The monarch was quoted thus: “You have to use your wealth of experience in administrative, financial and political sectors to improve on the revenue base of the state.
“You might know that I am fully aware of the significant role you played to boost the revenue profile of Lagos State.
“You were among the few people that deployed financial professionalism and expertise to help Lagos to raise its revenue status at a time its local government allocation was seized by the Obasanjo Government during Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s tenure
“Osun is not a rich state, so, my advice for you is to use your ingenuity and the experience acquired to advance the economy of the state”.
Oyetola commended Oba Adeyemi for being supportive to his administration with prayers and advice. He described Alaafin as a man of integrity and honesty, asking him not to relent in his efforts until the region actualises her dreams.
