It was drama at the Imo State Assembly Complex Tuesday as the Law Makers deserted the complex despite advertised budget presentation by Gov.Rochas Okorocha.
The situation threw Imolites,Civil Society Activists and Journalists who throng the venue earlier to witness the presentation of 2018 budget estimate by the Rescue government into confusion.
It was difficult getting explanations from the authorities initially as they feigned ignorance of logjam between the Executive and the Law Makers but, a source points to disagreements as some Law Makers are protesting over non consideration of their constituencies in project allocation especially as the 2019 electoral year draws closer.
Meanwhile, the Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker,Imo State House of Assembly, Mr Marcel Ekwezuo while regretting the inconveniences said it was called off due to noticed discrepancies by the Legislators in budget presentation speech. The issues as discovered are presently receiving attention as the Speaker, Rt.Hon Acho Ihim,and the Law Makers desire a more populace oriented budget serving the interest of Imolites and residents in the State.
