On infrastructure development, the governor said that his administration was pursuing massive construction of flyover bridges and road dualisation across the state

He said his administration was also developing agriculture, women development, youth development, and creative development, amongst others.

“We are running a pan-Osun government that is committed to the revival and prosperity of our dear state,” he stated.
