It was a very colourful scene on Wednesday in Ilesa as members of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Ilesha West local government rolled out their drums in a road show to celebrate Governor of Osun, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola as he clocks 67years.
Donning different uniforms and their orange caps with the inscription “Oyetola 4 +4”, the road show saw the youths and the Commissioner dancing through the nooks and crannies of the local government in about 7.5km walk which terminated at the popular Ilesa round about.
Participants at the road show used the opportunity to share gift items such as exercise books to young children, while food items such spaghetti and noodles were distributed to aged people by the road ride as residents of the local government were seen dancing and waving their hands and brooms in celebration of the Governor’s birthday.
One of the participants at the road show who is also the Chairman Caretaker Committee of Ilesha West LG, Hon. Olusegun Olabode described the exercise as an opportunity to celebrate an achiever who has redefined governance and take Osun to another height of development.
He added that the Governor deserve to be celebrated because he has prioritized the welfare of citizens and has been paying full salaries and pensions as and when due, a step which he said has gone a long way in alleviating the suffering of a lot of residents of the state.
In his words, “Who will not want to identify with an achiever? Governor Oyetola has not only achieved a lot with meager resources, he has also redefined governance and raised the bar of Government.
“This is a man that has continued to build infrastructures without borrowing a dime, he kept paying salaries of Civil Servants before the end of the month, pensioners are also not left out, the welfare of every resident is paramount in his heart. That is why we have trooped out in large numbers today to celebrate our amiable Governor as he clocks 67”. He stated.
