“For those seeking details about boreholes, schools and health related projects, documentary details will be provided on the cost of projects, the direct labour nature of projects, stages of completion, location of projects among others. Interested members of the public, media and civil society will also have the opportunity to visit project sites and assess stages and quality of Works done.

“Aside from being a forum for accountability on the side of the government, it would also provide an avenue for policy ideas from the civil society, media and the public into the government policy processes. At each Ipade Imole, the general public will be opportune to suggest ideas to the government.

“The quarterly forum will involve participants from various sectors of the society. Each relevant group will have delegate representation to ensure coordinated approach. We will partner with media organisations in Osun state for full coverage of each session”, the statement noted.

Governor Adeleke who said his 100 days activities by March ending marked the first mini ‘Ipade Imole’ added that the first expanded forum will hold by June ending at a senatorial district to be announced.

“I assure the good people of Osun that each forum will equip the citizenry with publications on government activities and also avail them the space to question and interface with relevant agencies and officials. Ipade imole will be a genuine accountability forum to be conducted in both Yoruba and English languages”, the Governor concluded.
