Our Desire To Make Osun A Business Hub Remains Sacrosanct – Oyetola

Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has restated his commitment to turn Osun State to a business hub in the South West through infrastructure development which according to him is a catalyst for the industrial revolution.

Oyetola who stated this in.Osogbo on Monday while inaugurating network of roads said his administration ‘is resolute to continue to deliver on his promise until the last road in Osun is in good standing’.

The governor who was joined in the inauguration by the former Chairman of Governors’ Forum, Dr. Kayode Fayemi reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to continuously setting Osun on the world map of socioeconomic development. He noted that the successful completion of most of the road projects was in fulfillment of the desire of his Administration to fix the failed road infrastructure not minding the classification, whether they belong to Federal, State or Local government, for the comfort of citizens and residents of Osun.

“In the last three weeks, there have been collaboration and celebration of road infrastructure between Osun and the Governor of Oyo.

“The feat is a fulfillment of our collective resolve to bring development to the South West despite political differences. I thank my brother governors in the South West for their leadership across our region and especially Governor Fayemi for demonstrating the same feat across the country during his tenure as the chairman of the country’s governors forum.

“Today’s inauguration is a further fulfillment of our administration’s avowed resolve to unleash infrastructure development on the State as a catalyst for the industrial revolution that we envisioned and part of our dream to make Osun the economic and industrial hub of the South West.

“It is also a fulfillment of the desire of our Administration to fix all failed road infrastructure not minding the classification, whether they are Federal, State or Local Government, for the comfort of citizens and residents of Osun and for further enhancement of the socioeconomic activities of the good people of the State.

“I must reiterate that the complete deterioration of this road before our intervention impacted negatively on the socioeconomic profile of the people living along this route for several years, with the attendant suffering and underdevelopment of the citizens causing huge loss on investments”, Oyetola added.

Earlier in his welcome address, Commissioner for Works and Transport, Engr. Remi Omowaye, said the State decided to construct the road despite the fact that it is owned by the Federal Government because of its socioeconomic impact on the people of the State.

He said the State embarked on the reconstruction of the road to ease traffic, lessen hardship and untold road mishaps, particularly in the capital city.

Omowaye described the government’s swift response leading to the rehabilitation of the road as a child of necessity having agreed to fund the project with State’s resources.

He acknowledged the Federal Government for giving the State express approval to reconstruct the road.

The Commissioner disclosed that the reconstruction of the road was single-handedly financed by the State government, having obtained approval from the Federal Ministry of Works.

In their separate remarks, Senator representing Osun Central Senatorial District, Dr. Ajibola Bashir; the Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, represented by Prince Sulaiman Olanipekun; the Olobu of Ilobu, Oba Ashiru Olaniyan; the Aragbiji of Iragbiji, Oba Abdul-Rasheed Ayotunde Olabomi, among other dignitaries, lauded Governor Oyetola for taking the welfare and general well-being of the people of the State as priority.
