President Buhari may visit Osun tomorrow

President Muhammad Buhari is expected to pay a one day working visit to Osun State on Thursday.
A statement by the Director, Bureau of Communication and Strategy in the Office of the Governor, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon stated that the President will during the visit, commission the newly built 3,000 students capacity Osogbo Government High School, Osogbo.
According to the statement, President Buhari’s visit to Osun will be a testimony to the landmark achievements in the almost six years of Governor Rauf Aregbesola as well as the good working relationship between Osun and the Federal Government.
The statement read in part, “From our own corner of this great country, we are poised to set examples on how to solve many of the national social economic and political complications confronting us. The magnificent Osogbo Government High School President Muhammadu Buhari will be commissioning on (Thursday) today is illustrative of the magnitude of our ideas and interventions in the education sector. We remain unrelenting as we continue our assault on delayed infrastructure in our education sector and all other sectors.
“We urge the good people of the state to maintain the peace that the state is noted for during and after the President’s visit. We ask them to give a rousing welcome to our amiable President.‎
‎“We call on our people particularly the people of Osogbo and it’s environs, to come out in their great numbers and give our President a befitting welcome during his visit to our state.‎
“Mr. President’s visit is historic because it marks the first official Presidential visit to the state since we assumed office as the Governor of this great state”. The statement expressed.
‎Similarly, a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, APC, in Osun state, Elder Peter Babalola urged the federal government to maximise opportunities the visit presents to collaborate with the state on some of the initiatives of the present administration.
In a statement in Osogbo, Babalola urged the president to bring in A-list of its technocrats to establish synergy with Osun in areas where resounding successes have been recorded.
Noting that era of frosty relationship between Osun and the federal government had passed, Babalola, who is the chairman of Local Government Service Commission, listed areas he would expect collaboration with federal government to include youth empowerment, O’ Renewal and School Feeding.
Also, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state advised Governor Aregebesola to maximize the occasion of Preside Buhari’s visit to table before him series of woes facing the state and the citizens rather than presenting himself as a fulfilled and a performing governor.
According to the Party in a statement signed by its spokesman, Prince Diran Odeyemi, “the President if allowed to inspect Ido Osun Aerodrome, the International market in Dagbolu, Osogbo/ Kwara Boundary road and Osogbo/Gbongan road among other abandoned projects may wish to assist the state in resuscitating them for the benefit of the citizens”
“We heard it on good authority that the President will be commissioning Osogbo Grammar School but would expect governor Aregbesola to tell Nigerians the total cost of the building and the source of its finance” the party declared.
The state chairman of APC, Prince Gboyega Famodun called on the citizens of the state to come out in their numbers to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari.
The chairman said that all Nigerians have a duty to support Mr. President in his effort to clean up the country of corruption that is primarily the cause of the economic collapse that has brought unbelievable hardship to the majority of people in this country.
