From Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo
As part of policies of the All Progressives Congress (APCs) to put smiles on the faces of the people, the Osun state government has vowed to continue to drive the growth and development of the state through joint efforts.
The Supervisor in charge of the Ministry of Finance, Mr. Bola Oyebamiji, disclosed this during a press briefing in Osogbo.
Oyebamiji called for the support of the people to make the Governor Gboyega Oyetola led-administration succeed by seeing the business of governance as a joint responsibility for which they must be active participants.
The immediate past Commissioner for Finance, who doubles as the Supervisor for the Ministry of Commerce, Cooperatives and Industries, submitted that for government to succeed, people must contribute their quotas by paying taxes and other levies promptly for the government to be able to provide social amenities and build infrastructures.
He stressed the need for residents to join hands with the government to move the state forward.
According to him: “All over the world, no government can succeed without the inputs and contributions of the governed either through payment of taxes and levies or through maintenance of public works.
“Osun is already on a pedestal of greatness and we shall get there with the support of the people. Our state is ranked among the best in the country. With the support of our people, the task ahead will be easy for us to achieve,“ he added.
