The Governor of Osun state, Mr Rauf Aregbesola has said that states of the federation must look inward for their survival as funds coming to them from the federation account can no longer support their development projects.
Aregbesola said with Osun’s receipt of N55 million for the month of September, the message was clear that all avenues hitherto untapped must now be examined in order to sustain development initiatives.
The Governor stated this at the commencement of the reconstruction of Orita-Olaiya-Ita-Olokan Road at Olaiya Junction to commemorate the 5th year of the Aregbesola-led government in Osun.

He pointed out that money coming from the Federation Account has dipped badly hence the need for people of the state to look inward in advancing the course of the state by returning to Agriculture.
He said, “We must at this point tell ourselves the truth, there is no money coming from the federation account, 34 million barrels of Nigeria’s crude oil are on the sea without buyers.
