Female Professionals in the State of Osun are rallying support for the administration of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, and also for his re-election at the expiration of his first term.
The group, through its Coordinator, Hon. Olanike Omoworare, described Oyetola as a man of integrity and excellence.
Speaking on Thursday during the inauguration of the Professional Women Group of the Oyetola Consultative Forum, the female professionals also commended the achievements of Governor Oyetola in the areas of citizens’ welfare, security and infrastructural developments.
They said: “We cannot but acknoedge the good works that Mr Governor is doing to transform our dear State. These are noticeable in the areas of infrastructural development, healthcare, human capacity development, prompt payment of workers’ salary, among others.
“Just a couple of days ago, a whopping sum of N 963 million was released to 143 retirees under the contributory pensions scheme, including those at the State and Local Government levels despite the harsh economic conditions of our State.
“Earlier this week, his government made it known that plans are completed for the implementation of the Olaiya Flyover by Strategic Alternative Funding.
“It is our duty as political leaders of the party in government, to highlight the achievements of the incumbent Governor and support his laudable programs. It is for this reason that we are calling the attention of the good people of Osun, to be aware of the massive infrastructural and human development in Osun State and re-elect Mr Adegboyega Oyetola in 2022 in order to continue the good job”, the women group stated.
In his goodwill message, the Chairman of the occasion and former Commissioner for Finance in the State of Osun, Mr Ojo Moses, commended the initiative of the women group for lending their support to a worthy cause.
“This government has done more than the doubters can fathom. He has been able to strategically and prudently manage the finances of Osun State, juggling many socio-economic balls successfully. He is paying full salaries in a State where workers earned half salaries for a long time. He has diligently catered for the welfare of retirees in a State where retired civil servants had previously groaned in hardship of non-payment of pensions and gratuity.
“As a Finance Expert, I am still learning from the management acumen of Mr Oyetola. It is only fitting that he should be allowed to continue with the excellent discharge of good governance in the State of Osun.
“For those agitating to assume the leadership of their State, it is important to examine their antecedents especially in leadership terms. Let us examine their track records and see if they can match or surpass the level of excellence that this man has brought into governance.”, Ojo Moses stated.
Also in her remark, the Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode, applauded the Professional Women’s Group for the initiative and called on women across the State to support Governor Oyetola, whom she described as a good and marketable product that is delivering proven values to consumers.
She described him as a patient leader, who is willing to work and backs up his willingness with an unusual display of diligence and commitment.
