A cursory appraisal of the appointment indicated that all the appointees, carefully selected, were real grassroot politicians whose past records clearly reflected in the polity of the state, as well as their respective community they represented.
The appointment of the Government’s Liaison Officers (GLOs) executive members was targeted at improving the Local Government’s administration, as well as bringing governance closer to the people at the grassroots levels and to serve as a feedback mechanism through a two-way communication process between the government and the people.
The government liaison officers also have a duty to work closely with their council bosses by championing the course of development at the local communities and ensure that the people get the dividends of democracy.
Governor Dapo Abiodun while inaugurating the 20 20 Liaison Officers for all the local government councils of the state enjoined them to justify the confidence reposed in them by demonstrating the ability to ride above situations and challenges while also remaining loyal to the cause of serving humanity.
