by OtownGist

The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has said the state’s newly-unveiled 30-year development plan will sustain ongoing reforms and projects by his administration aimed at improving the livelihood of the people.

The governor told journalists on Monday that his government will continue to implement policies and pursue projects to advance the socio-economic situation of the state and its people.

He said, “This year, our state marked its 30th anniversary. While we are grateful to God for seeing us through the different challenges we faced all these years, we believe it is time for reflective thinking and an opportunity to chart a new course, while being targeted in our quest for sustainable development.

“In the last five years, we have undertaken transformational reforms targeted at overhauling the civil/public service, which is the engine that drives government.

“We are undertaking fundamental reforms in healthcare; emplacing foundational changes in the education system, revamping moribund infrastructure, prioritising human capital development and fast-tracking programmes and initiatives to drive inclusive growth.”

Noting that the 30-year development plan will drive sustainable socio-economic growth and development in the state over the next three decades, the governor said, “The last five years have been one of a battle to fix a disarticulated system by reintroducing the discipline and values of planning into government and governance process. We are aware that we need to sustain these deep reforms and initiatives. That is why we unveiled the 30-year development plan process, which we have commenced.
