The Oyo State Project Monitoring Agency will serve as a centralized body responsible for overseeing all projects from start to finish, thereby eliminating fragmentation and ensuring a coherent and coordinated approach to project execution. This consolidation of project monitoring efforts Willing streamline processes, minimize duplication of efforts, and maximize the impact of every naira spent on public projects.

The agency aims to enhance transparency and accountability in project implementation by providing timely and accurate information on the progress and performance of ongoing projects. This transparency not only fosters public trust but also enables informed decision-making and constructive feedback loops, ultimately leading to better outcomes for the people of Oyo State.

Moreover, the agency underscores Governor Makinde’s commitment to prudent financial management and the judicious use of public funds. By ensuring proper oversight of project expenditures and adherence to budgetary allocations, the agency aims to curb wastage, prevent corruption, and maximize the value derived from every investment in infrastructure and development initiatives.

Interestingly, the signing of the Oyo State Project Monitoring Agency Bill into law marks an important milestone in the state’s quest for sustainable development and good governance. Through institutionalizing transparency, accountability, and efficiency in project management, his administration is laying the foundation for a more inclusive, prosperous, and resilient Oyo State. As citizens, we can look forward to the tangible benefits of this proactive measure, as our collective resources are harnessed to drive positive change and improve the quality of life for all.
