The bill, which was titled, “Enugu State of Nigeria Amendment (revised) Appropriation Bill, 2015″ as moved by the leader of the House, Hon. Ikechukwu Ezeugwu, is to make way for internal re-allocation of resources in the existing budget of over N96.735 billion as passed by the previous Assembly to enable the government embark on important development projects in the state.
