The State of Osun chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has declared that with eight years of exceptional governance in the state, Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola has indelibly imprinted his name in the history of Osun in particular and in Nigeria in general.
He has outperformed all governors before him, and at no time in the history of the state has a governor attracted as much international attention as Aregbesola has done.
According to the APC in a statement signed by it Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Barrister Kunle Oyatomi “There is no family in Osun that was not impacted by Aregbesola’s presence in government. All parents without exception with kids at school had their children’s school environment improved.
“Famers had a field day as most of their fortunes improved. Communities felt the infrastructural upgrade that Ogbeni Aregbesola effected throughout the state. Vulnerable elder citizens for the first time in the history of Osun were catered for by the state government. And nowhere in the Federation can any state governor boast of a standard and quality educational infrastructure, the like of which Aregbesola initiated and established in Osun in the last eight years.
“Indeed, when we talk of development index in Nigeria today, Osun under the leadership of Aregbesola is ranked only second to Lagos in the Federation.”
He said further, “By our own modest assessment, Aregbesola’s achievements socially, infrastructurally, educationally, agriculturally, and above all economically, more than double efforts of all other governors before him put together. That is incredibly exceptional. It is the stuff of which history is made.”
The party stated that, “So when we celebrate with the governor on his birthday, these achievements are actually what we celebrate and we are happy to be identified with the governor in this celebration of excellence.”
