We are committed to citizens welfare – Oyetola
From Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo
Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola has assured of his administration’s commitment to provide social amenities for citizens and residents across the state.
The governor disclosed this on Saturday during the 2019 Ikire day celebration.
He said his administration is working hard to provide services and projects for every ward and Local Government Area on equitable basis.
To achieve this goal, Oyetola noted that he is presently collaborating with local and international business partners to unlock the business and investment potentials of the state in order to bring prosperity to the people and a desired development to the entire state.
The governor who was represented by his Deputy, Mr Benedict Alabi said the set goal brought about the economic and investment summit holding in the state this week.
According to him, the initiative is to bring the local and international business partners and investors to the state to unveil strategies and investment opportunities.
He said job opportunities will be created for the people especially the teeming youth as well as to industrialise the state and transform the economy for the prosperity of all.
Oyetola stated that Ikire is going to benefit a lot in the initiative for being at a strategic location along the main road that leads to the states in the South West and the other part of the country.
He added that this offers the ancient town a huge business advantage above any other community in the state.
He then appealed to all the well-meaning sons and daughters of Ikire both home and in diaspora to take advantage of the ongoing business and investment drive in the state to establish business ventures and facilitate development to the town.
He also called on people of Ikire to continue to maintain peace and harmony for which they are known for saying that any threat to peace in the town will have implications for the business and the peace of the state and the entire nation.
He implored them to continue to live in peace and collaborate to deliver projects to the town.
