Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun has boasted of his achievements in the state, noting that he did not renege on any of the promises made during his campaign in 2018.

Mr Oyetola noted that people of the state could testify to the progress and development his administration had brought to the state in the past three years.

“We have been together going for four years now and you can testify to the fact that I have not failed in any of my promises to you,” he said.

He said this during an engagement programme with the All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN) on Sunday in the Odo-Otin local government area of the state.

The governor urged the Osun electorate not to allow those he described as “kindergarten politicians” to deceive them ahead of the July 16 governorship election.

Mr Oyetola who was represented by Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, his Special Assistant on Civic Engagement, appealed to the electorates to shun politicians who would soon be out with a campaign of deceit.

“Election is fast approaching, and I want to appeal to the electorate not to allow inexperienced politicians to deceive them with fake promises.

“You know me, and I know you. Let’s join hands together to win the forthcoming gubernatorial election for me, and like before, you will not be disappointed,” the governor promised.

He further vowed that his administration would continue to support farmers with necessary farm inputs.

In his remark, Popoola Akolawole, the AFAN chairman in the area, commended the governor for his support for farmers in the state.
