As presented by the executive, the approved budget sees the highest sums allocated to public infrastructure and public works, education, health and agriculture.
Meanwhile, the Assembly will, on Friday, re-screen the rejected Caretaker Chairman for Ogbomoso South local government, Mr Oyeniyi Oyedokun.
