“Osoba did well in Orile-Oko by giving us 6 transformers, immediately the transformer got spoiled since 16 years ago, Orile-Oko has been in darkness and nobody to assist us.

“During the Amosun regime, we wrote a letter for his assistance, we heard that he tried, he gave some people money to fix it but everything went wrong.

“The entire Orile-Oko both home and abroad, we are very happy with our Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for tiling Eyinokan to Orile-Oko road, though the entire Orile-Oko is still expecting the governor to take the road from express down to Ishon. We are still expecting from our amiable Governor to construct Orile-Oko road,” he submitted.
