The Gombe State Governor, Inuwa Yahaya, has signed the revised N130.8billion 2020 budget into law.

The governor while signing the budget on Monday said the downward review of the budget was as a result of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic which has affected national and personal incomes.

Inuwa said despite the downwards review of the budget, the state government ensured that health, education, agriculture and other critical sectors remain the top priorities of the state.

The governor explained that the health sector’s budget, in particular, has been increased as a demonstration of the administration’s resolve to combat the virus and its socio-economic impact on the lives and means of livelihood of the people.
