Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has inaugurated a 27-man steering committee to formulate a 20-year development plan in the state.
Makinde after the inauguration on Friday said that the projected 20-year world-class developmental plan for the state will take effect from 2021 to 2040.
He further added that Oyo state needed a homegrown long-term plan to transform its social-economic development and address developmental challenges in all aspects of the state economy within a stipulated time frame.
Makinde said; “The committee inaugurated would provide direction for the government’s expenditure across the length and breadth of the state without marginalisation.
“The 20-year Development Plan would be led by a Lead Consultant and enabled by the state government.
“The planning process will be all-inclusive and participatory with full involvement of the Civil Society Organisations, Non-Government Organisations, Physically-Challenged Persons among others.”
