Ogun State Government says leaders of Community Development Councils and Associations will henceforth be involved in decision making, especially on the siting and execution of projects in their various communities.

The state Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun stated this at Oke-Mosan Abeokuta in an interactive meeting with leaders of Community Development Councils and Associations in all the 20 Local Government Areas of the state.

Governor Abiodun explained that as part of efforts to further open up the state for more investments and social activities, the Ogun Light-up Project that would ensure constant power supply would soon commence in Abeokuta and other parts of the state.

While approving the release of grants to Community Development Councils, CDCs, Governor Abiodun announced that a 7-man Caretaker Committee would be set up to take charge of the CDCs.

The governor said his administration would also hand over transformers to CDCs and CDAs’ chairmen, which would be distributed to communities, adding that, the meeting would be held on a regular basis to interface on issues affecting the well-being of the people.

Responding, the Chairman, Community Development Council, Ogun Central, Alhaji Waheed Adekunle, urged the governor to look into the poor state of the Social Development College, Shasha, Ilisan-Remo, with a view to putting it in proper shape.

Alhaji Adekunle also urged the state government to extend its empowerment programmes to youths in the communities to give them a sense of belonging.
