Osun 2022: I’ll fulfil my campaign promises to electorate - Oyetola

Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola

The Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola, has that if re-elected in July 16 he will never betray his conscience in fulfilling his campaign promises to the people.

Oyetola said the falsehood being peddled around by the opposition parties that he would not fulfil his campaign promises when re-elected, should be disregarded.

The governor said this during an engagement programme with members of the Osun State Automobile Technician Association yesterday in Osogbo.

Represented by his Special Adviser on Civic Engagement, Mr Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, Oyetola said his journey into politics was for service delivery and not for personal gain or deception.

The governor, who specifically assured civil servants and retirees in the state of his commitment to their welfare, urged them not to fall into the antics of the opposition parties.

Oyetola said since the beginning of his administration in the last three and half years, he had not renege in the payment of pensions and salaries of workers.

He said the rumour by the opposition parties that he would stop the payment when re-elected is a dirty politics taken too far.

The governor, who said he would still do more in his second term, urged the electorate not to allow desperate politicians to deceive them.

“Since the beginning of our administration, we had spent N43 billion on payment of pension for retirees and we will not stop.

“Osun is also one of the few states in the country that had implemented the minimum wage and we had been consistent in the payment.

“Those who are spreading falsehood that I will stop paying attention to the welfare of workers and our senior citizen are not to be trusted because they have nothing to offer,” he said.

The governor further explained that when re-elected he would consolidate on the achievements his administration had made in the last three and half years.

Oyetola said the giant stride of the government in the area of education, infrastructure, health, empowerment, and rural development, among others would not stop.

The governor, however, urged the electorate to get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) to support him in the coming election

Oyetola said that he will not betray the trust of the people nor his conscience in service delivery in his second term in office.

Oyetola then urged members of the association to support his re-election, adding that he will continue to provide the enabling environment for their businesses to thrive.

In his remarks, the chairman of the association, Ajibola Akinola, commended the governor for the strides he had accomplished in infrastructure and amenities across the state.

Akinola, however, appealed to the governor to assist members of the association with more soft loans to boost their businesses.

He also promised that the association would support his re-election for the continuation of the good work in the state.
