My good people of Oyo State,
Every building that will stand requires a plan. And so, in 2019, we started with the Roadmap for Accelerated Development in Oyo State, 2019-2023.
That plan required carrying out many high-end activities, creating the structures needed for accelerated development.
We focused on things that would quickly grow our economy:
while at the same time investing massively in education and healthcare. Our economy grew even when others suffered.
I am running for a second term on my records of policies, programmes and projects that puts the good people of Oyo State first.
Our education policy has seen at least 54,000 out-of-school children return to the classroom. Fifty-six model schools completed, and over 700 classrooms built.
Our healthcare policies have touched over 2 million persons through direct interventions, while 200 communities now have renovated healthcare facilities within 1km of their homes.
Our economic policies have seen our Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) rise by over 90% while Oyo State has moved to the top 3 states in Nigeria for the generation of Value Added Tax.
Our security policies have seen crime rates drop by over 25%, and farmers in our rural communities returning to their farms.
We gave you Omituntun 1.0. It’s time for an upgrade.
It is time to move from Accelerated Development to Sustainable Development.
It is time for Omituntun 2.0
