The Osun State government has hailed Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi for their high sense of commitment to the actualisation of Southwest’s development agenda.
The state also lauded the impact Southwest governors have made on the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN) commission, as well as stakeholders, youth associations and individuals on the success of the two-day Southwest Regional Youth Summit in Osogbo, the capital.
In a statement by the Media Adviser to Osun State governor, Mr Sola Fasure, at the end of the weekly State Executive Council (Exco) meeting in Osogbo, the government expressed satisfaction with what it called the impressive participatory strength and large turnout of notable personalities within and outside the region.
It described the presence of Osinbajo at the summit as “encouraging”.
The statement said: “Council received the report of the successful hosting of the Regional Youth Summit in Osogbo by the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN) Commission and the state government, between January 9 and 10, which attracted participants from all the states in the region.
“Council commended the organisers of the summit and thanked the participants, particularly Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, who delivered the keynote address; Senator Abiola Ajimobi, the Governor of Oyo State; Ondo State government, ably represented by the deputy governor; Ogun State government, which sent a delegation, and the youth organisations and individuals that attended the programme.”
