Osun State Governor, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola has been described as a media savvy leader who would neither look for trouble nor court controversy.
Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs. Funke Egbemode said this in Osogbo while receiving the executive of Lagos Council of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) led by the Council Chairman, Dr. Qasim Akinreti.
Egbemode, however, observed that behind Oyetola’s gentle attitude to life was an uncommon energy to work long hours without losing his temperament.
She said: “You only see him upset when you don’t meet your target,” the Commissioner disclosed.
According to the Commissioner, the governor, who was poised to doing things differently, was eager to showcase Osun to the rest of the world with a view to bringing in investments into the state’s mining, agriculture, tourism sectors.
“Osun is too rich to be poor and we explore just 30% of our natural resources in the state, we would become a regional commercial hub and the governor is determined to make it happen,” Egbemode said.
Earlier, the Chairman, Lagos Council of NUJ, had observed that since Egbemode assumed office, she had brought innovation to bear on her job.
Akinreti, however, testified that in the history of the Nigeria Guild of Editors, Egbemode’s performance as the immediate past President was still unbeatable.
Also, Secretary to the State Government of Osun, Prince Wole Oyebamiji gave kudos to Egbemode for changing the face of the state in the media since her appointment.
The state scribe, who also received the Qasim Akinreti-led Lagos NUJ Executive, pleaded for more media support for Oyetola and his government who was striving to fulfill his electoral promises to the people of the state.
