Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola has restated his commitment to running an open and transparent administration.
The governor spoke in Osogbo, the state capital, while hosting executive members of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) Alumni Association in his office.
Oyetola, who said he was a student of the university between 1975 and 1978, added that UNILAG graduates were doing well in various fields of endeavour.
The governor told the visitors that his administration would collaborate with the association for capacity building, research and other areas in its drive to give Osun State the best of governance.
Oyetola noted that the era of mono-cultural economy was gone in the land and that there was need to diversify from crude oil to other areas.
According to him, Osun is the state to be for rewarding mining and tourism businesses, a statement by Oluwamayowa A. Fagbohungbe of the Governor’s Office in Osogbo said yesterday.
The governor, who invited the alumni association team to the state’s economic summit, noted that the summit would be a good avenue to showcase the monumental values in Osun, such as 16 hours of electricity supply daily, tourism potentials, among others, to prospective investors.
Delivering the message of the association’s National President John Momoh, its First Vice President Fassy A. Yusuf said they were in Osogbo to congratulate Oyetola on his inauguration and assumption of office as Osun State governor.
