With barely a week to the end of his tenure as governor of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola doesn’t appear to be slowing down.
Just yesterday, the state government commissioned four different projects across the capital city of Osogbo.
One of the projects was the New fakunle government high school. Another of the many iconic model school infrastructure that have become associated with Osun under Aregbesola.
The newly commissioned school facility has a 3,000 student capacity and comes with well equipped laboratories and standard sport facilities.
Omoluabi scholars buses aiming at easing transportation worries of the students have been duly provided.
Osun’s recent investment in school infrastructure has seen it build 11 new model high schools, 22 new middle schools and 20 new elementary schools.
Renovation of over 1500 classroom across the state has also been a huge part of government’s efforts to revive the education sector.
Another project commissioned yesterday by the Governor was the Technical college Osogbo.
The Technical College Osogbo was commissioned in honor of the former governor of the State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola.
The government has focused heavily on impacting technical skill on the youths in the state and thus this commissioning comes as no surprise.
Worthy of note is the fact that 40 youths from Osun were sponsored by the state government to Germany to be trained in Mechatronics and are now fully engaged with the Bola Ige Mechatronics Institute, Esa-Oke.
Another set of 40 youths were also sponsored to Germany to learn the most modern techniques in livestock ranching and are now also fully engaged with the Oloba cattle ranch.
This Technical College is expected to serve as a avenue to empower youths in the state with the necessary skills to become experts in their chosen fields.
The government of Osun under Aregbesola has also prioritized road construction and so it was only befitting that the governor commissioned two road projects.
The first of the road projects commissioned yesterday was the Oba Adesoji Aderemi East bypass.
The Oba Adesoji Aderemi East bypass is an 18km outer ring road designed to decongest the Osogbo city center. It is commonly called “ Ona Baba Ona”.
The other road project commissioned by the state government yesterday was the Chief Obafemi Awolowo way.
The Chief Awolowo way stretches from Ola-Iya junction in Osogbo through Ikirun and terminates at the boundary of Osun with Kwara State. A span of 30km.
These two laudable road projects fits into the vision of the state government to open up the State and make it the agricultural hub for the South West.
