To mitigate the impact of the loss of fuel subsidies, Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke has announced that his administration will shortly provide free bus trips and change working days for public employees.
On Friday, the Governor of the state delivered remarks at a meeting of stakeholders for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) held at the party secretariat in Osogbo. In his remarks, the Governor stated that the state government is trying to make life easier for the people who live in the state.
“The Osun State Government is working hard to bring public transportation buses into service. We are now working on adjusting the work days and hours. Our goal is to make life simpler and more pleasurable for the people who live here.
This administration has been operating in a manner that is consistent with the objectives of the party as well as our election promises. What the APC was unable to accomplish in four years, we have accomplished in less than seven months through the implementation of programs and initiatives in the areas of education, health, and infrastructure.
“We have positioned the public service, built roads, bridges, and channelization,” said the president. We have started making payments on the debt incurred by salaries and pensions. I want to reassure you that we will not give up until we have accomplished what we set out to do.
The governor, in his address to the various party stakeholders, stated that he intends to run an inclusive government that does not exclude anyone, saying, “We will all be accommodated.” Everyone will be treated fairly by us. Both then and now, I am grateful for your support. This is the government that you chose. He promised that in the end, all of us would be rewarded for our efforts.
In their separate statements, former Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola, Osun Assembly Speaker Adewale Egbedun, and Senator Kamarudeen Oyewumi all praised the governor for delivering effective administration in a relatively short amount of time in office.
They all emphasized how important it is for the many party stakeholders to have love, unity, and focus in order to maintain the state’s current stride toward quality leadership.
Party stakeholders from across the state, including elected lawmakers in the state and National Assembly, as well as party stalwarts from both the municipal and state levels, were present at the meeting.
In his earlier remarks of welcome, the Chairman of the party, Sunday Bisi, stated that the purpose of the gathering was to create unity within the party and to guarantee that the government does not lose focus on its program that is driven by the people.
