Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon. Adelani Baderinwa has charged the Network of Non-Governmental Organisations in the State of Osun (NETNOWS) to join hand with the government in its efforts at developing the state.

Hon. Baderinwa made the charge while hosting the Network of Non-Governmental Organisations in the State of Osun (NETNOWS) who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.

 

Information Commissioner said Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola is committed to developing the State notwithstanding the dwindling resources accruing to the state in the face of the downturn in the economy as a result of the fall in oil prices.

 

He explained that, both human and capital development of the state matters to the Governor, hence the total overhauling of the educational sector which has resulted in the building of the state of the art schools with modern facilities across the state.

 

Mr. Baderinwa urged the people to appreciate the road network, free meals for pupils in elementary schools, training and retraining of teachers, provision for elderly ones and lots more.

 

He therefore assured the NGO’s in the state of government support at all times therefore they should collaborate with the government to move the state forward.

 

Earlier, the President of Network of Non-Governmental Organisation in the State of Osun, Mr. Yinka Ibrahim, congratulated the Commissioner on his appointment and prayed for his success in office and sought collaboration of government in its effort at developing the state in all ways, saying they are more closer to the people than government.
