How Governor Oyetola transformed Osun state
Adesiyan, popularly known as Jallo, added that it is obvious, even to the blind that there is a new sheriff in the town who understands the real essence of governance and what it takes to make lives enjoyable for the common masses.
"Governor Gboyega Oyetola is indeed a blessing to the whole of Osun state. He is an administrator per excellence. Despite meager resources accruable to the state from the federation account, the governor uses his knowledge and creative ingenuity to achieve some projects that some of his counterparts could not achieve.
"His achievements have continued to be a source of worry to his political adversaries. But rather than relent on his good works, the governor focuses on how to write his name in gold before he leaves office.
"I want to urge the good people of Osun state to reciprocate this kind gesture by reelecting Governor Oyetola at the forthcoming governorship election in the state. They should not be deterred by the antics of some political elements who are bent rubbishing the good work of our amiable governor."
Ex-minister Adesiyan sends powerful message to Aregbesola's group
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Adesiyan warned a factional group in the Osun chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), The Osun Progressives (TOP), against causing more trouble in the state.
It was reported that he advised the TOP and its leader, Rauf Aregbesola, the minister of interior, should tow a path of honour before it is too late.
Aregbesola, who is the immediate past governor of the state and his group, are said to be publicly opposing Governor Gboyega Oyetola's second term ambition.
