Mohammed Taoheed reports For TrackNews

As the July 16, 2022 long awaited gubernatorial election in Osun State approaches, Governor Adegoyega Oyetola has stated that he will never betray his conscience in fulfilling his campaign promises to the people, if re-elected as they are in the party’s manifesto.

Speaking with the press men, the Special Adviser on Civic Engagement, Mr. Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, who represented the Governor, declared this during an engagement programme with members of Osun State Automobile Technician Association yesterday in Osogbo.

Oyetola, who gave a standing assurance to civil servants and retirees in the state of his commitment to their welfare, claimed that his journey into politics was for service delivery and not for personal gain or deception.

His words: “Since the beginning of our administration, we had spent N43 billion on payment of pension for retirees and we will not stop. Osun is also one of the few states in the country that had implemented the minimum wage and we had been consistent in the payment.

“Those who are spreading falsehood that I will stop paying attention to the welfare of workers and our senior citizen are not to be trusted because they have nothing to offer,” he said.

In response, the Chairman of the association, Mr. Ajibola Akinola, praised the governor with thanks for the strides he had accomplished in infrastructure and amenities across the state.
