Aregbesola’s Various Economic Initiatives Have Turned Around Osun’s Economy – APC

Leadership and members of the ruling party in Osun state, the All Progressive Congress (APC) have commended various economic initiatives introduced by the present administration in the state, saying the programmes are serving as a stimulant for its economy to grow and develop.


According to them, Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s introduction of certain economic turnaround initiatives, had prevented the state from feeling, fully the crushing weight of economic recession ravaging the country at the moment.

Speaking at a programme tagged: “Enroute Rauf: A discourse on Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in the polity of the State of Osun”, the state chairman of the party, Gboyega Famoodun, who chaired the first session of the discourse, said introduction of initiatives like “O’ Yes”, ” O’ Reap” and School Feeding Programmes, had assisted the state in revamping its economy through creation of new spenders of money.

Through creation of new spenders that are separate from the regular salary earners, Famoodun said more money is being pumped into the state’s economy using robust economic activities.

But, the Secretary to the State Government, Moshood Adeoti, urged governor to support only aspirant capable of continuing the six-point Integral Action Plan of the present administration.

The SSG said “They should say whatever they like. Whoever wants to succeed Aregbesola must be ready to continue his six-point integral action plan.

“The policy laid down by Asiwaju Tinubu was sustained by Fashola and Ambode is building on it. That is why Lagos state is progressing. We are satisfied with the six-point integral action plan of Aregbesola and we would not allow anybody that is not ready to maintain and sustain the success achieved by the governor.”

In his remarks, Governor Rauf Aregbesola, explained that the debt profile released by Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, NEITI, was exaggerated.

He said the N165.9 billion debt as released by NEITI was nothing, compared to the development Osun has witnessed in the last six years of his administration and promised to complete all the ongoing projects before the expiration of his tenure in November, 2018.

In his welcome remarks, one of the conveners of the discourse, Rasheed Ropo Raji, said the event was organised to ensure that the ruling party does not lose sight of its humble beginning.

He said such discourse should be organised frequently for younger generation and new members to have good idea of how the enterance of Aregbesola into Osun’s politics revolutionised it and did the unthinkable of returning power to the opposition.
