Rauf AregbesolaGov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has said the proposed airport at Ido-Osun in Egbedore Local Government Area of the state will be developed into an aircraft maintenance hub.
A statement issued in Osogbo on Sunday by Semiu Okanlawon, the Press Secretary to the governor, said Mr. Aregbesola spoke at a meeting with the Association of Advertising Agencies of Nigeria during its 42nd Annual General Meeting.
The statement quoted the governor as saying that the state government had signed an agreement with two hanger operators, “knowing that aircraft maintenance business is a money spinning investment.
“It will not take time to develop the airport to aircraft maintenance hub in Africa; we only have just three aircraft maintenance hangers in the whole of Africa”.
“We need not go to Europe or America to get the aircraft in Africa maintained; all we need to attract that business is to develop the facility that we have in Ido-Osun.
“We have signed an agreement with two hanger operators knowing that aircraft maintenance business is a money spinning investment,” it quoted him as saying.
The governor said his administration would continue to remain focused and not be distracted in its commitment to turn around the fortune of the state, where workers are owed salaries for several months.

  • Let payment of workers salaries be of priority to osun govt than chasing rat when its house is burning. That’s why Nigerians should construe APC’s “change” slogan as a word with paradoxical meaning. change can be positive or negative. Osun state, the ball is on your court. which one did the present “change” bring to you?

    • If only you know what this man has done for Osun State, he is secretly transforming the state into the China of Africa. Just wait and see in a couple of years.
