Ogun lawmakers task LG chairmen on grassroot development


Ogun State House of Assembly has challenged the Chairmen of Transition Committee in the Local Government Councils in the State to complement the Prince Dapo Abiodun led -administration at the grassroot level by implementing programmes that will have direct positive impacts on the lives of the people.

The House Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs led by Hon. Akeem Balogun, gave the charge while appraising the budget performance of Ogun Waterside and that of Ijebu East Local Government Councils at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

He sought the need to further put in place structures that would serve as revenue generating points for the local government councils, stressing the need to further involve strategies for the development of their various Local Government Council Areas.

Earlier in their presentations, the Chairman, Ijebu East Local Government, Mr. Callistus Falujo, noted that the local government council had the sum of N1.086bn as total receipt between January and June, 2020; while the Acting Chairman, Ogun Waterside Local Government Council, Mr. Otuyiga Tajudeen, disclosed that a sum of N683.2m was the total receipt for the period.

In thesame vein, the State House of Assembly’s Committee on Health led by Hon. Adegoke Adeyanju, has urged the Management of the State Hospital, Ilaro to put in place measures towards an immediate expansion of the facility with neccessary equipment to meet the volume of patronage by residents of the various towns and communities patronising it.

Adeyanju gave the advice while leading other members of the Committee to appraise the budget performance of the State Hospitals, Ilaro and Ota at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

Commending the Prince Dapo Abiodun led administration for declaring a state of emergency in the Health sector on assumption of office, the lawmaker tasked the Managements of the facilities to further boost quality service delivery for the overall health well-being of the people.

In his presentation, the Chief Medical Director, State Hospital, Ilaro, Dr. Yusuf Abdul-Wahab, said the facility generated the sum of N21m into government’s coffers between January and June, while his counterpart in Ota, said a total of N106.4m was generated as revenue for the same period.
