Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke will today (Thursday) submit the 2024 budget proposal to the State House of Assembly.
A statement by the spokesperson to the Governor, Mallam Rasheed Olawale, noted that the Governor had earlier written the House Speaker, Hon Adewale Egbedun on the proposed submission as statutorily stipulated by extant laws.
The Governor according to the statement is to be accompanied by members of the State Executive Council and the leadership of the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).
