Osun at 28: Biyi Odunlade Felicitates with Osun Government, Residents



Former Commissioner for Social Protection, Sports and Special Needs in Osun State, Comrade Biyi Odunlade has felicitated with the Osun State Government, citizens and residents of the state on the 28th Anniversary of the state’s creation.

Odunlade appreciated the resilience of the people of the state to have a state that we are all proud of today.

He said that the then so-called ‘civil servant state’ has been transformed into a business hub and gradually inching towards an industrialised state.

He noted that this was possible because the people of the state have settled for the progressives since 1999 saying that people are gradually forgetting the seven years of locusts of the ruining Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state.

Speaking through his media aide, Matthew Afolabi in a press statement, Odunlade stressed that the foundation laid by Chief Bisi Akande is being built upon.

“Chief Bisi Akande laid the foundation for the development of the state in 1999 but we had a setback between 2003 and 2007. Those were our locust years.

“But thankfully, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola secured peoples mandate in 2010 and the state was again put back on the development track. As a result of this, the good people of the state reposed confidence in the progressives and returned governor Gboyega Oyetola.” He said.

The former Commissioner said that governor Oyetola is taking governance to the next level in the state.

“We are all witnesses to the ongoing monumental projects being implemented by the All Progressives Congress, APC, led government in the state from health to education, infrastructure, and human capital development among others.” He stated.

Odunlade appealed to the people of the state to remain faithful to the ideals of the progressives noting that “only progressives can take the state to desired heights of abundance and prosperity.”
