A delegation NPOWER team has praised the Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola for the massive infrastructural projects embarked upon in the state.
This was revealed on Monday, when the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation/Youth Employment in the Office of the Vice President, Mr. Afolabi Imoukhuede visited several areas in the state as part of a three-day tour to evaluate the NPOWER volunteers and engage stakeholders in the state.
Afolabi commended the government, describing the infrastructural turnaround of the state as simply amazing, “It’s my first time in Osun in a long while, but I must confess, the infrastructure development across the state is revolutionary and simply amazing.”
“The fact that Osun is one of the list earners from FAAC, yet has been able to put all these up (referring to the Ataoja Government High School, Osogbo and the nearby November 27 Bridge and interchange), is really commendable.”
Afolabi’s team visited Olorunda Middle School where 25 NPOWER volunteers are presently serving, health centers and some farms settlements on the first day of the tour to interact with the volunteers and stakeholders.
