The All Progressives Congress (APC) standard bearer in this week’s governorship election in Osun State, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola, has promised to prioritise the needs of the people of Iwo/OlaOluwa/Ayedire Federal Constituency, if he becomes governor.
Oyetola made the pledge yesterday when he addressed the party’s mega rally in the constituency.
The APC candidate pledged to construct the Iwo-Osogbo road which has almost become impassable for motorists and some Iwo township roads in bad shape.
Welcomed by his supporters, who cheered him and his campaign team as he entered the venue of the mega rally, Oyetola said the paucity of fund affected the plan by the incumbent governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, to carry out monumental projects in the area.
Assuring that he would attend to their needs promptly, Oyetola said whatever that is due to the zone will always be provided for its people and “what you have been enjoying under this administration will continue under my watch.”
He said his being in government is as good as having their son in power, adding that every part of the state will become his constituency as soon as he becomes the governor.
He advised the people to use their Permanent Voter Cards wisely because “that is your guarantee to good governance and a secure future.” Aregbesola, who spoke briefly at the rally, assured that Oyetola is the best candidate to take the state to the next level.
He said the people should see the election as an opportunity for them to make continuation of good governance the bedrock of the state development.
The governor said with Oyetola’s profile, which he noted had reflected in his performance in the private and public sectors, would assist him consolidate the gains of his administration.
