Governor Oyetola’s infrastructure vision is meant to guarantee the prosperity of Osun State, works commissioner, Omowaiye has said.
He recently revealed that asides the continuation of the legacy projects of the immediate past government, Oyetola keeps doing what will aid the fast economic development of the state.
According to him, in the last 18 months, the governor has touched several aspects of the infrastructure needs of the people and he intends to keep it up.
He added that as of June 2020, various roads had been completed and Oyetola remains committed to fixing more of the damaged roads in the state.
His words, “In the last 18 months, the Oyetola administration in Osun has touched many aspects of the infrastructure needs of the people. Despite the lack of funds, we have progressed on the level of development we met.”
“So far, about 70% of our newly refurbished and revitalized PHC’s are ready. Some of them have been commissioned, while others await Mr. Governor’s inauguration. Very soon, the rest will be completed.”
“When we got in, one of the areas that was lagging behind in terms of road infrastructure was the west senatorial district. Most of the roads were either in bad shape, not motorable or inaccessible. With our priority needs assessment data, we set to work.
“As of June 2020, we have completed a number of roads there. We are also looking at major roads like the Ede to Ejigbo, Ejigbo to Iwo, Osogbo to Ejigbo, Osogbo to Iwo and other notable ones. We are working on these roads and Mr. Governor’s commitment to them is unshaken.”
“Residents of the area were full of gratitude to us. They’ve not had their road touched in years. It was carnival-like when we got there. Same thing occurred when we were in Ede. The people are happy and they can heave a huge sigh of relief,”
“We are willing to do more. The infrastructure deficit met by the last administration was huge.
“It did its best while we are building on what was done. What the Oyetola administration is doing is to focus on the areas that were not touched, with a view to doing much more. We have done more with less and great quality.
“We are threading the path of continuity and sustainability. Do not also forget that we are also working on the major roads started by the Rauf Aregbesola administration.
“We are continuing work on them and we will ensure their completion because they add value to the economic potentials of the state.”
