This followed the adoption of a motion by the Speaker of the Assembly, Mr. Martin Amaewhu during the plenary held at the legislators’ quarters in Port Harcourt.

In his presentation, Amaewhu expressed concern that the House was yet to receive the budget and the MTEF from the executive.

He charged the governor to present the documents for approval in line with the 1999 Constitution.

Fubara presented a 2024 budget estimate of N800 billion to a four-member House of Assembly for approval on December 13, 2023.

He signed the budget on December 14, just 24 hours after it was presented to the lawmakers.

However, under the peace accord facilitated by President Bola Tinubu, the governor was expected to re-present the budget as part of the conditions to end the political crisis in the state.
