Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has promised that his administration would rescue the state from “overdependence on federal allocation.”

He said his plan was to turn the state to what he described as the “economic hub of the South-West.”

The governor made the pledge in a state broadcast to mark his administration’s third anniversary.

According to him, the state government has commenced efforts to exploit the state’s natural resources and translate them to wealth.

He noted that the government’s efforts are already yielding positive results with gold production set to commence soon in the state.

Oyetola added that the state government is rehabilitating roads across the nine federal constituencies of the state to improve on road network, open up the rural areas and ease movement of people and their produce to ensure rapid socio-economic development.

He also said the government had sustained the construction of major road projects inherited from the immediate past administration, adding that “we will continue to fund the dualisation of Gbongan-Akoda Dual Carriage Way, as well as Old Garage (Osogbo)-Ikirun-Ila-Odo-Erinle, which, together, are federal roads spanning a total length of 66.8 km.”

He disclosed that the government had also concluded arrangement to begin work on the construction/rehabilitation of roads in different parts of the State including Iree, Inisa, Ife, Ijesa Land, Osogbo, Olorunda, Irepodun, Orolu, Ikire, Oba Ile and Oba Oke.  ,,
