Osun State Government has restated its commitment to sustaining the social intervention programmes aimed at raising the standard of living of the people.
This assurance was given by the state Commissioner for Regional Integration and Special Duties, Mr. Olalekan Badmus, while speaking at the flag-off the 20th edition of monthly distribution of food items to the vulnerable citizens in Osogbo on Friday.
Badmus noted that the introduction of Osun food support scheme had helped to mitigate hardship on the part of the vulnerable segment of the population.
He added: “This scheme has been a great success and we have been able to build more entrepreneurs as months went by. It has been very encouraging. If you look at the socioeconomic value chain of this programme, one will not but appreciate the impact it has made in people’s lives.
“It is our hope and firm belief that it is a programme that we are going to continue and as we are finishing our first term, Mr. Governor will continue with the scheme when he comes back for his second term because it is a scheme that needs to be continued.”
