By Femi Makinde, Ado-Ekiti

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Segun Oni, has signed the 2010 appropriation bill into law with an assurance that his administration would implement what is contained in the budget totalling N69.930bn.

This was contained in a statement made available to our correspondent in Ado-Ekiti on Monday.

Speaking at the ceremony, Oni was quoted to have restated the commitment of his administration to better the lot of the people of the state this fiscal year.

He commended the members of the State House of Assembly, and staff of the budget department for the passage of the budget.

Oni said, “I can see cooperation, patriotism and genuineness of purpose on the part of members of the State House of Assembly. The various Ministries, Departments and Agencies were really grilled during the budget defence at the house. The various House committees sat diligently as they scrutinised the budget before coming up with this first class budget.

“With the level of patriotism displayed by the House of Assembly and our brilliant staff in the Budget Department, I can say emphatically that Ekiti is lucky, Ekiti is blessed, Ekiti is not only viable but is also destined for the top.”

He noted that policies of his administration in the last two years had continued to yield positive result as indices recently released by the United Nations Development Programme and the Federal Ministry of Heath indicated that the state had one of the best heath care policies.
