Why I am completing inherited Osun projects — Adeleke

Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke has restated his commitment to the pledge he made towards completing all projects inherited from the previous administrations.

The governor, who said there was a need to ensure that public funds were not wasted due to abandoned projects by succeeding administrations regardless of the differences in political affiliations, informed his decision and noted that more inherited projects would be completed and put to use.

Speaking on Friday at the commissioning of the office complex of the Osun State Health Insurance Agency located within the Government Secretariat in Abere, Adeleke said challenges confronting the health sector in the state, especially inadequate manpower, had been addressed in the 2024 budget.

He promised to enhance various health initiatives of the administration further and rehabilitate more health facilities to ensure access to quality healthcare services across the state.

He said, “I invite our people to remember that I pledged to complete all abandoned and uncompleted projects inherited from the previous administrations. I remain committed to that obligation.

“Public funds must never be wasted due to political differences. I have completed several of such uncompleted projects. Today, we are commissioning another inherited project to house a very successful state agency, the OHIS. From this new edifice, our administration will continue its drive towards expanded health coverage and access.”

Speaking earlier, the Executive Secretary of Osun Health Insurance Agency, Dr Rasaq Akindele, said the organisation has been delivering on its core mandate of quality healthcare for all, adding that enrolment of all pensioners in the state as directed by the governor has reached an advanced stage.
