The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has urged residents of the state to come out in their numbers and give a rousing welcome to President Muhammadu Buhari, who will be visiting the state tomorrow (Thursday).
In a statement issued yesterday in Osogbo, the state capital, the Osun APC Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun, said the citizenry have a duty to support the president in his effort to rid the country of corruption.
He added that corruption is the cause of the economic collapse that has brought hardship to the majority of the citizenry.
According to Famodun, Osun joined the rest of Nigerians to vote massively for change and the people’s hope that the president would effect change remain unshaken in spite of the difficult challenges that economic recession poses.
“We in Osun are not in any doubt that a bright future lies ahead for the state under the Presidency of Muhammadu Buhari and his team, who are working tirelessly to reverse the economic downturn that has hit Nigeria so badly, especially Osun State.
“Since the APC came to power, Osun has experienced revolutionary changes in human capital development, educational renewal, commercial expansion, agricultural invigoration, massive youth employment and empowerment, including environmental sanitation like no other time in Osun’s history”, the chairman asserted.
He urged the president to see for himself, the progress that has been made in Osun under the visionary leadership of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
Famodun also called on President Buhari to do all in his powers to help lighten the state’s burden, which, he said, “is among the worst hit by the country’s economic difficulties”.
