The bill was signed into law on Wednesday after it was passed by the lawmakers on Tuesday.
It was jacked up by the lawmakers from its earlier 93 billion Naira to 94.4 billion Naira, with the lawmakers saying the adjustment was made to accommodate other key sectors of the state.
The signing into law of the 2017 Ekiti State Appropriation Bill by Governor Ayodele Fayose is coming barely one week after it was presented to the State House of Assembly.
After signing the bill into law, the governor said: “I assure the people of the implementation and to offset some of the ongoing project in the state”.
The Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Kola Oluwawole and other members of the House pledged their continued support for the Governor, saying they will defile all intimidation from the Federal Government.
Ekiti state is the first state in the country to sign into law the 2017 Appropriation Bill.
