Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde on Monday promised to sponsor two bills on an anti-corruption agency for the state and investment promotion.

Makinde noted that the OYSIPA bill, 2019 will birth an agency that will initiate, promote, facilitate, and coordinate investments in the state through Greenfield, Public-Private Partnerships, Privatization, Commercialization of state owned-assets and transform the economy of the state through strategic asset management.
