According to the governor, the state would set aside N67.4 billion, or 3.98 percent of the 2023 budget, to implement the government’s social housing programme and provide facilities throughout the state.

The governor stated that the state would maintain its strategic investment in human capital and channel money to build more infrastructure in order to keep its economy growing beyond next year. In 2023, the state government’s top priorities will be health and the environment, education, and the economy.

Sanwo-Olu suggested allocating N153.5 billion to education next year, or 9.07 percent of total budget estimates, in order to consolidate the sector’s gains during the previous years. He stated that prior investments in education had resulted in a record-high performance of 82% in the 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.

This compares to 39% in 2019, when the administration took office.

The governor has set aside N339 billion in capital (20.06 percent) for infrastructure in several sectors next year, while allocating N191 billion, or 11.29 percent, to health and the environment.

According to Sanwo-Olu, the fiscal proposal dubbed “Budget of Continuity” provided his administration with the opportunity to consolidate on its development advances since inception while also satisfying people’ desires.

He stated that the government would not only “aggressively” focus on completing ongoing projects next year, but would also extend intervention programmes and enhance social support to citizens and their means of subsistence.

He said: โ€œThe Year 2023 Appropriation Bill, which will be the final budget of our administration before the 2023 general elections, expresses our unwavering determination to keep serving the people of Lagos through our development agenda, while we uphold the trust and faith reposed in us by the people since 2019. As we return to the campaign trail to seek the mandate of Lagosians for another four years, we have resolved to continue our audacious interventions in every sector of the economy. Jamb Resultย
