Osun Assembly to Make Public Works, Transport Ministry More Functional
The Osun State House of Assembly says it will make Public Works and Transport Ministry more functional.
Chairman, House Committee on Public Works and Transport, Mr. Taofeek Badamasi stated this on during an interactive meeting with the officials of the ministry at the state House of Assembly, Osogbo.
He said the meeting was not to witch-hunt anybody but to collaborate efforts towards development of the State.
He directed the Ministry to submit documents on details of road contract awarded in the state.
In their various comments, members of the Committee requested for clarification of the Ministry in charge of the construction of Primary Health Care facilities across the state between the Ministry of Works and Health.
The Committee implored the ministry to work on dilapidated roads and filling of potholes on highways to reduce carnage and loss of lives on the roads.
Responding, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Public Works and Transport, Mr. Toke (m-d) Olaniyan explained that lack of funds was the major hindrance to the ministry in completing some projects.
He said, Oba Adesoji Aderemi East bye-pass, Osogbo Stadium fence and some Primary Health Center facilities were among the ongoing projects in the state.
