Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State, has just finished meeting chairmen and sole administrators of local government and local council development areas in the state.

This is coming four days after sacked chairmen of LGAs and LCDAs took over at the various council headquarters in the state.



OYOINSIGHT.COM recalls that Makinde had sacked chairmen elected by his predecessor few hours after he was inaugurated.

Writing on his verified twitter account, Makinde wrote “This afternoon, we met with Local Government and Local Community Development Areas Caretaker Chairpersons. I urged them to remain focused on the task at hand; to decide on projects for each of our LGAs and LCDAs and execute them for the benefit of our people.”

He added: “We have been able to accumulate some money for the local governments because since we came in and owing to the crisis too, we have not been able to judiciously utilize the money meant for that tier of government. But now that you are on the seat, we will all pull together, decide on the project for each of our local government and local council development areas. And once we have agreed, go ahead and execute these projects because the people are waiting for us. They want to see developments at the grassroots and you are all the ones to make it happen.

“I want to once again congratulate you and let you know that there are several people that are qualified to sit in that position. So, you have to demonstrate the capacity to hold that position. On that note, remain strong, steadfast and dedicated and deliver dividends of democracy to our people.”
