The Governor of Osun, Rauf Aregbesola has reiterated that his administration will remain focused and not distracted in its commitment to turn around the fortune of the state for good among states in Nigeria in spite of the calculated efforts of his government’s adversaries.
The governor stated this at a parley with the Association of Advertising Agencies of Nigeria (AAAN) on their 42 Annual General Meeting in Osun which held at the Government House in Osogbo, the state capital.
He noted that at this critical stage of the economy of Nigeria, all hands must be on deck to ensure that the problem of the ailing economy is solved rather than making a governor the symbol of salary default.
It was a gathering of Nigeria’s best advertising minds which had come for the parley with the Governor as part of the programme rounding off the two day AGM.
Aregbesola while speaking on the state of the nation, noted that it is unfortunate that the country is finding herself in the present position of the economy, adding that the situation must be seen by all as a national problem and not that of Osun.
He pointed out that he will not be distracted in the provision of conscious social welfare programmes for the people of the state, saying under his administration, Osun is the state with the highest development index in the country according to the National Bureau of Statistics.
Aregbesola also added that Osun is next to Niger state in the area of poverty reduction index of the statistic made available to Nigerians by the National Bureau of Statistics, Abuja in 2012.
