COVID-19: Our Administration Has Been Proactive In Tackling The Menace - Oyetola

As Osogbo Grammar School alumni association donates N2million

The Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, says the proactive measures taken by his administration had helped in combating the dreaded Coronavirus in the State.

He attributed the successes recorded in the fight against the pandemic to the holistic approach that the State government launched against the virus.

The governor maintained that the state would have been seriously ravaged if not for the government's strong conviction to prioritize the health sector on assumption of office.

Governor Oyetola spoke on Tuesday while receiving members of the national delegation of the Osogbo Grammar School Alumni Association, at the Governor's office, State Government Secretariat, Abere, Osogbo.

Members of the alumni association had come to donate the sum of N2million to support the state government's efforts in curbing the pandemic. The wife of the governor, Mrs Kafayat Oyetola is a member of the alumni association.

Governor Adegboyega Oyetola who was represented by his Deputy, Mr. Benedict Alabi, said the state had no case of community transmission as all the confirmed cases were imported.

He said the administration had put in place the required facilities to prevent the spread of the virus, adding that no effort would be spared to stamp out COVID-19 from the State.

While commending members of the Osogbo Grammar School alumni association for the kind gesture, Governor Oyetola said the cash donation would serve as a motivation for others.

He urged people of the state particularly members of the private sector to continue to support the government in the fight against the pandemic.

"It gladens my heart when I heard that the alumni association wanted to support the state. I was glad because it shows that people are not leaving the fight against the deadly disease to the government alone.
