Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the federal government will establish a federal polytechnic in Oke Ogun zone of Oyo state as well as a trans-border market in Saki after the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Vice President made the promise to the people of Oke-Ogun while addressing monarchs and other residents at the palace of Bagi of Saki at the weekend, Premium Times reports.
Osinbajo praised the people of the area for their constant support for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
His words: “We have been touring Oke-Ogun for a few days now. We have received all the requests from the people and we will address them
“Oke-Ogun deserves a federal institution, we will give you a federal polytechnic.
“We will also ensure that we see to the trans-border market in Saki. It will be part of our plans.
“Buhari is true to his words and we will do all we’ve promised”.
He added that “Oke-Ogun is not a place we belittle at all just as the government selected a minister for the first time in this area.”
Urging the people to ensure that only good people get elected into office, Osinbajo said: “If we do not vote the right people, we will only pray in vain. Our problem in this country is not lack of ideas, but corruption”.
The vice president was accompanied by the deputy governor of Oyo state, Otunba Moses Adeyemo and the Minister of Communications, Mr Adebayo Shittu.
