Ten days after the state House of Assembly passed the N208.064 billion 2024 budget for Gombe State, Governor Inuwa Yahaya signed it on Friday.

In a ceremony observed by Abubakar Luggerewo, Speaker of the Gombe State House of Assembly, and other high-ranking government officials, Yahaya inked the 2024 Appropriation Bill in Gombe.

During his speech, Yahaya praised the cooperation between the state’s executive and legislative branches, noting that it had led to efficient budget processes.

According to him, the state’s budget was established with the people’s best interests in mind, which is why 58% of the entire budget went toward capital spending and 42% toward recurrent expenditure.

The property has been rather accommodating throughout the years, which is a relief. Thank God Almighty, every year from 2020 through 2024, the House has never let us down by passing the budget. That includes 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, and now 2024. We are deeply appreciative of the help.

It is on this principle that the legislative, executive, and judicial branches work together. We will keep it up so that we can accomplish what our ancestors fought for.

According to the governor, “the ratio of capital to recurrent is always bigger,” adding that 2024 would receive 58%. He emphasized that the people benefit from their continued cooperation and promised to remain firm.

While praising the budget as “very good,” Luggerewo earlier praised Gov. Yahaya for what he claimed was the norm throughout his administration: prioritizing capital expenditure over recurring.

Legislators boosted the budget by N300 million, the speaker explained, because they wanted to make sure the people would benefit.
