2010 – 2018
The GOVERNMENT UNUSUAL years.
Delivering mass prosperity at great cost.
How Osun did it?
From 20,000 social Jobs in 100 days, to School Feeding for over 250,000 elementary kids to the, ‘State of Osun’, ‘Ipinle Omoluabi’ rebranding, the 8 Years of Aregbesola’s print on Osun can be safely labeled Radical, Transformational and perhaps Controversial.
In the last 8 Years, Osun, A State in the bottom 12 in terms of revenue has featured top 5 in all major Prosperity/Poverty ranking of States in Nigeria either by Nigeria and International ranking institutions.
2016 – 1st Lowest Incidence of Poverty by the UNDP Human Development Indices Report.
2017 – 1st Lowest poverty rate according to the Misery Index 2017 by Bismarck Rewane’s Financial Derivatives Company Ltd.

2019 – Top 5, Multidimensional Poverty Index by the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative.
2019 – Top 3, The poverty and inequality by the National Bureau of Statistics NBS.
So what did Osun do right? The social programmes, The Infrastructure, Debts for Development, Austerity or Luck.
