Oyo State governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi has urged Nigerians to keep hope alive in the New Year on the ability of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to revamp the economy.
The governor while congratulating Nigerians on the occasion of the New Year in a New Year message issued by his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Mr. Yomi Layinka in Ibadan, on Sunday, admitted that the country went through a lot of social and economic challenges in 2017.
Ajimobi, however, assured that the novel programmes and policies of the federal government would bring the needed succour to the people in 2018.
The governor particularly expressed sympathy with Nigerians on the pervading fuel scarcity, which, he said, spoilt the fun of the yuletide for many people, assuring that it was a phase that would soon fizzle out.
While expressing appreciation to the people of Oyo State for their cooperation with, and support for his government, Ajimobi pledged that he would redouble his efforts to make life more meaningful to them in 2018.
He said that his administration would remain committed to the welfare and well-being of the people through the execution of projects that would have direct bearing on their lives.
Ajimobi said, “Although the challenges we are currently facing appear daunting, it is my utmost belief that, with the commitment and sincerity being exhibited by the Muhammadu Buhari-led FG, we shall overcome them.
“On our part, I want to assure you that we will complete some of the ongoing projects across the state; particularly those already slated for completion by 2018. We will also embark on aggressive rural infrastructural development.
“We are resolute in consolidating on the gains of the past. I crave your understanding and cooperation as good citizens of the state, particularly on the poor state of the economy, which has taken its toll on virtually all the states of the federation.
“I want to appeal to our people to keep supporting the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration. Let us repose confidence in the president to take the economy through a remarkable turnaround.”
