The governor-elect of Ogun state, Mr. Dapo Abiodun, has inaugurated a 23-man Economic Transition Committee, saying government is a continuum, and promising to complete abandoned projects after the exit of the current governor, Senator Ibikunde Amosun.
Abiodun inaugurated members of the Economic Transition Committee and those of the Work Groups in Ogere-Remo area of the state, today Wednesday. According to the governor, “Government is a continuum. Therefore, the next Administration will continue the implementation of the ongoing projects that have a clear line of sight to the upliftment of Ogun State and benefits to the people.” he said.
Continuing, he said, “I hope that the incumbent government will provide to us timeously accurate information on all the ongoing projects in the state and the general state of affairs of our common patrimony”.
Report from Vanguard has revealed that the Economic Transition Committee comprised 23 members while the Work Groups have 235 persons totalling 258.
The reports quoted Abiodun as saying that, the inauguration of the committees is an attestation to his promise to run an all-inclusive government. He said the gesture is to “elaborate on the (Abiodun’s) campaign manifesto, identify and distil the pressing needs of the state and our people, recommend specific programmes and policies and develop a measurable and realistic roadmap, including identifying low hanging fruits, for implementation.”
They were also charged to identify means of funding the new government when it is inaugurated on May 29. “There is no gainsaying that funding will be a major constraint, hence our recognition of public-private partnership as a veritable tool for funding in a manner that keeps the interest of the state paramount while delivering significant value to all the stakeholders. Therefore, the Work Group on Finance is enjoined to identify creative means of funding to support the realisation of the governance agenda.”IMPORTANT!: Follow us on Instagram @InfoGuideNigeria
