To ensure that Osun State becomes the economic hub of Nigeria, Governor Rauf Aregbesola has once again reiterated his commitment to further develop infrastructure that will encourage investment both at the urban and rural communities of the state.
Speaking through the chairman, Aregbesola Campaign Committee in Ijesa North Federal Constituency, Dr. Wale Bolorunduro, Aregbesola assured the people that if voted into office for another term, rural-urban migration will become a thing of the past.
Bolorunduro who is also the Commissioner for Finance, Budget and Economic Planning disclosed that government, in an attempt to encourage small scale investors, has set aside N4billion as soft loan due for assessment by the people.
The campaign chairman, who led the door-to-door campaign trail of the federal constituency to Ilahun-Ijesa, Iwoye Ijesa and Ijebu Jesa said Aregbesola commitment to Agriculture informed his ‘O’ REAP programme, adding that to ensure easy transportation of farm produce, government will further open up rural communities with access roads.
He, however, charged the electorate to ensure that their votes count, adding that the presence of security agencies is not to intimidate but protect them.
Responding to Bolorunduro’s team visit to his palace, the Alahun of Ilahun-Ijesa, Oba Lawrence Ajayi, Ilufemiloye 1, pleaded with government to complete the Primary Health Centre under construction and assist the community in building a befitting palace and town hall.
While pledging the support of his subjects to the continuity of Aregbesola’s administration, Oba Ajayi said Governor Aregbesola had performed well and deserves to continue and accomplish his mission and vision for the state.
