Osun State Governor, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola has canceled the proposed foreign trip by local government chairmen to attend a workshop in Dubai, United Arab Emirate.
This is as gathered by AMILOADED through a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Adeniyi Adesina.
A part of the release reads, “Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has directed the cancellation of the proposed foreign trip by local government chairmen to attend a workshop.
“The governor said although it is desirable to continue to expose government officials to capacity building, the time is not auspicious for this trip, which was approved in September 2018.
“The governor assures public officers in the state that they will continue to be given the benefit of training at the appropriate time as the financial situation of the state permits.”
The cancelation is coming after a public outcry over the proposed trip by some concerned citizens who argued that the state has other financially pressing issues better than the said trip.
