Osun LGAs operate without interference – Oyetola

Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, says his administration has provided the local government councils in the state freedom to operate without interference.

Oyetola said it was unfair for any governor to prevent the people at the grass roots from taking decisions about what they want, in terms of human, capital and infrastructure development.

He spoke when he received a delegation of the Local Government Project Monitoring Team from the office of the Secretary to the Governor of the Federation at the Government House in Osogbo, the state capital.

The governor described local government councils as a critical arm that should work to deliver development to the people, according to a statement on Friday.

He said, “I believe in the functionality of local government administration. That is why we have given all the local governments and the local council development areas the independence to operate.

“To me, it is unfair for any governor not to allow people at the local government to decide what they want. We believe in transparency, accountability and probity; that is why our administration has ensured that the resources of the local governments are not interfered with.

“We have given our councils free hand to operate and decide their affairs. We don’t toy with the administration of our local government because we believe so much in development.”
