Osun State Governor, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, said God has promised him that the State will rise from its doldrums.
Speaking during the thanksgiving service in honour of his wife , Mrs. Kafayat Olaitan Oyetola, at the Government House Chapel to commemorate her 61st birthday, the Governor explained that the developmental strides being recorded under his administration are testaments to God’s promise.
Oyetola added that his administration is committed to pursuing God’s mandate till Osun becomes the toast of the nation.
He called on residents to continue to support the programmes and policies of his administration towards actualizing the God-given mandate.
While delivering his homily, the Chaplain of the Osun State Government House Chapel, Reverend (Dr) O. T. Onifade, described Governor Oyetola as the light that has shone in the darkness of Osun, adding that he has cleared doubts about the ability of the All Progressives Congress to deliver the dividends of democracy in the State.
Onifade explained that the situation in Osun before Oyetola’s assumption of office, were inimical to the welfare of citizens and could be described as a time of darkness.
The clergy, who said that Oyetola has brought the qualities that made him outstanding in his professional calling to governance, noted that he is in government to serve and not to enrich himself.
According to him, Oyetola’s accomplishments over two years are stepping stones for the State to attain greatness beyond 2022.
