We did 90-km of roads in one year, says Osun Govt

Osun State Commissioner for Information, Kola Alimi, has said the government has built 90-km of roads in one year.

He was briefing reporters yesterday in Osogbo, the capital.

The commissioner said the government reconstructed 90 kilometres of road,

adding that 31 schools “has been fully rehabilitated.”

At the briefing with Alimi are spokesperson for the governor, Olawale Rasheed; Commissioner for Water Resources, Sunday Oroniyi; Commissioner for Political Affairs and Intergovernmental Relations, Biyi Odunlade; Commissioner for Home Affairs, Rasheed Aderibigbe; Commissioner for ICT & Digital Economy, Maruf Ayofe; Special Adviser Public Enlightenment, Eniola Odeniyi and Special Adviser Transport, Moshood Yakubu.

The governor’s absence in the state and country in the last three weeks has, however, made the citizens to speculate about his whereabouts.

Many people in the state believed he was in the United States on medical vacation.

But speaking on a local radio station yesterday, he said he was in Thailand, holidaying.

Governor Adeleke told Rave FM in Osogbo during a current affairs programme, Frank Talk, that he is in Thailand on vacation.

He berated the allegation that he went for surgery, explaining that “I am on vacation and I also went to woo investors into the state. When I return, Osun people will see the result of my travelling.

“I have governed the state with the fear of God and the rule of law. I am very empathic about the plight of the people. This is why my government is people-oriented, unlike the bad way the previous government treated our people. Osun people should expect more from my government.”
