Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi got another boost to his Govermorship aspirations as the former Osun State Head of Service, Elder Olusegun Akinwusi described him as the best material to lift Osun State out of its economic and financial doldrums.
Commenting on the gubernatorial aspiration of Dr. Ogunbiyi, the former Head of Service, an astute bureaucrat and community leader disclosed that the gubernatorial candidate has all it takes to improve the fortunes of the state by leading it on the path of quick economic growth and development.
Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi, a frontline politician and gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming primary election is the Chairman/Founder of Mutual Benefits Assurance Plc and a major investor across industries locally and globally.
Elder Akinwusi stated that the responsibilities attached to the position of the governor of a State can only be efficiently carried out by Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi who also currently sits as the Group Chairman of Mutual Benefits Assurance PLC, a Conglomerate of nine subsidiaries with over 5,000 employees.
He stated: “It is only Dr Akin Ogunbiyi out of all the governorship aspirants that can rejuvenate the decaying and dying economy and social services of Osun State. We do not need a Governor in Osun who will depend on statutory allocation all the time but one who will substantially grow internally generated revenue and introduce innovative ideas and strategies to develop Osun State from its present decaying state.”
Validating his standpoint, Akinwusi explained that besides being familiar with the gubernatorial aspirant, Ogunbiyi has been paying his dues as an accomplished entrepreneur with chains of successful businesses in Nigeria and the West African sub-region.
“He is not coming because of the glamour of the office or to make money. He will definitely make the long- awaited difference in the lives of our people. He has a value-delivering NGO that has been providing support, opportunities and gainful employment for our people. We should be the one pleading with Akin Ogubiyi to come and use his experience and unique expertise to develop our State, not the other way round,” Akinwusi added.
