Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, yesterday, appealed to residents of the state to trust him for another term of four years, saying that his government had kept faith with his campaign promises of working for the betterment of the state and its people.

Abiodun, who made the appeal when his campaign train visited Odogbolu Local Council, commissioned 18-km Ejinrin-Idowa-Ibefun-Itokin Road.

He said that the construction of the road was part of the deliberate efforts of his government to improve on mobility and ease of doing business in the state.

Abiodun, who stated that the road construction was another milestone in the infrastructural development of the state, said that since the commencement of his campaign, his administration had been able to inaugurate road constructions in all the local councils visited so far.

He said that his government would continue to provide enabling and conducive environment for public private partnership to thrive.

“We inaugurated Itori Township Road in Ewekoro Local Council last week. In Ijebu-East, we inaugurated Esure Road.
“The road we are commissioning today is a connecting road between Ogun and Lagos states. It is a Federal Government road but in a deplorable condition. We must not allow our people to suffer.
“We have paid attention to roads that connect neighbouring states, especially Lagos. We are determined to build the future of Ogun State together.
“We have reconstructed over 400 kilometres of highways in three years and seven months.”

The governor, however, said that he was grateful to God for the grace to keep faith with the promises made while seeking to be the governor, saying that the numerous projects as executed by his administration just confirmed that he is not that type of governor who takes the people for granted.

He said that he would consolidate on his achievements, urging the people to vote for him and return him for another term of four years.

The governor equally urged the people to vote for the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on February 25, 2023 as well as other candidates of the party.

saying that the ruling party remain dedicated to addressing yearnings of Nigerians.A member of National Youth Mobilisation, Southwest of Presidential Campaign Council of the ruling party, Adekunle Ayoola who is also from the local government during the campaign described the choice of Abiodun for another term as well as Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu presidential aspiration as one that the people will never regret.

Ayoola said “Abiodun has no doubt been fantastic with governance in the state, he has quietly been working all around the state to ensure development across all the sectors of the economy, be it education, healthcare, housing, agriculture, among others, so he no doubt deserved another term. And for Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the truth is that the political icon has all it takes to fix the country and it is one choice Nigerians won’t regret”.

Oba Yinusa Adekoya, Dagburewe of Idowa, commended the governor for fulfilling his promise, adding that the road was in a dilapidated condition before the governor came into office.

Adekoya urged the people to come out enmass and vote the governor, saying that his election was already a done deal.
