Governor of Osun state, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbsola has said that impunity in governance among political office holders that has resulted into wastage of human and material resources would be a thing of the past in the administration of General Muhammadu Buhari.
According to the governor, effort of the sage, Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, to have progressive-minded people at the helms of affairs at the federal level in
Nigeria since 1952 helped to realise the electoral victory of General Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the general election.
Aregbesola stated this on Thursday, 23rd April, 2015 when members of the Buhari Action Group (BAG) in the state visited the governor in his office to appreciate him for the roles he played in the election which culminated in the victory of APC.
Represented by his deputy, Mrs. Grace Titilayo Laoye-Tomori, Mr. Aregbesola said era of flagrant use of office stressed that the coming administration will give better living condition to Nigerians.
He said employment opportunities will be made available to youths, while provision of infrastructural facilities, free and compulsory education and viable health sector would be given priority by the Buhari-led administration saying the APC government at the federal level is poised at giving real dividend of democracy to Nigerians.
Assuring the people that some of the people’s oriented programmes of his administration such as O-Meals, O-Yes and O-Reap will be replicated at the federal level, Governor Aregbesola thanked people of the state for their unalloyed support for his administration which resulted in their voting massively for APC in last year’s governorship election in the state and the last general election.
Chief of Staff to the Governor, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, said the advent of APC government at the federal level in Nigeria is the beginning of a new dawn in the country maintaining that the welfare of Nigerians will be given high priority.
Alhaji Oyetola said corruption, which has eaten into the fabric of governance of the nation, would become a thing of the past as APC government across states of the federation is known for probity and accountability while General Buhari is a man of accountability which will translate to a safe society for Nigerians.
Attributing the last presidential election victory to divine arrangement, Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in the last administration in the state of Osun, Barrister Kolapo Alimi, said all gladiators who fought relentlessly to bring about the victory had written their names in gold.
Leader of the Buhari Action Group, Mr. Olagunju Ganiyu, commended efforts of Governor Aregbesola and members of his cabinet for their efforts in making dreams of APC a reality.
On her part, Mrs. Funmi Gbadeyan, said the Aregbesola administration is a blessing to the state of Osun following series of people’s oriented programmes currently going on across the state and prayed for more success of APC in Nigeria.
