Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun says the various social intervention programmes by his administration are geared towards alleviating poverty among the people of the state. He said this yesterday during an engagement programme, organised by the State Civic Engagement Centre in Akola village, Oriade Local Government Area of the state.
Represented by his Special Adviser on Civic Engagement, Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, he said his administration was committed to engendering social development by investing in people and helping them to the path of dignity and self-sufficiency.
The governor said: “The state government, working with the federal government, has executed and facilitated nothing less than N5bn intervention funds, disbursed to thousands of people who engage in micro, small and medium enterprises, among other industrial activities.
“This is in a bid to boost their businesses and, by extension, commercial and economic activities in the state.”
