Why I Supported Oyetola’s Ministerial Nomination – Gov Adeleke

Oyetola Osun

Osun State Governor, Southwest Nigeria Senator Ademola Adeleke said he supported the ministerial nomination of his predecessor, Gboyega Oyetola in the overall interest of Osun State and her indigenes.

Gatekeepers News reports that Adeleke said while reacting to questions from reporters at the end of the meeting of the PDP Governors’ Forum in Abuja.

The governor said the election process was over and it was time for all Osun people to join hands for the development of the state.

The deputy senate minority leader, Senator Lere Oyewumi, had announced the unanimous support of the Osun senators for Mr Oyetola, citing a directive of the state sovernor.

The governor said; “ I told our senators to support Mr Oyetola. There is no need to embarrass him by withdrawing the support of the three PDP senators. We have a state to develop and my focus on that goal is total.

“Political maturity is needed to build the Osun of our dreams. Poverty knows no party difference. So, we must support each other at all levels as long as Osun’s interest is at the center stage.”

On his plans for the state, the governor said he just unveiled the Osun Business Growth Initiative, adding; “Our administration is working hard to develop the state business sector. So we need new partnerships with several federal and international agencies.

“I have the sense of urgency to change this label of civil service state. We want our industrial sector to grow. So we have to develop the abandoned free zone. This will drive inflow of investment. We hope to get the SME industrial clusters off the ground. We need mini-industrial parks all over the Senatorial district. We are reviewing the Omoluabi economic zone to make it truly functional.”
