The Ogun State government has re-scheduled its town hall meeting initially fixed for Thursday 19 to Friday October 20, 2017, bid to hold at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Abeokuta, to give room for more participation.
The Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Ms Adenrele Adesina made this known while fielding questions from journalists on the 2018 budget town hall meeting in Abeokuta.
She said the shift in date would also allow for more spread of information among all stakeholders expected at the meeting for an all inclusive forum.
The Commissioner enjoined various interest groups to make themselves available for the deliberation, urging them to ask questions and identify grey areas needing government’s attention towards ensuring a people-oriented and development-friendly budget for 2018.
‘’Government alone cannot take the State to where it ought to be, members of the public must play their roles actively in budget process’’, she said.
