0 102



Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has suspended foreign trips for top officials of his administration for the rest of the year, except for emergency situations.

The governor also directed the Head of Service, Mr Leye Aina, to prepare a memo that would state the relationship between the commissioners and  Special Advisers to ensure efficiency in the governance process.

Speaking during a meeting held with members of the State Executive Council, as a prelude to the submission of the Medium Term Expenditure Framework to the state House of Assembly, Adeleke declared that excessive spending on recurrent and overheads must be avoided.

Urging cabinet members to make personal sacrifices, the governor explained that all members of the administration must demonstrate readiness to sacrifice in the face of the state’s harsh financial situation.

He, however, called for due diligence on the budget preparation process, reading out key policy directives on the governance of the state.

A statement by the spokesperson to the governor, Olawale Rasheed obtained in Osogbo on Monday, quoting Adeleke further read, “Foreign trips for top officials for the rest of the year is hereby suspended unless there is a direct emergency to be authorised by the governor.

“We must sustain the momentum of our service delivery by avoiding excessive spending on recurrent and overheads. Our needs from office to accommodation are much, but our resources are limited. So we have to devise a coping mechanism pending the time our funding situation will improve.

“While memos by Special Advisers must pass through the Permanent Secretary to the Commissioners, the Commissioners must ensure fair play and accommodating spirit.”
