The Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola has reaffirmed his administration’s commitment and determination to achieve 25 year’s accomplishment within eight years.

Aregbesola who has barely two years left to the end of his tenure, gave the assurance at the weekend while receiving the leadership of Methodist Church of Nigeria, at the Government House, Osogbo.

He said his administration has been working round the clock towards reviving the state’s economy, as well as positioning the state among the most economically viable states in the country.

Aregbesola said his government, since inception in 2010, has been threading the path of economic reinvigoration, which according to him has helped the state to record unprecedented feats in the last six years.

Describing his emergence as governor as the regaining of “hope” that had already been lost, Aregbesola said, “Coming to Osun has given birth to socio-economic prosperity and political stability.”

Affirming his belief in the efficacy of prayers, Aregbesola attributed some of the achievements made by his government to unflinching support received from religious leaders, adding that the country has reached a stage where prayers and supplication are indispensable to facilitate quick survival.

“I am a product of prayers. I believe strongly in the efficacy of prayers. That is why our administration has been growing from strength to strength. As we all know, the present economic situation has challenged each and everyone on the need to move closer to God, and to support the country with prayers as well.

“We must all pray vehemently to rescue our nation from the current socio-economic, religious, cultural and political unrest,” he stressed.

Earlier, the Archbishop of Ilesa Arch-diocese of the church, Most Reverend Amos Akindeko, eulogised Aregbesola for always placing God first in all he does.

    At last, Aregbesola’s belief in God, in himself and in others saw him through, despite having gone through the state’s most difficult period – it is hoped others would learn about these three most important believes in life.

    Very impressiv what Ogbeni Aregbesola has achieved in Osun. A tough battle to reclaim a stolen mandate and a tough battle through recession that crippled the state’s finances have been a part of the journey but ask anyone in Osun still, they’d confirm the truth which is that Aregbesola has moved the state a far distance forward. In doing so, he has also left behind a strong foundation for the state to be easily propelled into further development, and this will be his legacy. He will be remembered in Osun as the man who started a great story. Kudos Aregbesola
