Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State has directed all the local government areas in the state to forward to his office the list of critical roads that require urgent repairs.
The governor gave the order yesterday at the meeting with the leadership of the local government areas (LGAs) and local council development areas (LCDAs).
He said that his administration would a work with the chairmen in the 68 LGAs and LCDAs to bring development to the grassroots.
The meeting was called at the instance of the supervisor of the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr. Adejare Adebisi.
Oyetola said that his administration remained committed to making life more meaningful for the people regardless of their socio-economic status.
The governor got a rousing applause when he announced that the councils would be funded by his administration to ensure the even development of the state.
He therefore urged the council bosses to key into the policies and programmes of his administration and reflect them in their conduct and activities.
Oyetola said that projects recommended by the LGAs would be supervised by the state government to ensure effective and efficient service delivery.
He said that the decision was aimed at extending the dividends of democracy to the grassroots as part of his administration’s cardinal points to bring succour to the people in the localities.
Oyetola charged the council chairmen to ensure the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in next year’s general election, saying that the decision remained the only way to sustain progressive projects at the state and national levels.
“As you know, a government is not totally formed without the legislature, thus it has become a task for everybody to work hard towards ensuring victory for all our candidates in the next general elections,” Oyetola said.
