It gives me great pleasure to commission the new ultra-modern Office Complex of the Ibadan Urban Flood Management Project (IUFMP)

I am particularly elated by the timely completion of this project as it is indicative of the seriousness and importance we attach to the issue of flooding and other environmental challenges, as well as the need to curb its disastrous effects on our ever budding State.

I congratulate the Project Implementation Unit of the Ibadan Urban Flood Management Project, the people of Oyo State and the various communities that will benefit from this project. It is on this note that I therefore declare the IUFMP Office Complex open for use.
