A gubernatorial aspirant in Oyo State, Prof. Adeolu Akande has said he would create Ministry Of Ibadan Capital Development to ensure rapid transformation of the state capital, Ibadan if elected the governor in 2019.
He said the proposed Ministry of Ibadan Capital Development would be created at no additional cost to the state but will ensure that government activities for the development of Ibadan and welfare of its residents are better coordinated for optimal service delivery and accelerated development.
According to him, the system that is in place now is “Sectorally disjointed” and cannot develop the capital city at the rate he wants for Ibadan which he says is the pride of all indigenes of Oyo State.
He said all government ministries, departments and agencies take actions that impact on the welfare of residents and development of the city without anyone having a broad view that will guarantee accelerated and optimal growth.
“The Ministry of Education is executing projects different from the Ministry of Health which is also doing something different from every other ministry,” he said.
The ministries, he explained work in silos as regards the development of Ibadan, whereas a ministry of Ibadan capital development will coordinate all these silos to deliver accelerated development.
He added that the initiative would not be to the detriment of other parts of the state, because apart from the fact that there is hardly any community of Oyo State that does not have full representation in the four million population of Ibadan, Ibadan is the epicentre of the development of Oyo State and the development of Ibadan will yield benefits to all parts of the state.
He said the ministry will also work on the integration of other towns to the delivery of goods and services that will take advantage of the population of Ibadan for the creation of wealth for people who live in those towns and communities.
