The founder of the women and vulnerable girls’ empowerment organization, Mrs Titilayomi Ahmadu, in a statement made available to newsmen in Ibadan on Sunday, also felicitated with the governor and the people of Iseyin, in Iseyin local government for what she described as landmark achievements of the current administration in the community.
She said the College, which is the first public institution of higher learning in Iseyin will contribute immensely to socio-economic growth of the people of Oke-Ogun.
Ahmadu , a chartered accountant, who is also a member of the LAUTECH Governing Council went further to describe the first hundred days of the Oyo State governor as a milestone to the people of Iseyin community, because it is within the same period the two major projects were completed that an Aseyin-designate emerged.
“We congratulate governor Seyi Makinde for his vision and impactful mission to transform Oyo State, especially our own local community, Iseyin, it is worthy to note that Iseyin has never had it so good since we returned to democracy, we are grateful.
“On behalf of my organization W.O.R.K.S and the entire Iseyin people, we are saying kudos to His Excellency and the entire cabinet for making this dream of our people of having an institution of higher learning come to reality, only those that followed the agitation from the old can really appreciate this gesture.
“We remember the long-abandoned Iseyin-Oyo road that has claimed many lives of our people which our amiable governor just completed its reconstruction, this shows that the fear of criminal activities, vehicular accidents and sundry other problems witnessed before the reconstruction has been eradicated.
“Also, within the first hundred days of the second term of Governor Makinde, the much-expected selection of a new Aseyin of Iseyin was made possible and we owe the success to the support shown by the Governor,” she added.
The commissioning of the College and the reconstructed of the Iseyin-Oyo road according to the state government, will be commissioned by the former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, which will be witnessed by members of the state executive council, politicians, traditional rulers and critical stakeholders across the state and beyond.
