A governorship aspirant of the All Progressive Congress (APC) for the September 22nd gubernatorial election in Osun State, Alhaji Adegboyega Oyetola has promised that his administration will develop the local economy, boost agriculture and attract foreign direct investment to Osun if he is given the opportunity to succeed Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
Oyetola who is currently the Chief of Staff to Governor Aregbesola said this in Osogbo, the state capital. He promised to make Osun the main hub of Agriculture in Nigeria.
According to him “I know that a high number of our people are traders and commercial entrepreneurs. We will develop the local economy, ensure free flow of domestic capital and build on the potential foreign direct investment that will accrue through strategic planning, development partnership and prudent management of land, labour, entrepreneurial and human resources.”
“We will give further attention to strategic infrastructural projects; link up our township and city markets with other township and city markets in the southwestern region in particular and across Nigeria in general, all in a bid to expand the base of the Osun economy”, he said.
Oyetola noted that government alone cannot substantially provide infrastructure for teeming masses without partnering with the private sector.
The aspirant promised that he would work with the private sector and the Nongovernmental Organizations to identify and prioritize the socioeconomic and other needs of the state.
He also promised to deploy a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model to consolidate work on the robust and strategic road-map of Aregbesola’s administration to industrialize the state and make it a better place to live in.
