The Caretaker Chairman of Itesiwaju Local Government, Otu, Oyo State, Hon. Adeniji Olarinre, has declared that the All Progressives Congress (APC) government in both the local government and the state have delivered the dividends of democracy to all the nooks and crannies of the state.
Hon Adeniji made the declaration while monitoring the ongoing rehabilitation of General Hospital road at Okaka.
According to the council boss; “Our major concern as a party is to make the people happy. The target from day one is the communal joy and not to enrich a few people through corruption at the expense of countless others. That is why we are embarking on projects that will touch the lives of many.”
He thanked the Almighty God for giving the state a governor like Senator Abiola Ajimobi. “There is development at the grassroots because we have a visionary leader. Our amiable governor’s marching order to bring unprecedented development to all the local government areas has been the driving force of our success.”
Hon. Adeniji noted that for a very long time, the Okaka-Saki road junction of General Hospital road has not been motorable.
He continued; “Our regime is scoring another first because we are the one opening up the road again. We have found solution to the marshy area by constructing a very big reinforce concrete box culvert on the marshy area. This is a serious project that will provide a better and faster access road to the major health facility in Okaka.
As soon as the people of Okaka saw the Chairman’s entourage they joined him in the monitoring exercise.
A spokesperson of the youths in the area, Mr. Seun Adediran, lauded the Chairman and the executive governor of the state for performing wonder on the road.
He added: “We have almost believed that this road will remain impassable because of this massive marshy spot and the volume of water. Hon Adeniji Olarinre has shown that with strong political will, the impossible can be made possible.”
