“I recognize the crucial role that infrastructural development plays in the affairs of a society.
“It is given that living in an environment will be stress-free if the necessary socio-economic amenities are emplaced.
“The improvement in the quality of infrastructure in a society affects, positively, the living conditions of the people. They are the direct beneficiaries of projects such as this very important one we are commissioning today.”
His words: “You have proven that with the limited resources, you cared so much about your people. Anybody can say anything, but for us who are close to Osun State, we know you have done wonderfully well.
“I can beat my chest and say that nobody can beat your record. As you are struggling to get this mandate back, the record you have put down is there. We know the number of roads you have done. We know the Health Centers you have worked on. Congratulate yourself, you have done well.”
Governor Akeredolu, who thanked the Osun State Governor for the invitation to commission the Iconic Flyover, described the gesture as an honour.
