A former Head of Service in Osun state, Elder Olusegun Akinwusi has said the leadership qualities of insurance magnate, Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi, is required to lead Osun out of the woods.
Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi, a frontline politician and gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the forthcoming primary election is the Chairman/Founder of Mutual Benefits Assurance Plc and a major investor across industries locally and globally.
Saying that the latter has the competence to turn around the fortunes of the state, Akinwusi
Commenting on the gubernatorial aspiration of Dr. Ogunbiyi, the former head of service, an astute bureaucrat and community leader disclosed that the gubernatorial candidate has all it takes to improve the fortunes of the state by leading it on the path of quick economic growth and development.
Elder Akinwusi stated this at a gathering in Osogbo, the state capital.
He said that the responsibilities attached to the position of the governor of a state can only be efficiently carried out by someone with the exposure of Ogunbiyi.
He stated, “It is only Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi out of all the governorship aspirants that can rejuvenate the decaying and dying economy and social services of Osun State. We do not need a Governor in Osun who will depend on statutory allocation all the time but one who will substantially grow internally generated revenue and introduce innovative ideas and strategies to develop Osun State from its present decaying state.”
Validating his standpoint, Akinwusi explained that besides being familiar with the gubernatorial aspirant, Ogunbiyi has been paying his dues as an accomplished entrepreneur with chains of successful businesses in Nigeria and the West African sub-region.
“He is not coming because of the glamour of the office or to make money. He will definitely make the long- awaited difference in the lives of our people. He has a value-delivering NGO that has been providing support, opportunities and gainful employment for our people. We should be the one pleading with Akin Ogubiyi to come and use his experience and unique expertise to develop our State, not the other way round,” Akinwusi added.
