    Osun programmes based on people’s demands, says Oyetola


    By Toba Adedeji, Osogbo

    Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has said his administration’s policies and programmes are based on the demands and needs of the residents.

    A statement by Olatunbosun Oyinloye, the Special Adviser on Civic Engagement to the Governor, said Oyetola made this known during a family meeting with the informal groups and farmers, organised by the Office of the Special Adviser on Civic Engagement, held at Ikire in Irewole Local Government.

    Oyetola said his administration believes in a government whose affair is run in tandem with the tenets and opinions of the masses, adding that people will continue to remain the critical stakeholder and driving force in the state’s governance system.

    The governor, represented by Oyintiloye, said the institution of civic engagement was a framework to engender participatory and inclusive governance through which popular feedback that would stimulate better policy outputs, which could have direct positive impact on the people, were brought to the policy formulation cycle.

    “It is no gainsaying that since the inception of our administration, we have been placing an absolute premium on the masses, as our policies and programmes in education, infrastructure, health, security and human capacity building, among others, are an offshoot of people’s demands and yearnings.

    “The life-changing policies and programmes made so far in this administration are not unconnected to our series of assessments of people’s needs through the platform of ‘thank you tour’, review of DFID Citizens Based Assessment Report and the ongoing civic engagement initiative taken to the doorstep of the people at the grassroots.

    “As a government, we will continue to adopt a system theory approach in our policy formulation, which in its cyclic form, will allow people give input into the system and get better policy outputs that can have positive impact on their lives,” he said.

    Commissioner for Finance Mr. Bola Oyebamiji, Chairman Osun State Universal Basic Education Board Israel Ajibola Famurewa and Director General Bureau of Social Services Mr. Richard Tinubu underscored the ingenious and astute leadership of Oyetola, which had brought about a tremendous development in all the sectors of the state economy.
