Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to completing the reconstruction of Osogbo-Iwo road.
He said the administration would continue to take infrastructure as priority, noting that the state was committed to ensuring good and motorable roads across Osun.
This is even as the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdul-Rasheed Adewale Akanbi, solicited people’s support for Oyetola’s administration in the state.
Governor Oyetola spoke on Thursday at the commissioning of ‘Telu Square’, in Iwo, a tower built by Oluwo to commemorate his 4th year coronation anniversary.
Oyetola who described infrastructure as key to development, held that the state would ensure the completion of all the ongoing roads.
“Our adminstration is committed to completing Osogbo-Iwo road. We are not doing this alone. All the ongoing projects will be completed and we will equally initiate more.
“We are determined to embark on mass road projects across the state to complement those we are doing now”, Oyetola said.
He commended Oluwo for complementing the government’s efforts, describing the gesture as remarkable and worthwhile.
“I must commend you for your foresight to construct this. This is another way to support government because what you did is part of what government is supposed to do.
“I urge you all to support your monarch and rekindle your support for government by allowing peace at all times”, he added
Earlier in his address, Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdul-Rasheed Adewale Akanbi, described the project as a way to solidify a new virile foundation for Iwo and give the town a modern facelift of development.
He also noted that the tower would serve as a tourist site and add to the aesthetic values of the ancient town.
Oba Akanbi urged the people of Iwo to continue to support the administration of Governor Oyetola.
Those in attendance are the Deputy Governor, Mr. Benedict Alabi; Chief of Staff to the Governor, Dr. Charles Akinola; members of State and National Assembly; members of the State Executive Council, APC loyalists, among others.
