The Osun State Government through its Agency for Community and Social Development Project (CSDP) has disclosed that no fewer than 252 communities in the state have benefited from ‎the state government micro projects.
The disclosure was made by the General Manager Osun CSDP, Mrs. Funmi Abokede during a recent press conference in Osogbo the state capital.
Abokede, while speaking at the event, said around 311 micro projects have so far been completed across all the 31 local government areas (LGAs) of the state. According to her, the state undertook these projects in its bid to ‎improve access of the poor to social and natural resources management as well as infrastructural services for human development in a sustainable manner.
She explained that the CSDP is co-funded by the World Bank and the state government. Abokede also stressed that the Osun government has continued to contribute its counterpart funding to the tune of N650 million between 2009 and 2015.
She ‎pointed out that the next phase of the project would focus on the physically-challenged in the state.
Earlier in his remark, the chairman Osun CSDP, Mr. AbdulRahaman Musa noted that the state government is committed to reducing poverty to the barest minimum through its agency for community and social development projects.
