Aregbesola Promises To Complete Osun Airport


Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbesola, has reinstated his com­mitment to infra­structure development across the nooks and crannies of the state, in fulfillment of his prom­ise to deliver the dividends of de­mocracy to the people, especially in the rural areas.

The governor, who was re-elected on August 9, 2014, to com­plete his second term mandate, made the declaration through his Commissioner for Information, Mr. Sunday Akere, in an exclusive chat with Daily Sun at the week­end.

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.”
