Oyo State Social Welfare Ibadan in very sorry state [Pictures]I’m not a fan of Linda Ikeji but a story she published got my attention. One of her readers visited the Ibadan office of Oyo State Welfare Board which is under Oyo State Ministry of Women Affairs, Community Development and Social Welfare. The visitor took pictures that perfectly depict the rot that is ongoing in that place, and possibly elsewhere
I spoke to one of the workers there and IBPulse‘s wild guess got confirmed – Governor Abiola Ajimobi is not really keen on the facility.
The concept of social welfare service is to have a reforming facility where wayward children could be retrained and reintegrated into the society. The facility in Oyo state is also being used to house abandoned children. But since the deplorable state of the facility is testifying to its abandonment by the state government, it is now making much sense why there are so many untrained children, touts and hooligans in Ibadan metropolis.
