All appears to be set for the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Osun State on Thursday, September 1. Major Roads leading to Osogbo, the capital of the south-western Nigeria State, is receiving a face-lift, as men of the Osun Road Maintenance Agency (ORMA) are doing some patch work on the potholes along the roads.

Security is also receiving a boost, with security personnel being deployed on patrol around the city.

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to commission Osogbo High School, along Iwo Road in Osogbo during the visit.

Residents Allege Deceit 

Meanwhile, residents in the state have divergent views on the expected visit of the President.

A resident, Olatunji Gbolahan, said it was deceitful for the government to consider repairs of bad roads because the president was coming.

“The way I see it, it is a kind of deceit. Why is there a facelift now because the President is coming?

These potholes have been there for long without government doing anything. So, because of the President’s visit, we are covering the potholes, politicians are deceitful,” he said.

Mr Gbolahan suggested that the President should pay an unannounced visit to states to get the true pictures of things.

Another resident, ‎Damilola Adeyemi, believes the anticipated visit of the President has triggered quick completion of some abandoned projects to show that the government was working.

“Traffic is beginning to build up everywhere because of the emergency patching of the road leading to the venue of the ceremony, all these is just to impress the president,” he pointed out.

For Gideon Loyede there is merriment across the state. “It is a welcome visit we should have this kind of visit every month. If this is all it takes to take care of our bad roads, we welcome Mr President to Osun State.”

The Osogbo High School expected to be commissioned by President Buhari is under the O-Schools Programme of the administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
