Salutes Oyetola For Returning Good Governance To The Grassroots

…As Phase 2 Grading Commences

The Chairman of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria, ALGON in Osun, Hon. Samuel Idowu Abiodun on Tuesday, commended all the Council Chairmen across the State for the timely and prompt delivery of the newly-graded roads in their domains.

Abiodun, who doubled as the Caretaker Chairman of Ifedayo Local Government Area, extolled his colleagues for the display of competence and capacity to genuinely redefine governance through the provision of quality infrastructural developments in their respective councils.

This is even as he saluted the Governor of the State, Adegboyega Oyetola for implementing policies and programmes targeted to strengthen the Local Government Administration, saying “indeed, good governance and democratic dividends have been returned to the grassroots”.

The Osun ALGON Chairman made the statements in a telephone conversation, on some of the socio-economic and infrastructural activities of the third tier of government in the State, most importantly on the quality of job done by his colleagues, which is in compliance with the resolution to grade critical roads across their councils.

Recall that the ALGON Chairman had few months ago announced the approval of the State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola to embark on massive rural roads grading.

According to the Governor’s approval, the Council Chairmen were expected to grade over 345 rural roads across the 69 Local Government Areas, Local Council Development Areas, Area Councils, and Adminstrative Offices in the state.

Abiodun, while commenting on the successful completion of the roads grading exercise, expressed satisfaction on the quality of service delivered by the council bosses across the State.

He said the present Administration has once again proved its capacity to bring good governance to the people’s doorsteps regardless of location or place, as manifested in the successful implementation of myriads of welfarist programmes executed so far since the inception.

He reiterated their commitment and loyalty to the Oyetola led Administration just as he assured the residents particularly the locals more dividends of democracy.

“It is a thing of joy that many of our colleagues have completed the grading of the identified critical roads in their respective councils.

“I can recollect vividly that when we commenced the massive grading, it was like a huge task on us in view of the enormity of our people’s expectations as to the need to make most of the rural roads passable for the local dwellers.

“But I thank God that today, we have done so much in this regards as many of the rural roads have been thoroughly graded and opened up for the use of our people particularly the farmers whose source of livelihood depends on the transportation of their farm produce from rural to urban centres.

“The completion of these roads would in no measure help to facilitate more development, improve on the local and State economy, and by extension make lives more comfortable for the citizens particularly those at the grassroots.

“Like I have always said, we remain resolute to complement the efforts of the state government led by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola so as to collectively build a virile and prosperous economy for the State, and transform the lives of the people”, Abiodun added.
