The Chief Imam of Eripa in Boluwaduro Local Government Area, State of Osun, Alhaji Solaudeen Oyefolahan has on Thursday January 30, 2014 commended Governor Rauf Aregbesola of the State of Osun for the construction and rehabilitation of roads in the local communities.
Oyefolahan gave the commendation while fielding questions from Bioreports on the infrastructural development in the ancient town at his residence in Eripa.
Imam Oyefolahan who described Governor Aregbesola as a lover of peace, harmony and development, noted that the communities have wore a new look through massive quality road construction and rehabilitation embarked upon by the Aregbesola administration in the state.
The Islamic Cleric said apart from the construction of Otan-Oyegbaju/Iyalode road and First Baptist Church/ Alabi road in the community alone, Aregbesola has constructed/rehabilitated and is still rehabilitating/constructing many roads and bridges across the nooks and crannies of the state.
According to him, the commendation had become necessary in view of the outstanding performance of the governor and the monumental achievements he had recorded since his assumption of office three years ago.
He added that Governor Aregbesola had changed the face of the community and the state at large through his transformation agenda.
“Much work has been done to improve the environment and people have been mobilized in various forms to partner with government to make the environment beautiful, clean and healthy. Positive impacts have been made in the sectors of health, education, agriculture, manpower development and skills acquisition”
The Chief Imam, however, appealed to the governor on the need for him not to relent in his effort towards making the state one of the best in the country, just as he urged people of Eripa community and state at large to support government in its efforts toward turning the socio-economic situation of the state for the better.
