The Osun State primary election committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has lauded the governor of the state, Gboyega Oyetola for his performance, especially in Infrastructural development.
The Chairman of the committee and governor of Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, made the commendation when he submitted the primary election committee’s report to the APC’s Caretaker committee at the party’s headquarters Abuja.
Recalled, the APC held its Osun State Governorship Primary Election on February 19 and Governor Gboyega Oyetola, who is running for a second term, emerged winner.
Governor Abdulrazaq stated that the APC and the administration of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola were alive, strong and popular in Osun State, judging by the massive and peaceful voters turnout for the Direct Primary Election in the state.
“The Primary Election Committee saw it as a privilege to have been appointed to undertake this exercise on behalf of the APC.
We also saw it as a considerable challenge, seeing the press and social media reports on the happenings in Osun before and while we received the appointment.
“I am glad that I had solid support from my team, and they were up for the challenge.
It seemed like a walk in the park, but a lot of work was done.
We are glad that we could deliver a credible election where all the stakeholders and people of Osun are happy.
“I must report back to the party that the APC is alive and robust in Osun.
The governor is doing well, and the party is doing exceedingly well.
Aregbesola has done well, and Oyetola has built on it magnificently.
The road infrastructures are superb.
We saw bridges being constructed, schools, human capital development.
Incidentally, I made enquiries on the FAAC allocations.
“There used to be a deduction of about a 2.
4 billion naira monthly.
That has reduced as well, slightly over 1 billion naira monthly.
The State government has repaid another 70 billion in loans.
So the state is on the right track, and it showed in the primary’s outcome that the government is in touch with the people.
I urge Nigerians to visit Osun State.
It is arguably the most peaceful state in Nigeria, of course after Kwara state,” Governor Abdulrazaq stated.
The Chairman of the Caretaker Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni, represented by the committee’s Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, thanked the committee for undertaking the assignment on behalf of the party.
“I receive this report on behalf of the National Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee, His Excellency Mai Mala Buni.
He has asked me to thank you (Governor Abdulrazaq) for your humility by agreeing to leave your responsibility in Kwara state to serve the party.
We are indeed grateful.
We have read and heard that Your Excellency and the entire committee did a fantastic job; you represented the party well.
“The character that Your Excellency has exhibited is because of a proper and classical upbringing.
You have shown this in the administration of your state and the assignment you have undertaken on behalf of the party in Osun State.
We are very grateful, Your Excellency,” Senator Akpanudoedehe.
