fixes Wednesdays for exco meeting

Governor Ademola Adeleke on Friday finally bowed to pressure, held at the first state’s Executive Council meeting with his cabinet after fifty eight days of their inauguration.

Blaze Newz recalls that All Progressives Congress, APC, Osun chapter through a statement signed by it State Chairman, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal had during the week accused Governor Adeleke of being clueless over his refusal to hold executive council meeting.

But the governor during the meeting with his cabinet attributed the holding of the meeting by mid-September to the need for cabinet members to fully understand their ministries and agencies, expressing optimism that “we have been fully equipped to productively contribute at Council deliberations.

The Governor who noted with appreciation the eagerness and commitment of members to the success of his administration reminded the cabinet members of “a heavy burden on us”, adding “we cannot afford to be distracted”

The Number One Osun Citizen then proceeded to lay the ground rules for the cabinet members as the administration takes off in full steam:

“You are expected to take note of certain issues for us to achieve collective success. Projects and programmes you inherited should not be abandoned. I noticed a certain lay back attitude in the continuity of some of our 100 days projects and policies.

“You did not take over ministries and agencies without ongoing programmes. I did not expect any of you to start window shopping instead of pushing ahead with existing programmes. As much as I welcome innovations, we should not behave like the APC government that takes joy in abandoning inherited items.

“Secondly, I task us to uphold public finance regulations and due process. We must avoid activities that portray us as hawks seeking to serve self instead of the public. We are being watched.

“Let us be reminded that nothing is hidden within the public service process. I did not appoint any of you to breach the law. I will not protect anybody caught violating public service regulations”, Senator Adeleke admonished.

He directed that the foundation of policy innovations within the administration is the five-point agenda, instructing that cabinet members must build our governance agenda around the areas listed.

“In our submissions and memorandum to this council, let us adopt best practices. Due diligence in project conception and design is compulsory. Bogus project estimation can land sponsors in trouble. We must be above board as a rule of operation.

“We are here to serve the people. We must act and conduct ourselves in service of the people. That is how to justify the confidence Osun people overwhelmingly reposed in us”, the Governor rounded up his inaugural address.

The cabinet also unanimously agreed that every Wednesday of the week should be slated for the weekly Executive meeting of Osun State.
