THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT – Osun APC assures citizens
Citizens of Osun have been urged to approach the Christmas and New Year festivities reassured that the future will certainly be bright under Governor Gboyega Oyetola-led APC government.
According to the party, ‘indications from the outgoing year 2019 presage a pace- setting flourish of economic, industrial and social development for 2020 unlike anything the state has witnessed in the current decade’.
This was the promise given by APC In a statement signed by its Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi that was circulated to the newsmen today in Osogbo.
The party said that already, the investment made by the state government, which has transformed Osun into a business friendly environment is producing such encouraging results that investors,(local. or international) are pledging to set up in the state in 2020.
“This is a further reason for thanksgiving by the people of Osun during this advent and new year celebration” – the APC declared.
“What makes the prospects of 2020 even more reassuring is that quite a number of would-be investors have contributed hundreds of millions of naira to guarantee their investment.
“That is a measure of investor confidence in Osun as a reliable and safe business destination” the APC said.
According to the party, these are the results of the last Economic Summit held in Osogbo late 2019 at which investors were exposed to the strategic position and natural resource endowment of Osun that make it a potentially suitable economic hub for profitable businesses.
The impact of this development on employment will be outstanding while the knock on effect on the standard of living in the state will exceed expectations”, the APC argued.
The party further stated that one of the gains of the summit, “ is that business activities will accelerate and boost internally generated revenue for the state government.
Indeed, the prognosis is that by the 4th Quarter of 2020, about 30 to 40%, (if not more) of the state Budget will be largely funded by internally generated revenue.
When you add all of the above to the increased social welfare packages that Governor Oyetola has initiated, coupled with the enhanced security for business to operate unobstructed, Osun will bubble and investors will smile to the banks”, the APC said.
In this atmosphere, the opposition that had become addicted to baseless criticism will have little or no fodder left to disturb Osun with the nuisance value of its unconstructive assaults, “ the APC declared.
It is on this note of optimism that our party, the APC, wishes the good people of state of Osun, a very happy Christmas and a prosperous 2020” ,the party concluded.
