President Muhammad Buhari is due to visit Osun State on Thursday on a one-day working visit to commission a school project built by Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
Ahead of the visit, the State Government has urged the people of the state to demonstrate the Omoluabi (virtuous) ethos they have been known for as they welcome the president to the state.
A statement by the Director, Bureau of Communication and Strategy in the Office of the Governor, Semiu Okanlawon, stated that the President would during the visit inaugurate the newly-built 3,000 students capacity Osogbo Government High School, Osogbo.
According to the statement, President Buhari’s visit will be a testimony to the landmark achievements in the almost six years of Governor Rauf Aregbesola as well as the good working relationship between the State and the Federal Government.
The statement reads in part: “From our own corner of this great country, we are poised to set examples on how to solve many of the national social economic and political complications confronting us. The magnificent Osogbo Government High School President Muhammadu Buhari will be commissioning on Thursday is illustrative of the magnitude of our ideas and interventions in the education sector. We remain unrelenting as we continue our assault on delayed infrastructure in our education sector and all other sectors.
“We urge the good people of the state to maintain the peace that the state is noted for during and after the President’s visit. We ask them to give a rousing welcome to our amiable President.
“We call on our people particularly the people of Osogbo and it’s environs, to come out in their great numbers and give our President a befitting welcome during his visit to our state.
“Mr. President’s visit is historic because it marks the first official Presidential visit to the state since we assumed office as the Governor of this great state.”
