Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State on Tuesday wept while presenting the 2023 budget proposal of N288,633,257,963 to the state House of Assembly.
The governor told the House that the budget was meant to complete ongoing projects and initiate new ones that would be completed within the tenure of his administration in the state.
But, while delivering the budget proposal, the governor lost emotions as he briefly wept, saying this is the final time he would present budget to the House.
He said, “As you are all aware, this is the last time I will stand here before the honourable members of the Katsina House of Assembly to present the draft budget for the Katsina State Government, so, I could be emotional in the course of presentation.”
The governor, who first reviewed the 2022 budget, said its performance was above average.
