The Osun State Government on Thursday in Osogbo unveiled a 10-year development plan aimed at improving the economy of the state as well as human capital.
The state Commissioner for Economic Planning, Budget and Development, Olalekan Yinusa, said the Osun development plan 2019-2028 was hinged on the four pillars of Economic Development, Capital Development and Security, Infrastructure Development and Environmental Sustainability.
The commissioner said that a common vision and mission had been carefully and succinctly captured in the document for the economic growth of the state.
“The state’s vision is to be a prosperous state in a secure and sustainable environment.
“While the mission is to promote sustainable development through pragmatic, transparent, accountable and inclusive governance that mobilises human and material resources toward making the state a socio-economic and cultural hub of Nigeria.’’
According to him, the roadmap to decisively address diverse strategic issues of widespread unemployment, low productivity, infrastructural deficit and low agricultural productivity is clearly defined in the plan.
The commissioner noted that the plan was fundamentally different from previous plans in terms of preparation, comprehensiveness of content and implementation strategy.
He said the plan evolved from the past development plans, with the inclusion of materials of current and future developmental relevance.
