Dickson signs 2017 appropriation bill into law

The Bayelsa State Governor, Mr. Seriake Dickson, has signed the 2017 appropriation bill of N243.2b and the Educational Development Trust Fund (EDTF) Amendment bill into law.

A Government House statement issued on Monday said Dickson while assenting to the bills noted that the budget tagged: “Budget of Repositioning For Consolidation” was designed to complete various on-going projects in the state.

Dickson said the government appropriated N111billion for capital projects and called on Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to ensure strict implementation of the budget.

He asked the ministries to fast-track the processes of awarding contracts, adding that his administration was committed to completing most of the projects and programmes this year.

Dickson, however, said that recurrent expenditures such as salaries, pensions, gratuities and overhead would gulp the remaining balance of the budget.

He commended workers in the state for their understanding and patience, saying the government was working out modalities on the payment of the backlog of salary arrears owed workers.
