The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has denounced the recent change in the state’s logo by the Governor Ademola Adeleke-led government, dismissing it as a diversionary tactic amidst the ongoing suffering of Osun citizens.

In a statement issued on Friday April 19, 2024, APGA’s state Chairman, Wole Adedoyin, said that the purported achievement of altering the state logo was merely a cosmetic change that failed to address the pressing needs of the populace.

Adedoyin also lamented that Governor Adeleke’s administration was yet to fulfill numerous electoral promises, leaving citizens grappling with immense challenges.

“While the ruling party celebrates this superficial change, the reality on the ground is starkly different.

“Osun citizens continue to endure hardship, with essential services and infrastructure sorely lacking in many areas,” Adedoyin said.

Besides, the APGA Osun chapter chairman condemned the acute suffering experienced by citizens across various sectors, including healthcare, education, and infrastructure.

He said that the emblem alteration serves as a smokescreen to deflect attention from the government’s failure to deliver on its commitments to the electorate.

Adedoyin said, “We urge Governor Adeleke to prioritize the welfare of Osun citizens above cosmetic alterations.

“The emblem change does not alleviate the suffering of our people, nor does it address the root causes of their challenges.”

APGA state chairman however reaffirmed the party’s commitment to holding the government accountable and advocating for tangible improvements in the lives of Osun residents.

He pledged to continue amplifying the voices of the marginalized and advocating for policies that prioritize the well-being of all citizens, while appealing to Governor Adeleke to refocus his administration’s efforts on implementing substantive reforms that address the pressing needs of Osun State.

APGA assured that it would remain vigilant in ensuring that the government remained accountable and responsive to the concerns of the people.
