According to Oyetola, although the trip was approved in 2018, embarking on same this time is not auspicious.
The governor said:
it was desirable to continue to expose government officials to capacity-building opportunities, the financial situation in the state at present did not permit such.
Oyetola, however, assured public officers in the state that they would continue to be given the benefits of training at the appropriate time as the financial situation of the state permits.
The media learnt that the 68 chairmen of Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas were billed to travel to the United Arab Emirates for a 10-day workshop.
It was also gathered in the preparations for the foreign trip started during the administration of former governor, Rauf Aregbesola, but was delayed till now due to lack of funds.
