Governor Adegboyega Oyetola praised Osun Assembly Speaker Timothy Owoeye for his genuine passion for his administration and for generously giving back to his constituents in the spirit of the season and in line with the state’s development agenda.
The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Benedict Alabi, described the multi-million empowerment initiative as fitting support for his administration’s commitment to improving the lives of Osun citizens.
“I would like, on behalf of the government and people of Osun, to especially thank Mr. President for establishing this empowerment program to give back to the people in the spirit of the season and in line with our program of development.
“I must also thank him for his exemplary personal and leadership qualities that have enabled our state to enjoy an impressive legislative performance, and for both functional and peaceful relations between the executive and the judiciary without compromising our responsibilities.
“Mr. Speaker, we are immensely proud of you and all members of the House for the good work you are doing for our beloved state.
“Today’s event, once again, speaks volumes about your true passion for our government’s determination to improve the quality of life of our many citizens.
“I would like to congratulate all the beneficiaries of today’s event. I must mention that this program rightly supports our administration’s commitment to improving the lives of our citizens.
“Since taking office, our development agenda has focused on building a revitalized economy that is based on the aggressive pursuit of a fully diversified economy, the provision of the necessary infrastructure to support socio-economic development and the empowerment of our people to become active creators of value and wealth.
“We are convinced that our quest to build the Osun of our dream is only possible as long as our people are empowered to contribute to the development of society,” Oyetola said.
The event organized by the Timothy Owoeye Foundation was the second structured empowerment program organized by the speaker, the first being the purchase of 200 JAMB forms for indigent students in 2019.
