The Chief Executive Officer of a Civil Engineering company, Quickborn Nigeria Limited, Alhaji Tunde Ologburo has commended Governor Seyi Makinde for his deftness in containing the spread of the COVID-19 disease in the state.
In a press release signed by himself, Ologburo who is also the Sanmori Adini of Oyo Kingdom said that the Makinde administration has demonstrated, yet again, that Oyo State is second to none in terms of good governance across the country.
He noted that while other state governments rely on grants from either the Federal Government or foreign aides donor, the government in Oyo State solely constructed a diagnostic centre to treat victims of the dreaded disease.
“This government has proved its critics wrong again. Initially, there are talks that the governor is not being proactive enough at combating the escalation of this virus infection. But today, we are all living and happy witnesses to the pioneering effort of Makinde administration at checkmating the spread of this disease in Oyo State.
“Apart from the diagnostic centre, there are other isolation centres at every major townships in Oyo State and when you look at the statistics of the scale of the disease in the state, you will see clearly that we are not even at such an alarming threshold already – and God forbids that we would.
“But the point is that the governor has done commendably well and, unfortunately, he got infected by the virus on the line of duty himself and what more sacrifice could be bigger than that?
“We pray for a quick recovery of the governor and I particularly want to also appreciate the interim Head of the Covid- 19 Task Force in Oyo State, Professor Temitope Alonge for sustaining the tempo of work,” Ologburo said.
