Wife of Oyo State Governor, Mrs. Tamunominini Makinde, has re-affirmed her commitment to the well-being of people living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS).

She urged world leaders to join hands with state governments to promote policies geared towards the victims’ total healthiness.

Makinde’s wife, who chairs Oyo State Agency for the Control of AIDS (OYSACA), gave the charge, yesterday, during a rally to mark the 2021 World AIDS Day held at Agodi, Ibadan.

The governor’s wife, who was represented by the Executive Secretary, OYSACA, Dr. Lanre Abass, noted that it is high time political and world leaders keep to their promises.

She opined that global inequalities affect everyone irrespective of ethnic group and geographical location, adding that without bold actions, the world risks missing the target to end AIDS by 2030 as highlighted by the United Nations on AIDS (UNAIDS).

MEANWHILE, the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has approved a new list of appointees at local councils after holding a meeting that lasted for hours with the leaders from each of the 33 local councils.
 
The new list was said to have accommodated more coalition members.
 
This is coming after about three weeks that the governor ordered the withdrawal of the first list owing to irregularities.

 
The new list of secretaries, supervisory councillors and special assistants for the 33 local councils and 35 Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) in Oyo State is now said to be more comprehensive and accommodates several tendencies.

The state’s Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters, Chief Bayo Lawal, released the new list to chairmen of the councils and LCDAs.
