Osun At 30: The History Will Tell -Ameer Ta’awun

Anytime we are to reflect or mark the 30 years when Osun was created, the first to be remembered is late Alhaji Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke. He was the first democratically elected governor of the state. Although, his tenure was short-lived, but what he puts in place to advance social economic development of the state, which were universally applauded can never be erased.

When Baba Bisi Akande came, he brought the greatest good to the greater number of people in the society. His exemplary performance in office, today, has been recommended to the nation’s politicians as a typical demonstration, that in Nigeria, it is possible for politicians to place society above self interest. The policies and action of Alhaji Abdul Kareem Adebisi Akande in government, made him truly phenomenal.

Also, the Osun State University is one of the greatest achievements of Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola who took over after the tenure of Baba Bisi Akande. There is no how we will talk about Osun at 30 without mentioning his name. What individual contributed to Osun development, history will continue to tell.

Aregbesola, even, if we fail to mention his name, the God who is not like ingrate human beings, will have his name remembered where less expected. In history of the state, as at present, no one has surpassed his achievements. He puts in place, series of programs that have direct impact on the lives of people of Osun, which include, social investment programs, security of lives and property, as well as infrastructural development.

Many of his programs were embraced by the Federal government. The legacy he left, for 100 years to come can never be erased. In fact we all miss his callisthenic programs.

So, celebrating Osun at 30 without Abdul Rauf Aregbesola, the architect of modern Osun will go down in history.

May Oyetola also succeed and leave a good legacy, which will continue to live after his tenure. Above all, the roles that Ta’awun played too, if no one remembers, the history will tell.
