Governor Oyetola At 66: Riding On A Good Legacy


Governor Oyetola At 66:  Riding On A Good Legacy

_( Busy Brain  Writes From Offa, Kwara State,  September 28, 2020 )_

Anytime I take a walk through the land of virtue and see the beautiful and mega schools built by Governor  Rauf Aregbesola, I always think Osun State has had enough of infrastructure and of course, the coming Governor would not have enough to do. Governor Aregbesola for eight years really tried his best.  He transformed the state from the aged statue to modern day land. All these awe inspiring transformation in Osun is a good legacy of Ogbeni.

Fortunately, the emergence of Governor Oyetola is another version of Messiah in State of Osun. Like Aregbesola, Governor Oyetola is riding on a good legacy.

The first thing that mesmerized my attention in the administration of Governor Oyetola is the continuous payment of state allowance to Osun state corpers. Obviously, the country's economy has relapsed from bad to worse with the outbreak of the novel virus. Covid-19 has crippled almost everything in the country. Economic, religious, educational and social activities have been stemmed and gloomy. While states struggle to maintain stability in the area of economy, Osun state government led by Governor Oyetola not only paying full salaries of workers, corps members are also smiling in the land of virtue.

Also, Oyetola's administration has performed wonderfully in putting the roads in its best shape. The road projects that are being carried out in nooks and crannies of Osun State are visible to the blind and audible to the deaf. Roads in Ede to Ejigbo, Iwo, Ara, Awo, Ido-Osun, Masifa, Sekona, Ofatedo, Ile-Ogbo, Kuta, Oluponna among others, are wearing new looks due to the drastic and concerted efforts of government to turn around the economies of the affected communities, towns and villages.

Furthermore, the general maxim of health is wealth sounds dearly to the  ears of the Governor. Governor Oyetola's administration values health of the people that dwell in the unique state. He revitalized 332 Primary Healthcare Centers through the $21 million support from the Saving One Million lives programme.

The health infrastructure initiative was extended to the then-moribund General Hospital, Ejigbo and the construction of the 150-bed and 50 doctors quarters at the state Specialist Hospital, Asubiaro, Osogbo. .

Governor Oyetola's  mind blowing achievements cannot be measured on paper. One good turn  really deserves another. I wish Mr. Governor happy birthday, more prosperous years in the land of virtue.
