6 years Anniversary: Akintola hails Ajimobi, says ‘your stewardship has been excellent’
The six years of Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, in the saddle have been excellent, according to legal luminary, Chief Niyi Akintola, SAN.
Citing remarkable infrastructural development and sustained peace that the state has enjoyed since Ajimobi assumed office six years ago, Akintola said that Governor deserves accolades.
He noted that prior to the assumption of office as Governor by Ajimobi, Oyo State had been wracked by street violence, expressing joy that peace has now been restored.
Akintola, in a statement issued by his media assistant, Ayodele Olaitan, further lauded the several people-oriented programmes of the Governor, especially the recent health insurance scheme which, he noted, will make healthcare delivery much cheaper and more readily for the common man.
He commended the governor for the various well-executed road and other infrastructural projects across the state, especially those marked out for inauguration to mark Ajimobi’s six years of stewardship as Governor.
The projects listed to be inaugurated include: Gate-Airport-Alakia, Oke-Adu-Iwo road, Idi-Ape-Akobo-Oju-Irin, and Eleyele-Ologuneru-Eruwa.
According to Akintola, at completion the roads projects will ease the movement of people and goods across that state.
Akintola also expressed pleasure with the activation of the pacesetter free trade zone, which he believes will move the state forward in the area of industrialization and job creation.
On culture, he lauded the pronouncement by the governor that all students should don local attires to school on the world cultural day, noting that it would go a long way in reviving our cultural heritage.
