Youth Development, Osun Sends Bill to State Assembly



Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, on Thursday said a bill for the establishment of a youth development commission has been forwarded to the House of Assembly.

Oyetola disclosed this at a policy dialogue on youth agenda organised by Kimpact Development Initiative in Osogbo.

The governor, who was represented by the Commissioner for Youth, Sports and Special Needs, Yemi Lawal, said the bill was a response to the request presented at the 1st Osun Youth Policy Agenda.

He said when passed into law, the bill would enhance youth-centered policies and development plan.

In demonstration of his commitment to providing employment for youths in the state, Oyetola said he convened the Osun Economic Investment Summit, which was attended by over 1,000 local and international participants, including investors and business moguls.

He said, “The Executive Order for the establishment of the Osun Investment Promotion Agency was signed at the event. 

These two economic entities are designed to unlock the rich potential of the state and radically transform its economy.

“Twenty-two investors and business czars signed Memoranda of Understanding with the state at the summit in the critical areas, especially in agriculture, mining, infrastructure and economy. 

Our goal is to make Osun the commercial hub of the South- West.”
