Amosun promises Ogun councillors cars, furniture allowance, others

Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has approved the purchase of new cars and furniture allowance, effective from July, to all the 236 councillors in the state.
He has also asked them to come up with a proposal for a capital project to be executed in each ward.
Amosun, while addressing all the councillors in the state, including the 15 non-APC members, said he was very concerned about the people in the grassroots, whom he described as the bedrock for a thriving governance.
He challenged the councillors to see themselves as ambassadors of the people at the grassroots and charged them to have clear vision for their wards.
He said he is not unmindful of the fact that the organ of government at the grassroots must have necessary incentives, tools and enabling environment to achieve meaningful development, adding that this explains the governments gesture.
The governor charged them to replicate the rebuilding mission of his administration in their respective wards and explained that the proposed projects would be funded by the government and executed by the councillors.
“Governance, for me, is not all about a party or just the governor but ensuring that we break through political barriers to meet the needs of our people”.
Hon. Akinsola Idris, majority leader of Ward 8, Abeokuta North was grateful to the governor for the good gesture which he said was unprecedented, assuring that they are now poised to take the rebuilding mission to the grassroots.
Also, Hon. Akeem Sodunke from Ota said the governor had indeed formed an all- inclusive government that was void of discrimination.
According to him, no government in the state has ever given the welfare of the people at grassroots priority as the Amosun administration.
