Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, on Tuesday, said he has delivered his campaign promises to the people of the five local governments in Ogbomosoland of the state.
Makinde said this while reassuring the electorate that if he is re-elected, the state will experience more positive developments under the Omituntun 2.0 mantra.
A statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa, quoted the governor as saying this while addressing the party faithful in Ogbomosoland.
Makinde maintained that he had delivered on his promises to the people of the zone, adding that he will consolidate on the achievements so far recorded when re-elected on March 11, 2023.
The governor urged the residents of Ogbomoso North, Ogbomoso South and Oriire Local Governments to vote for him and the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogbomosoland in the National Assembly and state Assembly elections.
He said while campaigning in 2019, he promised to ensure that LAUTECH is solely owned by Oyo State and the administration has achieved that.
“When I came here to flag off our campaign in 2019, I promised you that we would work on ending the crisis in LAUTECH by ensuring that it is solely owned by Oyo State. Have we not achieved that?
“We promised to build infrastructure that targets our economy. You can see that LAUTECH-Under G Road that we constructed and the Ogbomoso-Fapote-Iseyin Road.
“In the education sector, we promised to improve the standard of education and the first thing we did was to scrap the N3,000 education levy imposed by the previous government.
“You can also see the evidence of our infrastructure building in the education sector, as we have built model schools, classrooms and other facilities as part of our agenda to improve the sector.”
Also speaking during campaign stops at Ahoro Dada, Olokoto, Tewure and Ikoyi-Ile communities of Oriire Local Government, Makinde assured that his new government under Omituntun 2.0 will bring more good governance.
The governor declared that all the positive developments recorded so far were only the tip of the iceberg and that he would go on to do more under Omituntun 2.0.
“From Ogbomoso, it took us 20 minutes to get to Ahoro Dada and this is due to the Ogbomoso-Fapote-Iseyin Road, which this administration is constructing. Now, our farmers can take our farm produce to the markets in urban centres.
“I also promised there would be one PHC in each ward and we have done this. I vowed to secure life and properties and you can all see what the Amotekun is doing. We have put in place a communication network for our security agencies.
“All of these have been achieved under Omituntun 1.0. So, we want to upgrade to Omituntun 2.0.”
