I am a Product of Prayers - Aregbesola
Osun state Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has reaffirmed his administration’s commitment and determination to achieve 25 years works within 8 years. Governor Aregbesola gave the assurance on Thursday while receiving the leadership of Methodist Church of Nigeria, at the Government House, Osogbo. He said his administration has been working round the clock in reviving the state’s economy and as well positioning the state among the most viable economic states in Nigeria.
Aregbesola said his government, since inception in 2010, has been threading paths of economic reinvigoration, which according to him, helped to record unprecedented feats in the last six years. The Governor who described his emergence as the regaining of “hope” that had already been lost, said “coming to Osun has given birth to socio-economic prosperity and political stability”.
Affirming his belief in the efficacy of prayers, Governor Aregbesola attributed some of the achievements made by his government to unflinching supports received from religious leaders. Aregbesola said the country has reached a climax where prayers and supplication are indispensable to facilitate quick survival. “I am a product of prayers. I believe strongly in the efficacy of prayers. That is why our administration has been growing from strength to strength. As we all know, the present economic situation has challenged each and every one on the need to move closer to God and as well support the country with prayers. We must all pray vehemently to rescue our nation out of the current socio-economic, religious, cultural and political unrest”, he stressed.
Earlier, the Archbishop of Ilesa Arch-diocese of Methodist Church of Nigeria, Most Reverend Amos Akindeko, eulogized Governor Aregbesola for always placing God first in all he does. Rev. Akindeko, who led other men of God in prayers, prayed God to continue to uphold the state and its people.
