LG Caretaker Committees to Pursue Massive Grassroots Development – Commissioner

“Some local government secretariats in Osun state will be completely overhauled to make them conducive for both political office holders and civil servants to work comfortably”

Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Dosu Babatunde stated this while featuring on IMOLE AYO a sensitization programme promoting the activities of Governor Ademola Adeleke’s administration on OSBC Radio and Television channels

The weekly Yoruba simulcast programme is put in place by the office of the spokesperson to the governor, Mallam Olawale Rasheed to showcase the achievements of Governor Ademola Adeleke’s administration in Osun state

Hon Babatunde lamented the poor state of infrastructure in virtually all the local government secretariats, saying what he met on ground during his recent visits to Osogbo and Atakunmosa West local government secretariats was discouraging

The commissioner stated that the state government will encourage all the Local Governments to embark on developmental programmes that would bring succour to the people at the grassroots.

He said caretaker committees in the local governments will embark on massive road construction at the grassroots to enable farmers and rural dwellers bring their farm produce to markets in urban centres with ease, emphasising that the current administration would not paralyze the activities of the Local Government system in the State.

Noting that local government remains the level of government closest to the people, Hon Babatunde assured the people of the grassrootss that the caretaker chairmen would surely key into Governor Adeleke’s agenda which is to make life better for the people of the state.

He therefore solicited the support of the people of the state for the administration of Governor Ademola Adeleke adding that grassroots will feel the impact of the present administration more than ever before
