The governor, who stated this in Ogbomoso during a Town Hall meeting in com­memoration of the second anniversary of the govern­ment, held at the Soun Ogun­lola Hall, Oja-Igbo, Ogbomo­so, said that open grazing is illegal in the state.

He added that the govern­ment will continually engage the people of the state in the budget process, adding that a government team that will collate data for the next budget will soon embark on consultations with the com­munities.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the gover­nor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, quoted the governor as also assuring the people that his govern­ment would soon create an al­ternative road to the Ibadan/ Oyo/Ogbomoso Expressway, a federal road which he said has been under construction for too long.

According to him, the state government will con­struct the Iseyin/Ogbomoso road to link the Ibadan/Ise­yin road already constructed and ensure that travellers to Ogbomoso bypass the traffic snare on the federal road.

He said: “In Oyo State, open grazing is against the law. The implementation plan will come out within the next six to eight weeks. So, to my brother from Oriire who spoke about open grazing, the Task Force will not be for Oriire alone, it will cut across Oyo State.

“So, whoever goes against the law in this state will face the wrath of law and that is just it.

“And concerning all the re­quests on road construction, we will plan ahead. Some of these projects will be included in the budget that we are going to come up with next year be­cause we have to work with the fund in government coffers.

“When you engage with our team on budget, which will be going round very soon, make sure some of these roads are mentioned and I give you my promise that we will do all we can to ensure the right things are done.”
