Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun on Tuesday Inaugurated another batch of Boards, Comissions and Agencies members into several Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) with a charge to be agents of positive change to translate collective dreams into reality.
Governor Abiodun who made this charge at the June 12 Cultural Center Kuto, Abeokuta, also called on the newly inaugurated members to make selfless service to the state as their watch word.
“Let me warn that we will not tolerate any act that is not in tandem with overall vision of our Administration. But instead, you must make selfless service key to translating our collective dreams to reality. Like Caesar’s wife, you must live above board.
“You must be agents of positive change as well as contributing significant values in your respective MDAs” Abiodun stated.
Prince Abiodun further assured newly inaugurated members that his administration is going to put in place, some performance metrics to measure the performances of each of Agencies and determine in what specific ways they are contributing.
” Your deserved and timely appointment is coming at the time the Budget for year 2021 is being prepared. As you are all aware, we have also adopted as usual a bottom approach to development. We have held Town Hall Meetings across the three Senatorial Districts across our dear State in which the stakeholders have made significant contributions to what they will like to see in the Budget.
“Some of this Budget implementation will depend largely on some MDAs in order to bring to life the aspirations and vision of our people.
“Therefore, you will also have the opportunity to work together in your respective MDAs in order to contribute and fashion out their inputs.
“Once again, I thank the people of Ogun State for the continued support, collaboration and prayers. Let me say once again that, we will never take you for granted. I also expect you to continue giving us the full support as we move forward into the second full fiscal year of our Administration. In the next few days, I will be presenting the Appropriation Bill for 2021 to the House of Assembly and I have no doubt in my mind that the process of signing it into law will be swift.
“The people of Ogun State should look forward to a new year increasing personal fulfillment and continued development of our dear State”Governor Abiodun stressed.
He however enjoined all the appointees to roll up their sleeves and join hands in order to make today a solid foundation on which they can build the future of Ogun dear State.
