    By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo

    TOsun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, on Wednesday signed the 2022 Appropriation Bill into Law.

    He reiterated his administration’s commitment to further deliver prosperity to the people, provision of jobs and opportunities for the youth, delivery of more infrastructures and putting Osun on a surer footing.

    Signing the Appropriation Bill in his office, Governor Oyetola announced that the 2021 budget as at the third quarter of this year had recorded 83.66 percent performance.

    Oyetola noted that, with the passage and signing of the Appropriation Bill, the race to achieving even more in 2022 has begun as it remains a year of consolidation that will open the door for improved sustainable development.

    He expressed the confidence that by the end of the year when that of the final quarter would have been computed, the performance will be up from 95 per cent recorded in 2020.

    Oyetola attributed the appreciable performance of the budget to improved delivery of programmes and projects across the state during the year.

    According to him, the government was able to achieve this year’s budget performance and service delivery through improved employment of creative, innovative and probity strategies, including efficient deployment of available resources, cutting costs and plugging wastes to deliver service in a sorely challenged economy.

    He pledged his administration’s resolve to continue to follow time-tested principles for optimum results in 2022.

    He said that with 56 per cent capital allocation and 44 per cent recurrent allocation in next year’s budget, the government is on the path of increased service delivery in 2022.

    He commended the spirit of harmonious relationship, cooperation and synergy among the three arms of government, particularly between the legislature and executive.

    Oyetola commended the leadership and members of the legislative arm for quickly passing the Appropriation Bills on a consistent basis since the inception of his administration.

    He said the three budgets passed by the House so far were done with unprecedented dispatch during the periods of scarce resources and crass uncertainties occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic since last year, adding that the acts have proved the House’s capacity for service, understanding and love for the people.

    In his remarks, the Speaker, Osun House of Assembly, Hon. Timothy Owoeye, reiterated the House’s continued resolve to provide leadership that would smoothen governance and make life bearable and prosperous for the citizens through people-oriented legislation.

    Owoeye, who assured the House’s unalloyed support for the OyOyetola-leadministration, warned those that might be contemplating fanning the ember of division or disaffection among members of the Assembly to steer clear as the House remained resolute to ensure the success of the Administration.
