The chairmen of local government councils in Osun State who are members of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria, ALGON, Osun State Chapter, have distanced themselves from any events, programmes, ceremonies or celebrations organised in the state aside the one proposed by the state government to commemorate Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s second year anniversary.
This followed the plans in some quarters to organise a 10th year “progressive governance” anniversary in the state at the exact period of the current administration’s second anniversary.
The local government chairmen, in a statement issued on Tuesday, congratulated Governor Adegboyega Oyetola on the occasion of his second year anniversary.
They added that the celebration of his achievements in the last two years took precedence over other events and ceremonies at the moment.
The statement reads in part: “Members of ALGON in Osun State pledged our unalloyed loyalty and commitments to our amiable, indefatigable and achieving Governor Gboyega Oyetola.
“We identify with the achievements recorded so far by Mr Governor over the last two years, and we rejoice with him on his second year anniversary as the Governor of the State of Osun.
“We are committed to celebrating the second year anniversary of the administration of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola in a grand style.
“No member of ALGON would be part of any other anniversary celebration on the 27th November, 2020 other than second year anniversary of Governor Gboyega Oyetola.”
