The Government of Osun State has described its recent critical intervention and emergency maintenance of 25 roads spanning 200km across the State, as part of the commitment of the Oyetola-led administration to prioritize the welfare of citizens.
The government debunked insinuations that it was fixing roads as election bait, adding that its infrastructural interventions had been a sustained effort that even Coronavirus could not disrupt.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Works and Transport, Hussein Olatoke Olaniyan, while addressing a press conference in Osogbo on Wednesday, said the fact that the election was six months away doesn’t mean that governance should stop.
Olaniyan, who described Oyetola’s administration as responsible and responsive, said the government could not afford to leave its people to continue to suffer untold hardship caused by those roads.
He appealed for the cooperation of citizens with the government, towards ensuring prompt completion of the critical intervention and emergency maintenance projects before the rainy season.
