Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has bagged the Political Brand Personality of the Year Award by Marketing Edge Publication Limited.
The governor, while receiving the award at the 2022 Marketing Edge summit tagged, “Technological Explosion in the Digital Age: Imperatives for the Marketing Communications Industry,” held at the Harbour Point Hall, Victoria Island, Lagos, urged marketing professionals to partner with his government to successfully achieve its administration’s policy.
Abiodun, represented by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Waheed Odusile, said that his administration had opened doors for partnership as no government could do it all alone.
The governor, while thanking the organisers for the award, said the recognition would be a source of inspiration for his administration to do more.
Earlier in his remarks, the Publisher, Marketing Edge Publication Limited, John Ajayi, noted that the award was as a result of the numerous achievements of the incumbent administration in Ogun on road construction, especially that of Journalists’ Estate in Arepo.
MEANWHILE, Abiodun, at the weekend, said that the reconstructed 2.4-kilometre Oke-Ola Road in Imeko Afon Local Council was a departure from the past as it leads and connects Oyo State, which is aimed at boosting business activities with consequent increase in revenue generation into the coffers of the government.
IN another development, residents of Ajegunle-Araromi community in Makun-Sagamu area of Ogun State have urged Governor Dapo Abiodun to stop encroachment on their family land and allocation of lands to foreigners by civil servants in the Directorate of Land Bureau.
