Lagos state governor, Ambode fails to present Lagos 2019 budget

The much- awaited presentation of Lagos State 2019 budget on Monday at the state House of Assembly by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode failed to hold.

Although the governor’s advance team arrived at the Assembly around few minutes to 3pm raising hope Ambode was on his way for the presentation, the team left the Assembly premises around 4pm before plenary even commenced with the lawmaker said to be in a parliamentary session.

Sources at the Assembly hinted the governor was not there to present budget but hold have a meeting with the lawmakers, which was why the governor’s press crew and advance team were directed back to their beats.

When the lawmakers eventually held plenary, nothing about the budget or the governor’s visit came up for discussion.

However, sources close to the governor said Ambode informed the lawmakers since Friday that he would be coming to present the budget on Monday following successful resolution of the differences between the two arms, which hampered the presentation last year.

The source said the lawmakers were engrossed in a meeting to iron out some differences among themselves.
