Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola has said that he would not leave Osun after his regime and that he would assist his successor to run the state.
The Governor said this during his all night interactive session tagged ‘Ogbeni Till Day Break’ in Osogbo, the state capital Sunady and assured the people of the state that his successor will sustain his legacy.
He said that when he completes his tenure and handover to another democratically elected governor on November 27, 2018, make himself available to the next Governor and assist him.
Aregbesola said despite the fact that he has just 200 days more to spend as the chief executive of the state, concerted efforts will be put in place to put finishing touches on his legacy projects.
“I’m not leaving this state after the expiration of my tenure. My successor will be better than I am. I won’t leave him, I will be behind the scenes offering him supports.”
“We have 200 days left in office and we intend to make the best use of the time to further better the lot of the Osun people. We are not done with our plan to further develop Osun. There is still a lot more we want to do.”
While justifying that the current debt profile of the state was as a result of the massive infrastructural facilities provided by his administration, Aregbesola assured that he would not leave the state with debt burden. He insisted that none of his programmes failed.
