GOVERNOR of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has declared that the traditional institution in the state will soon begin to get 10 per cent of the net allocations of the local government areas.

The constitutional allocation, which was pegged at five per cent, has been a source of complaint from traditional rulers around the country for years.

Makinde has, however, indicated that he would find out if the changes could be made by an Executive Order and start the payment of the 10 per cent before the end of his first tenure in office.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. TaiwoAdisa, on behalf of the Governor Seyi Makinde 2023 Campaign Council, indicated that the governor stated this in Egbeda Local Government, Ibadan, while addressing traditional rulers in the council at the weekend

While also addressing party faithful and residents of the local government, who converged on the Airport Junction, Ibadan, the governor said the government would expand the Olodo Bridge like the government did with the General Gas Flyover, Akobo.

He equally promised to fix the road from Erunmu to Egbeda Junction as part of his rural development programmes, if he is re-elected as governor.

Makinde, who appreciated the residents for their support for his administration and their acknowledgement of his achievements, said more will come under Omituntun 2.0.

“I appreciate you my people of Egbeda Local Government. I appreciate you for your support for our government, your government and for acknowledging our achievements.

Speaking with the traditional rulers on the issue of allocation, the governor said: “Concerning the percentage for traditional leaders, since I came in, we have never defaulted in payment of salaries to you, though it may not be enough.
