Ogun State House of Assembly has charged the second term proposed cabinet of Governor Dapo Abiodun  to initiate policies and programmes that encourage use of technology to boost food production, enhance transportation system as well as address the challenges of insecurity and waste management in the state

The State lawmakers gave the charge on Wednesday during the screening of nine of the ten nominees that made the second batch of Commissionership list sent by Governor Abiodun to the house for consideration and approval 

The legislators took turn to offer various suggestions to  the nominees during the screening chaired by the Speaker, Right Honourable Olakunle Oluomo at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta. 

They requested that if confirmed and sworn-in by the Governor,  the nominees should redouble their efforts at consolidating on the success recorded during the first term of Prince Dapo Abiodun led-administration in the State through the introduction of policies that would have direct impact on the people.

Challenging the new Commissioner nominees to always give consideration to application of local contents, the Assemblymen also enjoined them to adopt technology in transportation  management and agriculture to tap into the comparative advantage of the State being the industrial hub of the nation.
