Abiodun says stakeholders’ contribution key to sustainable development
Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has said sustainable development is achievable, if the people initiate development plan.
Speaking at the Budget 2020 town hall meeting for Ogun East Senatorial District, Abiodun added that such development plan and projects would be easier to sustain for the state’s continued development as the people would take ownership of the process and projects.
He said: “This town hall meeting will help us to achieve a strategic allocation of resources towards projects and programmes that will have optimum impact on the people. It is, therefore, a symbolic representation of our administration’s commitment towards inclusiveness, people-centred and participatory governance.”
He stated that the dream to see the state attain greater heights would require the inputs of all, promising that the town hall meeting would be held in the other two senatorial districts of the state.
“As a responsible, responsive and focussed administration, we understand the stress and how it feels not to be part of the decision making. Such situation puts, at a more disadvantage, our women and youths, who form the higher percentage of our population and a vital segment for any sustainable development plan,” he said.
