Osun At 32: Governor Adeleke Pledges Legacy Of Prosperity

Governor Ademola Adeleke has emphasised the importance of securing a legacy of prosperity for future generations in Osun State.

Gatekeepers News reports that speaking on the occasion of the state’s 32nd anniversary of formation, Adeleke urged the people to remain steadfast in their commitment to progress.

Reflecting on the state’s foundation, the governor acknowledged the determination of the founding fathers in establishing a vision that led to the creation of the state. He highlighted the collective effort that went into achieving self-governance and development.

“Today marks a significant milestone in the history of our great state. As we reflect upon the journey, let us acknowledge what shaped our state and chart a course for a brighter and more prosperous future.

“The struggle started as early as the 1950s with a series of commissions of inquiry in the old Oyo State.

“The doggedness of the founding fathers was rewarded on August 27th, 1991, when General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida created nine states, including Osun State, with Osogbo as the capital.

“As we embark on this journey, let us remain unwavering in our resolve to leave a legacy of prosperity for generations to come,” he said.

Adeleke emphasised the state’s achievements across various fields in the past three decades and underscored his administration’s accomplishments under a comprehensive five-point program.

His priorities include worker welfare, education, affordable healthcare, social security, and human capital development.

He attributed the state’s progress to its skilled workforce, which has significantly contributed to both local and national advancement.

The governor used the anniversary as an opportunity to call on the people to pursue long-term economic growth. He outlined strategic initiatives such as expanding transportation networks, modernizing agricultural practices, and supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through financial incentives, technical assistance, and market access.

“By working together with determination and unity, we can build an Osun State that thrives economically, socially, and culturally,” the governor remarked.

On August 27, 1991, the then-military head of state, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, split Osun State from the former Oyo State.
