The majority leader of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Sanjo Adedoyin, has praised Governor Seyi Makinde for his enormous contributions to the growth of the Ogbomoso zone, especially the steps he took to restore the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) to its former glory as not only the best state-owned institution in Nigeria but as one of the best university in the world.

During Governor Seyi Makinde’s presentation of the 2023 budget at the House of Assembly on Tuesday, Adddoyin, a PDP lawmaker, expressed his gratitude on behalf of the Ogbomoso zone. 

He thanked the governor for appointing Professor Razaq Olatunde Rom Kalilu, an illustrious son of the Ogbomoso zone, as Acting Vice-Chancellor of the University for another period of six months while also appealing to the Governor to make him a substantive Vice Chancellor for four years.

He described Kalilu as a brilliant scholar, round peg in a round hole, who was specifically born to be the Vice Chancellor of LAUTECH while highlighting some of his outstanding accomplishments and contributions to the growth of the institution during his time as a lecturer and during the time he served in various leadership roles in the institution. 

Adedoyin equally thanked the governor for his efforts in connecting roads between Ogbomoso and Iseyin while also urging him to give some other badly maintained roads in the Ogbomoso zone immediate attention as they are completely collapsing.

These included the roads from Ipeba to Ajaawa, Ajaawa to Otamokun, Otamokun to Arowomole, Arowomole to Ijeru, Ijeru to Ojagbo, Ojagbo to Masifa, Masifa to Okelerin, and other areas that require immediate attention. 

He said: “Our roads are in serious mess every where in Ogbomoso. Of course, these bad roads are not the Governor’s fault but the Federal Government fault on the process of fixing the road between Taki and the seminary by failing to provide alternative route for articulated lorries coming from the North to be accessing interline roads which are not meant for them. These have made our roads to be in total collapse.”

The majority leader, who also called the governor’s attention to his promise made during the 2023 campaign to revive the Oko Fruit Processing Factory in Surulere Local Government Area of the state, stated that all efforts to revitalize the industry should be put into consideration. 

He added, “We are eagerly awaiting the realisation of your promise, Your Excellency, made to us during your re-election campaign, to establish a cashew processing industry for us in Oriire Local Government.” 

Adedoyin however appealed to the Governor to recruit more teachers to primary schools particularly in Ogbomoso zone, noting that more than 5,000 teachers have retired since 2019 based on the available data at his disposal without a replacement yet.
