Over the past four years, the Ministry of Energy has demonstrated unwavering resilience, successfully navigating through various challenges while steadfastly fulfilling its mandate to serve the people of Oyo State.

One of its most notable achievements lies in the creation of job opportunities for the indigenous population, thereby addressing crucial socio-economic concerns, raising standard of living of people and fostering inclusive growth within the state.

Central to the ministry’s endeavours has been the ambitious “Light Up Oyo” project, a groundbreaking initiative aimed at enhancing public lighting infrastructure across the state. Through this initiative, countless communities previously shrouded in darkness have been illuminated, ushering in newfound safety and security while facilitating increased economic activity during nighttime hours.

Furthermore, the introduction of the Independent Power Producer (IPP) initiative has revolutionized the state’s energy landscape, promoting sustainable energy generation and reducing reliance on conventional power sources.

This forward-thinking approach not only guaranteed a more reliable energy supply but also aligns with global efforts towards mitigating climate change and promoting environmental sustainability.

In addition to these landmark initiatives, the Ministry of Energy has undertaken the provision of solar street lights to selected markets and public health centers throughout Oyo State by harnessing the power of solar energy, these installations not only contribute to the state’s energy diversification efforts but also serve as a testament to its commitment to leveraging innovative solutions to address pressing societal needs.

As we reflect on the past four years, it becomes evident that the establishment of the Oyo State Ministry of Energy has been a catalyst for positive change, driving progress and prosperity across the region. Under the visionary leadership of Engineer Seyi Makinde and the able guidance of Barrister Ashamu Seun Temilolu Nurudeen, the ministry has not only withstood the test of time but has emerged as a beacon of hope and opportunity for the people of Oyo State.

Looking ahead, it is imperative that we continue to support and invest in this vital institution, ensuring that its transformative impact is felt for generations to come.
