Oyo Deputy Governor, Lawal Inspects OYSROMA Equipments, Charges Workers to be Diligent

The Oyo State Deputy Governor, Barr. Bayo Lawal has charged workers of the Oyo State Road Maintenance Agency (OYSROMA), to demonstrate their capacity and willingness to work.

Lawal stated this on Tuesday during a visit to oversee the operations of the agency as well as inspect the work equipments.

He noted that the present administration being led by Governor ‘Seyi Makinde is ensuring to keep up with the promises made to the people of Oyo State.

Reiterating the commitment of the state government to infrastructural development and road maintenance, the deputy governor said: “This is an engineering outfit. There is willingness of government to pump money. So you just have to shape up. I am coming back in the next two weeks. I am not particularly impressed by what I saw.”

The deputy governor charged the workers to be on their toes and make sure they are prepared for the work.

“You need to be in shape, in his opinion. You must be ready for hard work if the government is willing to provide funding”, he charged.

Asserting that the administration still has time to make necessary corrections, he revealed that Governor ‘Seyi Makinde has decided to provide at least one billion naira as a take-off grant to set things going.

Addressing newsmen, Bayo Lawal said: “I have promised the workers that I am coming back in the next two weeks. Even if we have the money ready, we must demonstrate the capacity to work and get the roads fixed. Government will put in grant to kick start the projects”.

Similarly, the deputy governor also visited the Housing Corporation where he charged the workers and staff to be diligent.

While urging them to sustain the legacies he left behind before his appointment as deputy governor, Lawal maintained that board members are still in place despite the vacuum of General Manager and Chairman.

He urged the workers to work harmoniously with the board members and also comport themselves in all manners for the progress of the corporation.

In the meantime, the deputy governor rounded off his meeting at the Ministry of Justice where he was received by the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of Oyo State, Professor Oyelowo Oyewo and other leading members of the ministry, who promised to collaborate with him on legal matters.
