Governor ‘Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has declared that his administration will within the next six to eight weeks launch a Task Force to implement the ban on open grazing in the state.
He added that the government will continually engage the people of the state in the budget process, adding that a government team that will collate data for the next budget will soon embark on consultations with the communities.
“And concerning all the requests on road construction, we will plan ahead. Some of these projects will be included in the budget that we are going to come up with next year because we have to work with the fund in government coffers.
“When you engage with our team on budget, which will be going round very soon, make sure some of these roads are mentioned and I give you my promise that we will do all we can to ensure the right things are done.”
Earlier, the state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr. Wasiu Olatubosun said that the Town Hall meeting was held to gauge the feelings of the people of Oyo State on the performance of the administration and also see what other areas it would need to address.
