Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola has announced that going by the level of his administration’s commitment against speedy development and physical growth, it would be hard for opposition parties in the state to contest future elections.

Oyetola made this known at the weekend during the Celebratory Banquet reception organised in his honour and for his immediate predecessor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, who is presently the Minister of Interior, at Government House, Osogbo.
He added that the resources of the state will also be channelled to things that will impact positively on the lives of the residents, and as well help to set the state on the path of socioeconomic, infrastructure and political growth and development.
While reflecting on some of the challenges he faced during and after the governorship election, he acknowledged God’s intervention in his case as well as lauded Aregbesola for what he termed enduring legacy of his administration.
Oyetola who reflected on the circumstances, hurdles and challenges that confronted him before ascending the office described his emergence at the poll and victory at the court as divine.
“I am extremely elated to be honoured today alongside my predecessor who is now the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. This is another great thing in the history of our state.
“My emergence at the poll and our subsequent victory at the court was a clear manifestation that truly God’s will always come to fruition.
“It is God that sent us to govern the state and I thank God that we have been following the path He laid for us as reflected in the wonderful things that He had allowed us to do and to be doing in the last nine months of our administration.
“I am happy that I was part of the last administration and I am equally happy to have worked with my immediate predecessor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola who God used to create modern Osun.
“Our focus is to continue to do things that will make the confidence that our people have in us permanent and which will help to hold progressives in government because we believe strongly that one way to empower the masses are one’s side is to continue to prioritise their welfare.
