Congratulating the people for what he described as their genuine efforts to build an independent, virile, virtuous and productive ‘Yoruba State’, Aregbesola pledged his government’s irrevocable commitment to the cause of ensuring the realisation of the very dreams for the creation of the state.
The governor spoke through the Director, Bureau of Communication and Strategy, Semiu Okanlawon, on the commemoration of the 24th anniversary of the creation of Osun State.
He assured that the Aregbesola-led administration is committed to bringing government closer to the people and igniting a revolutionary development paradigm that will set the state on an enduring pedestal.
Osun State was created in 1991 from the old Oyo State. The state’s name is derived from the River Osun, the venerated natural spring that is the manifestation of the Yoruba goddess of the same name.
