Osun State governor-elect, Adeleke Promise To Continue With Local gov Reforms

Osun State governor-elect, Senator Adeleke have promised his administration would restore accountability and openness in local government operations in order to prevent excesses and corruption.

According to Dailypost, the governor-elect, will considerably improve the well-being and living conditions of the people of the state at the grassroots level.

In his words, “I want to commend the various sub-committees for the fantastic job. Let me restate here that local government reforms are so dear to my heart because of so many reasons. First, a strong local government system is the best way to ensure grassroots development. Two, poverty alleviation is largely a local matter. So local governments with required resources will speed up prosperity. More importantly, competition will become a new way among the council chairman.

I remember those days when council chairmen competed for commissioning of projects. Locally elected leaders built roads, developed agriculture, markets and transport terminals. I look forward to the return of that era when council chairmen will fill the Governor’s schedule with project commissioning.

“We will not support autonomy that encourages defrauding the people. We will ensure that resources and responsibilities devolved to the local governments in line with the Constitution are handled in compliance with due process and anti-corruption laws,” the governor-elect stated.
