Gov Adeleke Suspends Foreign Trips For Govt Officials


Osun Governor, Ademola Adeleke, on Monday, ordered suspension of foreign trips for government officials in his administration for the rest of the year, except on emergency cases.

The governor gave the order during a meeting held with members of the State Executive Council which deliberated on 2024 budget proposals from the ministries, departments, and agencies as a prelude to the submission of the Medium Term Expenditure Framework to the State House of Assembly in Osogbo.

According to him, all members of the administration must demonstrate readiness to sacrifice in the face of the state’s harsh financial situation and cabinet members should be able to make personal sacrifices.

The governor further declared that excessive spending on recurrent and overhead expenses must be avoided saying, “We must sustain the momentum of our service delivery by avoiding excessive spending on recurrent and overheads.”

“Our needs from office to accommodation are much, but our resources are limited. So we have to devise a coping mechanism pending the time our funding situation will improve.”

“While memos by Special Advisers must pass through the Permanent Secretary to the Commissioners, the Commissioners must ensure fair play and an accommodating spirit
