Osun state government says it has mapped out plans to speedily entrench the development of Information and Communication Technology in order to put the state on a higher pedestal for digital economy, agriculture and telemedicine.

Coordinating Director, Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology, Mr. Murtala Adekilekun stated this while addressing participants at series of stakeholders consultation and validation workshops on State ICT and Innovation Policy.

The Coordinating Director in a statement by Governor’s Spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed further explained the commitment of Governor Adeleke to positively turn the State around in all ramifications geared towards making Osun to be at par with the best global practices


Mr. Adekilekun noted that by the time the current administration would mark 100 Days in Office, the State would have achieved many developmental goals in the areas of ICT in line with the Technology Innovation agenda of the government.

He described the convergence of experts and stakeholders drawn from Governmental and Non-governmental Organizations and members of the academia from higher institutions of learning to brainstorm on how best to come up with the State ICT and Innovation Policies as a better way of tapping from the pool of knowledge of experts and stakeholders.

Participants who were drawn from private and public universities in the state, Federal and State technological institutes operating within the state and NGOs among others described the programme as timely and worthwhile just as they lauded the current administration in Osun State.
