Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has signed into law, a revised budget for the 2020 fiscal year.
The governor signed a reviewed sum of N127,333, 400,000 out of the earlier approved sum of N188, 549,559,140 for the year.
This contained in a statement on Wednesday by Mr Matawalle’s Special Adviser on Media and Communications, Zailani Bappa.
Speaking shortly after signing the document, Governor Matawalle said the review became necessary in view of the sudden economic down turn occasioned by the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic across the country.
According to him, the pandemic has affected not only Zamfara State, but the country and also the world at large.
He, therefore, promised to ensure that the revised budget serves as realistic guide for the progress and development of the state.
