The Economic Transition Committee of Ogun State has been tasked to urgently rescue the gateway state from what is being described as the shackles of misappropriation/mismanagement of resources and misplaced priorities caused by the present administration in the state.
A statement issued by the Director of Communications & Strategy of Noimot Salako-Oyedele (NSO) Frontiers, Muhammed Mustapha, stated that the organisation implored the team which is raised, according to it, from among seasoned professionals of diverse fields to justify the confidence and trust reposed in them by the residents of Ogun State via the governor-elect.
The organisation disclosed that having dispassionately perused composition of the economic transition team being put together by the governor-elect, its earlier belief and conviction that Ogun State would undergo rapid paradigm shift in terms socio-economic and political transformation to join league of buoyant states in Nigeria has been reinforced.
The statement also appreciated the governor-elect and his deputy for honouring NSO Frontiers by appointing Ismail Oluwole Obisanya (being its secretary/youth leader) as member of one of the work groups (education, youth & sports) of the economic transition team, stressing that the organisation would proffer necessary supports for its member specifically and the entire team by extension towards delivering on their terms of reference and desired results for common good of the state.
“This is to express our profound gratitude to the Governor-elect of Ogun State, Prince (Dr) Dapo Abiodun, MFR and his deputy, Engr (Mrs) Noimot Salako-Oyedele, for honouring NSO Frontiers by appointing one of us, Ismail Oluwole Obisanya, as member of the Education, Youth & Sports, a work group of the Economic Transition Committee of Ogun State.
“We shall proffer necessary supports for our member specifically and the entire economic team by extension towards delivering on their terms of reference and desired results for common good of the state.
“We hereby implore the entire team not to let down the Governor-elect of Ogun State, his deputy and entire residents of the gateway state on the confidence and trust reposed in them and also task them to urgently rescue the state from the shackles of misappropriation/mismanagement of resources and misplaced priorities caused by the present administration in the state.”
The team was inaugurated by the governor-elect on Wednesday at the TCC Resort & Conference Centre, Ogere, Ogun State and the event had in attendance the deputy governor-elect and several other dignitaries across the state and beyond.
