The Oyo State Government has said that it would continue to partner service oriented organizations and individuals within and outside the state in its developmental projects that could facilitate the uplift of the state.
This was said by the state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr. Toye Arulogun during the foundation laying ceremony of a six-room toilet donated to the Oyo State Council for Arts and Culture, Mokola by the Ibadan-Mokola new Centennial chapter of the Lions Club recently.
While applauding the Club’s gesture in lending helping hands to the Cultural Centre, Mokola and its neighboring community, Arulogun called on other service oriented organizations and individuals to contribute their quota to the development of the state and the country in general.
The Commissioner appreciated Lions club’s contribution to a hygienic and healthy environment, saying that the government looks forward to better collaborations in other developmental projects with the organization.
Mr. Arulogun further stressed that the State Government intends to upgrade the facilities within the Council for Arts and Culture to a modern one, noting that this would increase patronage and improved revenue generation at the centre.
In his speech, Charter President, Ibadan Mokola new Centennial Lions club, Lion Olorunfemi Bankole Philips said the club is passionate about assisting their immediate community and complementing government’s efforts.
One of the highlights of the event was the investiture of Mr. Toye Arulogun as a centennial charter member of the Ibadan Mokola new Centennial chapter Lions Club.
