The United States of America Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Stuart Symington has praised Governor Rauf Aregbesola for running people-oriented government.

Symington said this when he paid a courtesy call to Aregbesola on Tuesday, June 20,2017 at the Bola Ige House, Osogbo, Osun state.

The Ambassador also described the Governor’s social protection programs as a dividend of good governance.

In his response, Aregbesola said “America has evolved to be a major factor in world growth and development to the extent that whatever decision the country takes on any burning issue shakes the world.

“When an entity is as powerful as America, such entity needs to be very careful about every major decision it takes because of other countries.

Ambassador Symington also commended Governor Aregbesola for his investment in provision of infrastructure.
