The General Manager of Osun State Agency for Community and Social Development Project (Osun-CSDP), Mrs Funmi Abokede, has charged the authorities of local councils in the state to stick to Community Driven Development (CDD) approach in providing social amenities for the people.

She said this at the review meeting organised by CSDP for the first quarter of this year to look into the status and condition of development projects in the local communities in the state.

The GM explained that the review meeting was aimed at promoting accountable governance and better public service delivery.

“This quarterly review was meant to assess the performance of CSDP assisted micro projects and to evaluate the use of Community Driven Development approach for the public service delivery,” Abokede said.

The projects that were reviewed at the meeting include, boreholes, transformers for electrification, health centers, road, civic centres, community libraries and vulnerable groups targeted interventions among others.

The Council Managers and Desk Officers who were at the quarterly review identified inadequate funding as a major factor hampering the provision of social amenities in the local communities in the state.

Abokede said the quarterly review by Osun Osun-CSDP was part of efforts to ensure proper maintenance and sustainability of various developmental projects in the local communities across the state to serve the people effectively.

The CMs and DOs from the 30 Local Government Areas and 38 Local Council Development Areas, Administrative Offices and Area Councils highlighted their activities towards the maintenance and functionality of CSDP assisted projects.

The CMs and DOs presented the status reports of the projects in their respective council areas and reported how they adopted CDD approach in the process.

In their presentations, the CMs and DOs also gave status reports of the projects in their councils and also revealed the challenges militating against the effectiveness of projects.

Abokede added that the performance review was an innovative strategy to monitor how public resources deployed to deliver services to the citizens are achieving the objectives. She said the review was a social accountability platform anchored on constructive engagement.

The Finance and Administration Manager of Osun CSDP, Mr Akin Ogunsakin, charged the Council Managers and the Desk Officers to strengthen the Community Driven Development initiative by carrying the community people along adequately and ensure that the citizens take ownership of the projects.
