Osun Government Charges CDCs on Development

The Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has charged the Community Development Council on development, peace and security in the conduct of the forth coming CDC election.

 

He gave the charge while sensitising the members of the CDC in the State on the election.

The Governor, who was represented at the tour by the Senior Special Assistant on Rural and Community Affairs, Hon. Moshood Titilola, explained that for a Development Association to be recognized, it must at least have a minimum of 80 households and maximum of 200 households.

The State of Osun Community Development Council (CDC) has been able to perform through the collaborative efforts of the Donors from home and abroad and Federal, State and Local Governments. Therefore the communities need to embrace peace and tranquility in the forth coming Community Development Council (CDC) elections.

These were the submissions of the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Rural and Community Affairs, Hon. Moshood Olusegun Titilola during the Community Development Council (CDC) Sensitization Programme embarked upon for the coming CDC elections across the State of Osun.
