In fulfillment of his promise to accelerate the development of the State through repair of roads, primary schools and health care centers, the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has mandated leaders of the 20 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the State to fast-track the process of making life more meaningful for the people by choosing top three roads, a Primary Health Care Centre and a primary school per ward, for rehabilitation.
Governor Abiodun, who disclosed this at a meeting held with All Progressives Congress party (APC) members and leaders, in Abeokuta, said his government was determined to make roads in the State motorable, primary schools conducive for learning and healthcare centres, ”worthy of being called a primary health institution”.
“We are giving you just three days to choose the top three roads, one primary health care centre per ward and a primary school per ward in your local government that you want government to prioritize, if we don’t get yours, you will only have your local government leadership to blame”, he said.
On nomination of representatives for appointments, the Governor said the leadership of the 20 LGs should go back home and draw a list of 20 people that would represent them, saying, the process should not be done in a hurry, as they have a longer period to go back home and deliberate on their nominations.
“On the list of nominations per local government, it is twenty nominations per local government; I hope that you do the compilations in the shortest possible time. Hold consultative meetings and ensure that you come up with your top twenty names per local government, when you do that, please make sure that they come with their curriculum vitae as well, ” he said.
