Osun: Ooni lauds Oyetola for repaying close to N100 billion inherited debts as Governor ... Commends President Tinubu's track records so far

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi has commended the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Adegboyega Oyetola CON for rescuing Osun from the damning debts inherited from the past administrations while governing the state.

The foremost traditional ruler acknowledged the tremendous achievements made by the former Governor while administering the affairs of the state saying the notable intervention made in offsetting the debts was a significant relief to the economy of the state.

This is even as the imperial majesty  lauded President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his track records in the last few months.

Oba Ogunwusi spoke on Saturday while playing host to the Minister's team in his palace in Ile-Ife. Oyetola and his entourage paid homage to the monarch on their way to the funeral ceremony of the late mother of the State APC Chairman, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal.

The revered monarch who described Oyetola as a meek character with repository of knowledge across human endeavours alluded to the high sense of transparency exhibited by the ex-governor while serving the State.

"I have said it and I will continue to say it that you are a special creature. God created you with very meek character like a dove and yet you are a performer. You are indeed a man of impeccable character, humility, integrity and excellence. Your meek character is applaudable. 

"I commend you for your excellent performance while governing the state. It was obvious to all that in spite the meagre resources available to your government then, you did excellently well. We all knew how and what came to the state in term of allocation and other funds that accrued to Osun under your government. We are living witnesses to what your government earned and we all knew how you judiciously expended and managed the resources at your disposal. 

"You didn't give excuse but rather took the bull by the horns. Infact at a point, I was wondering how you were able to scale through the financial huddles and yet achieved great things. At a point, I had to come to you and ask how you were able to achieve that much in the face of socioeconomic realities. So, I commend you for your effectiveness and efficiency in managing the economy of the state.

"It is on record that out of the inherited debt of Osun, you paid over a hundred billion naira. You touched each of the sectors by giving them what it was due to them at that time, and you made everything transparent to the citizens including the royal fathers in the state. I pray God to continue to imbue you with more wisdom, knowledge and understanding to do more and I equally pray Him to continue to grant you 'divine money management skills' to do more for humanity. 

"This visit is unique. It is only during campaigns that we used to see many politicians like this that followed you to the palace. This is the first time we will be seeing these caliber of people on a visit to the palace. I must commend you all for coming. I thank God for your life we thank God that you are a leader today as the head of a notable ministry. One  ministry like a combination of four to five states. We thank God for your life. 

"I equally commend President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his good works and continued support for us in the state, southwestern Nigeria and the country at large. We are proud of him as a people and as a race", Ooni stated.
