From Heritage Odih, Abeokuta

The are strong indications that Dapo Abiodun will inaugurate at least 20 projects spread across the 20 Local Government Areas(LGAs) of Ogun State to mark his first year in office.

Indications to that effect came from assurance from  the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Afolabi Afuape, who disclosed  that each of the LGAs has embarked on various projects that would be beneficial to the rural people upon completion.

 Afuape expressed the hope that the projects would be inaugurated by the Governor in May, maintaning also that no white elephant project would be embarked upon.

The Commissioner  noted that the present administration encourages LGAs to carry out every function expected of them according to the constitution, while the State performs its supervisory role.

He added that the purpose of creating LGAs would be defeated  if the Caretaker Committee Chairmen were not allowed to carry out their functions.

 He also  pointed out that the review of Local Government laws would further give direction to operational guidelines for the third tier of government.

According to him, it would enhance  performance and ensure spread of dividends of democracy to the people.
