The Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to help Osun State with resources to complete the many abandoned projects in the state.

The party also advised the state governor, Rauf Aregbesola, to use the opportunity of the president’s one-day visit to request for assistance to enable his administration complete all the projects it started.

Diran Odeyemi, Spokesman for the PDP in Osun State, said the governor should lead the president to the many abandoned projects scattered all over the state, perhaps Buhari may assist the state to complete them.

“The president if allowed to inspect Ido Osun Aerodrome, the International market in Dagbolu, Osogbo/ Kwara Boundary road and Osogbo/Gbongan road among other abandoned projects may wish to assist the state in resuscitating them for the benefit of the citizens,” he said.

The PDP spokesman however alleged that Governor Aregbesola earmarked N340 million for the President’s visit at a time when the state is finding it difficult to pay workers.

He also criticised the governor for alleged failure to constitute his cabinet.

Semiu Okanlawon, the Director, Bureau of Communication and Strategy in the Office of the Osun State Governor, had released a statement Wednesday saying that President Buhari is expected to commission the newly built 3,000 students capacity Osogbo Government High School, Osogbo, which he said mirrored the “magnitude of our ideas and interventions in the education sector.”
