The immediate past Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, on Monday, inaugurated some road projects executed by Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola in Osogbo, the state capital.

The newly-completed roads inaugurated by Fayemi include; Osogbo-Agunbelewo-Okinni-Ilobu-Ifon-Osun and Kelebe-Osogbo-Iragbiji roads. 

Speaking at the event, Fayemi acknowledged the achievements recorded by the Oyetola-led government in the state, noting that the administration had recorded commendable achievements despite limited resources.

He said, “I was very delighted when I was asked if I would be available to honour you with my presence as the Special Guest of Honour at this inauguration ceremony. But I said this to Mr Governor in private, ‘You need to know how much all of our colleagues admire you so much for what we called the magic wand?’

“I know this, as the immediate past Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, we know much of this state by way of the allocation. We know the burden of what you have been carrying since you assumed office, and if we are to do a mathematical equation vis-a-vis what you have been able to deliver on infrastructure, social welfare, and good governance among others, you can only be a magician because your mathematics cannot produce an appropriate answer.

“In your own case, 2 plus 2 is 10, whereas you have the 6 is what we called magic. I must commend your creativity, innovation and huge sacrifice. People will not realize it now but I can assure you that history will be kind to you; posterity will serve you right as our people will eventually go to recognize all the sacrifices you have made on their behalf. You have been able to demonstrate the capacity to make good governance available.”

In his remarks, Oyetola reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to continuously setting Osun on the world map of socioeconomic development, noting that the successful completion of most of the road projects was in fulfilment of the desire of his administration to fix failed road infrastructure across the state.

“In the last three weeks, there have been collaboration and celebration of road infrastructure between Governors of Osun and Oyo.

“The feat is a fulfilment of our collective resolve to bring development to the South West despite political differences. I thank my brother governors in the South West for their leadership across our region and especially Governor Fayemi for demonstrating the same feat across the country during his tenure as the chairman of the country’s governors forum,” he said.
