The Ogun House of Assembly on Thursday screened Gov. Dapo Abiodun’s Commissioner-nominee, Dapo Okubadejo , a former Commissioner for Finance and Chief Economic Adviser, Dapo Okubadejo.
Okubadejo re-assured that more strategic financial reforms were underway to aid the developmental policies of the present administration to consolidate on the ISEYA Mantra.
Okubabejo recounted the financial status of the State on the emergence of the present administration since 2019.
The former commissioner posited that its revenue drive had been greatly improved in spite the economic challenges occasioned by the shortfall in the price of petroleum in the global market, post covid challenges and unstable exchange rate amongst other indexes.
Appraising the financial ingenuity of the State Governor, Okubadejo added that more strategies would be put in place to give more operational strength to the Public Private Partnership (PPP) framework.
He added that the framework would further boost the confidence of stakeholders in the ability of government to deliver; thereby attracting more local and foreign investment opportunities to complement the booming industrial clusters.
In their remarks, the lawmakers applauded the nomination of the former Commissioner and incumbent Chief Economic Adviser.
The legislators described him as a round peg in a round hole, with the capabilities that would bring about consistent financial policies.
They admonished the nominee to justify the confidence reposed in him through improved commitment to quality service delivery that would ensure seamless financial policy implementation for the overall socio-economic development of the State.
