The Osun State Government will today welcome President Muhammad Buhari to the state on a one-day working visit as well advised residents of the state to demonstrate the Omoluabi (virtuous) ethos they have been known for.
It will be President Buhari’s first official visit to the state since he assumed office about a year ago and first official Presidential visit to the state since Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s assumption of office.
In a statement issued by the Director, Bureau of Communication and Strategy in the Office of the Governor, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon stated that the President will during the visit, commission the newly built 3,000 students capacity Osogbo Government High School, Osogbo.
According to the statement, President Buhari’s visit to Osun will be a testimony to the landmark achievements in the almost six years of Governor Rauf Aregbesola as well as the good working relationship between Osun and the Federal Government.
The statement read in part, “From our own corner of this great country, we are poised to set examples on how to solve many of the national socio economic and political complications confronting us. The magnificent Osogbo Government High School President Muhammadu Buhari will be commissioning on Thursday is illustrative of the magnitude of our ideas and interventions in the education sector. We remain unrelenting as we continue our assault on delayed infrastructure in our education sector and all other sectors.
“We urge the good people of the state to maintain the peace that the state is noted for during and after the President’s visit. We ask them to give a rousing welcome to our amiable President.
“We call on our people particularly the people of Osogbo and its environs, to come out in their great numbers and give our President a befitting welcome during his visit to our state.
“Mr. President’s visit is historic because it marks the first official Presidential visit to the state since we assumed office as the Governor of this great state”. The statement expressed.
