The governor-elect of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has called on the United States of America for his five-point agenda initiative to implement his government plan.
Adeleke made this known to US Consul General William Stevens and paid him a courtesy call while receiving his team.
He expressed his intention to lead a pro-development government and promised to establish direct cooperation with international development agencies, saying that the state needed all the support to accelerate its development plans.
The spokesman for governor-elect Olawale Rasheed got it in Osogbo on Thursday, Adeleke read in parts: “I will work hard to improve the education and health sector, taking care of infrastructure, roads, water and others. We will boost the state’s economy and develop the tourism industry and improve the technology space. We intend to embark on an agro-industrial program to create employment and wealth.
“I will create a close partnership with the United States Government to achieve a strong performance in the five-point agenda. We will open our hands to cooperation in education, technology, health, women, youth, digital economy and many others”.
Responding, Stevens said the team was in Osun state as the US government showed keen interest in the democratic growth and development of Nigeria.
