The new Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, says his administration will create a portal, to generate the data of unemployed youths in the State.
Abiodun, who made the promise during his inauguration ceremony in Abeokuta, says the portal will be ready in the next few weeks.
Also, a trust fund on employment will be established, to empower unemployed youths in the State, to create more jobs for the people.
Governor Abiodun says internship programmes will be introduced, to temporarily engage unemployed youths in the State.
Abiodun also promises to revive the State Security Trust Fund, to provide Police and other security agencies with adequate weapons and communication gadgets, to create a more secured environment for businesses to thrive in the State.
On road projects in the State, the new Governor promised to focus on the construction of rural roads while promising fair distribution of physical infrastructural projects across the State.
Abiodun promises to run a transparent Government, not that of cronies and close associates.
On education, Abiodun says that his administration will review the controversial relocation of some of the State’s higher institutions of learning by the Amosun administration.
Also to be reviewed are the last minute appointments made by the Amosun administration in the institutions.
He also says that a visitation panel will be set up to visit all Government owned higher institutions, to know their agitations.
