The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has once again reiterated the readiness of his administration to make life easy for residents of the state.

The Governor also disclosed plans by his administration to launch palliatives to cushion the effects of subsidy removal on the people of the state.

He disclosed this on Friday during a visit by a former governor of the state, Olagunsoye Oyinlola and other stakeholders of the Osun Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

While stressing that he was aiming at running a government of the people, the Governor added that his administration has been working in line with his election promises and the agenda of the party.

In his words, “We are implementing programmes and projects in education, health and infrastructures. What the APC could not achieve in four years, we have achieved in under seven months.

“We have positioned the public service, built roads, bridges and channelisation. We have commenced payment of salary and pension debt.

“Your (PDP) government has launched the Osun digital economy agenda. Abandoned projects are being completed. Your government is beating old governance records within so short a period.”

Disclosing his plans to cushion the impact of fuel subsidy removal on residents of the state, Adeleke pointed out that he will soon introduce public transport buses.

“We are working on adjusting work hours and days. We want to make life easy and enjoyable for our people.”

Responding on behalf of the stakeholders, Oyinlola disclosed that Adeleke in his seven months in office has proved skeptics wrong.

“Governor Adeleke has surprised even his worst critics. His performance impresses all and it has strengthened the party and the state. We commend the Governor and his team.”
