Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has sent a bill to the State House of Assembly, seeking a review of the already signed 2015 appropriation budget.

Oshiomhole had last year signed the approved N159.3billion appropriation bill into law with a promise to ensure set out objectives in the budget are realised.

In a letter to the lawmakers and signed by Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Julius Ihonvbere, Oshiomhole said the need to review the budget was because of dwindling revenue and fall in crude oil price.

The governor is seeking a downward review of the budget to N127billion.

The lawmakers who would be having their last sitting on Thursday suspended some sections of the House Rules to enable them pass the reviewed budget.
