He stressed that though he had since embarked on different gigantic projects in the state with evidences of success, particularly in road construction as well as enormous provision of other social infrastructure. According to him, the priority project of the administration was the national airport, which is undergoing construction and had reached an advanced stage.
“Since Aregbesola emerged as the governor of Osun State and even now that he is preparing to be inaugurated on November 27 for his second term tenure, his mindset has been to build new Osun. That’s why he does not rest on his oars in embarking on developmental projects as well as social infrastructure in the state,”Akerele stressed.
“One of the major projects in this regard is the airport that is undergoing construction and there is no going back about it, no matter the challenges of meager resources that we are facing in the state,” he added.
He admitted that the people of the state, particularly the civil servants, were groaning in pains because of irregular salaries, following federal allocation that was not steady, he however, assured that “by the time we are through with the legacies we are setting, everybody will smile.”
