Aregbesola predicts an end to economic hardship in Osun
The Governor at the official commissioning of the new Ife/Orile-Owu 33KV feeder line at Orile-Owu, Ayedaade Local Government Area, noted that his administration is committed to making life meaningful and abundant to the people of the State. He explained that this informed the infrastructural development in the nooks and crannies of the state.
The governor commended the people of Orile-Owu and its environs for their patience over years before electricity was restored back to the communities with a total cost of N225 million.
He held that his administration decided to assist the service providers by rehabilitating the Gbongan-Ikire 33KV feeder line, making it to end at Araromi-Owu, Odeyinka and three farm settlements of Mokore, Oyere-Aborisade and Ago-Owu.
Aregbesola stressed that it is quite clear that the new 33KV relief feeder line will ensure stable power supply to the farm settlements thus stemming rural/urban drift by encouraging the teeming populace to return to farming in the farm settlement.
According to him, “ I want to use this opportunity to admonish us to return to the farms, what we used to rely on as a country and state is no longer there. Oil has now dipped seriously, even at about 41 Dollars per barrel from a price of over 100 dollars; Nigeria still cannot sell her oil in the international market.
