Some residents of Osun State have called on the new governor of the state, Alhaji Adegboyega Oyetola, to take measures aimed at ensuring regular payment of salaries for workers as well as an improved living condition for all residents.
The residents, who spoke with newsmen today in Osogbo, expressed optimism that the new administration will herald a new dawn in the state. A civil servant, Mr Segun Efunkunle, said that his expectation from Oyetola is a better welfare package and prompt payment of full salaries.
Also speaking, a trader, Mrs Susan Egbejimi, urged the new governor to put in place viable economic policies that would attract investors and provide opportunities for the people, thereby stimulating the economy of the state. A roadside mechanic, Mr Taofeek Abdullazeez, urged Oyetola to ensure that artisans and traders enjoy patronage from workers through regular payment of salaries.
The state’s Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Adepele-Ojo administered the oath of office on the new Chief Executive of the state today at the Osogbo Stadium shortly after Mr Benedict Alabi was sworn-in as the state Deputy Governor.
