Osun NYCN declares support for Adeleke, hails his achievements



The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Osun State Chapter, has declared support for Gov. Ademola Adeleke’s achievements since his assumption office five months ago.

The NYCN, in a statement signed by its caretaker Chairman, Mr Abdulmajeed Oyeniyi, said that Adeleke had redirected the state government’s efforts toward meeting the needs of the people within 100 days of his administration.

The statement said the governor, within the space of 100 days, had made remarkable progress in terms of social and infrastructure development.

The group, therefore, declared its support for the governor, saying it was optimistic that the state would, in no small measure, witness unprecedented development within his first term in the office.

“Upon assumption of office, the governor took a bold step by making provision for potable water in each of the 333 wards in the state and constructed 20-kilometre roads across the state.

“He had also presented the sum of N518 million to 40 communities for infrastructure development,” he said

The group also applauded the governor for his medical outreach called “Imole Surgical”; about 2,000 persons from the nine federal constituencies in the state, received free medical care.

“Our findings also revealed that the governor, since his assumption of office, had made provision for transformers and other electrical materials in communities without electricity in an ongoing project.

“Adeleke had started the payment of salaries and pension arrears from January 2016, owed by the past administrations.

“In a bid to ensure food security in the state, our governor had approved subsidies on fertilisers and other farm inputs for farmers in the state.

“He has been giving bond cheques to the contributory pensioners in the state. He has started since March 10.

“Osogb/Ikirun/Ila Odo Kwara road is another point of reference. Immediately he assumed office, the governor mobilised contractors back to the site and we are very proud of the marvelous state of that road. In fact, residents of Ikirun are very happy about the development

“Based on these laudable achievements and many more, we hereby declare our support for the People’s Governor,” he said.
