From Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo
The Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, has charged his cabinet members to hit the ground running immediately, declaring that the team is in a hurry to transform the state.
Oyetola spoke at the ongoing four-day Executive Council Retreat in the state.
He reiterated the commitment of his administration to make more unprecedented progress with a view to building a greater state that would become a benchmark for national development in all ramifications.
While speaking on the theme of the retreat: “My Development Agenda for the State of Osun”, Oyetola reaffirmed his administration’s determination to deliver a state that works and can compete with others globally in terms of basic amenities and provision of modern facilities that will enable citizens to live happily and productively, while fulfilling all their God-given potentials.
He said the government was poised to continue the running of a wholly empathetic government whose singular pre-occupation is to significantly uplift the well-being of the people of Osun.
The governor also charged cabinet members to see their appointments as a clarion call to serve humanity and promote the policy thrust and development agenda of the administration.
He said the government would continue to do more in carefully implementing the comprehensive Developmental Agenda to place the state on the path to sustainable growth and development.
The governor added that government was poised to create a prosperous economy that provides opportunities for all, saying, “This shall be done through strategic investment in agriculture and food security, creation of a bustling tourism sector that would see Osun becoming the nation’s destination of choice, and ensure the full exploitation of our mineral resources for wealth creation.”
Charging cabinet members on the need to key into the lofty policies, programmes and development agenda of the government, Oyetola said “Together, we must build a state that provides opportunities for all classes of our people irrespective of backgrounds or even political inclinations. We must build a secured and assured future that offers hope for today and for the generation yet unborn”.
