Osun State governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, has said that the road linking Osun State with Ogun State en-route Orile-Owu, would soon be reconstructed, to enhance inter-state movement and trade between Ogun and Osun states, thereby fast-tracking socio-economic transformation of the two sister states.
Aregbesola made this known while on a visit to Ayedaade Local Government Council Area, where he commissioned series of projects executed by the Chairman, caretaker committee of the council area, Evangelist Nathaniel Akinsoji Arabambi, to mark his 100 days in office.
The state deputy governor, who represented the governor on the occasion, Otunba (Mrs) Grace Laoye-Tomori, commissioned several blocks of classrooms, teachers’ offices built in various schools at Oogi, Orile-Owu, Odeomu and Gbongan. Others included a new Primary Health Centre at Motako, Orile-Owu and a block of 10 open market stalls at Odeomu.
Also at the commissioning, the council’s caretaker committee boss donated medical equipment worth thousands of naira to the Primary Health Centre in the area. He commended the administration of Rauf Aregbesola for being a people-friendly government that has taken several worthy steps towards ensuring qualitative health care delivery in Osun State.
While recounting his list of achievements, Arabambi described Aregbesola as a motivating factor, whose style of governance, passion and skills have kept him on his toes to make laudable impact on the lives of the people of Ayedaade.
Receiving the equipment on behalf of Aregbesola, Laoye-Tomori described the Ayedaade council boss as a true replica of Aregbesola, an attribute which the deputy governor said came through the council boss’ laudable impact in the areas of education and health-care delivery within his short period of holding sway at the helms of affairs in the council area.
The deputy governor then assured that Odeomu, being a major town in the council area, would receive a lot of face-lift, just as Orile-Owu would be opened up as a town linking Osun with Ogun State.
The commissioning exercise saw the deputy governor and her entourage paying homage to the palaces of the Alayegun of Odeomu and Oloogi of Oogi, where she assured the monarchs of Governor Aregbesola’s keen interest in transforming all sectors of Osun State.
She therefore called on them to continue praying for and support Aregbesola-led administration saying, the current achievements are just a tip of the iceberg when compared with what is still to come.
