Godwin Obaseki, has said about 50,000 jobs have been created in the state in the last seven years through the State Employment and Expenditure for Results (SEEFOR).

Mr Obaseki said this on Tuesday at a workshop in Benin, organised by Edo SEEFOR themed: “Sustainability of Social Accountability in Public Sector.”

Represented by his Chief of Staff, Taiwo Akerele, the governor said the state executive council, last year, approved N6 billion to complement the activities of SEEFOR in the state.

He said the approval was because the financing of SEEFOR project from World Bank was gradually winding down.

“With the support of SEEFOR, we have been able to pass the Public Financial Management Law, the Auditing Law and others,” Obaseki said.

He added that Edo was the first state in the country to publish contracts of above N10 million in its official website for public scrutiny and accountability in government.

The governor commended the Federal Government for making Edo to benefit from the European Union component of SEEFOR.

The Dean of the Faculty of Arts, University of Benin, Prof. Eddy Eragbe, charged Nigerians to monitor and query projects embarked on by the three tiers of government.

Project Coordinator, Edo SEEFOR, Toju Onaiwu, said the workshop was to further enhance public knowledge and accountability in government.
