Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde yesterday took an oath of office for a second term and announced the establishment of the Oyo State Mobilisation Agency for Socio-Economic Development (OMASED).

He said the newly established agency is mandated to establish a public orientation and sensitisation framework into which all agencies and departments of government must key into.

Daily Trust reports that Makinde who becomes the second governor of Oyo State to be elected for a second term, made this known during his inaugural address at the swearing-in ceremony held at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, Ibadan.

“I direct the creation of the Oyo State Mobilisation Agency for Socio-Economic Development (OMASED). This agency will be mandated to establish a public orientation and sensitisation framework into which all agencies and departments of government must key in.

“This framework will ensure continuous sensitisation and enlightenment using traditional, electronic, and social media. I further direct that this framework should incorporate a timetable for the enforcement of all existing traffic, waste management, and street trading laws,” he said.

The governor promised to continue to deliver good governance in the second term after highlighting some of his administration’s achievements, which cut across education, infrastructural and road development, security, and others in the last four years.

 “We promise to do even more; we will work towards ensuring that the backlog of gratuity payments is cleared within the next four years. Of course, we will continue with the consistent payment of workers’ salaries and pensions monthly.
