Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has congratulated residents on the occasion of 28th anniversary of its creation.
In a statement personally signed by him, the governor said that even though the government has every reason to roll out the drums in celebration, it has decided to make it a low-key due to the prevailing economic situation in the country.
He paid tributes his predecessors in office, for laying what he called a “solid foundation,” upon which successive administrations have continued to build on.
Gov Oyetola said the administration’s policies and programmes are driven by citizens’ needs, which were harvested during the thank-you tour/town hall meetings, where the people presented their yearnings and aspirations to the government.
He noted that the exercise was further validated by the United Kingdom Department for International Development’s (DFID) funded Citizens’ Needs Assessment exercise in Osun.
He explained that every responsible government must make people’s demands the basis of its policies and implementation.
