The data collected will help us plan for our recurrent expenditure better, & any savings made will enable us to meet other needs for the benefit of our people in Oyo State. I implored the consultants to do a thorough job & treat every worker with dignity as they execute the task.

This afternoon, I flagged off the Oyo State public and civil servants workers’ verification programme. We want to ensure we know everyone employed by the state, and that everyone receiving emoluments from the state’s coffers is entitled to do so.

I appealed to the youths in that area to cooperate with the contractors as they execute the project, and that the contractors should employ our young people for the project where possible.

Therefore, it's important that the road is well constructed & lasts a minimum of 10 years. Changes were made to the original design of the project such as; provision of adequate drainage facilities & an increase in the thickness of asphalt from 40mm to 50mm for better durability.

This road is crucial to the economy of Oyo State; agricultural produce and solid minerals from Oke-Ogun will be conveyed on this road to other parts of Oyo State including the dry port at Olorisaoko for export within and outside Nigeria.

Also, just recently, we increased the education budget, from about 3% to 10% of the total annual state budget in the revised 2019 budget. Our goal is to make education 15 to 20% of Oyo State’s total budgetary allocation in keeping with UNESCO recommendations.

Here in Oyo State, we believe that an educated population is an asset to the nation. Education begets development and development brings about real change and transformation. Education is one of those areas where we put away all partisanship and work for the common good.
