cent as our help towards COVID-19. The chief of the servants brought the idea and that we accepted the 35 per cent deduction. ”
The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Taiwo Adisa, said on Sunday, “The state is not considering cutting its budget inside the state, but to control its Internally Generated Earnings (IGR) to shore up their income base. We assume a greater increase in IGR routines that bring in more funds.
Meanwhile, the Oyo Express Government disclosed on Saturday that it has dismissed two more COVID-19 sufferers after testing negative 2 times.
The Oyo State chief of the staff, Seyi Makinde, said this specifically on his official Twitter handle on Sunday.
