We ’ll continue to provide needed infrastructure despite paucity of funds, says Abiodun

Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has said that his administration will continue to provide infrastructure capable of opening up and driving the economic development of the state, despite paucity of funds.

Abiodun gave the assurance, yesterday, while inaugurating the long stretch of the Igan-Ishamurin-Odo Shikiti Road in Ago-Iwoye town, Ijebu North Local Council of the state.

“For us in Ogun, our goal is to put the state in the league of advanced economies and make it an investors’ destination of choice. To achieve this, we know the importance of modern day and world-class infrastructure. For this reason, we will continue to rehabilitate existing infrastructure, build new ones and also put them in a position where they will not only stand the test of the time, but also serve as a catalyst for socio-economic development.

“We have identified our focus and have taken as a key priority the development of infrastructure that will ensure the much-desired socio-economic development of the state,” the governor stated.

He noted that the Igan-Ishamurin Odo Shikiti Road was designed to improve the socio-economic life of the people of Ago-Iwoye, as well as the surrounding communities, by making transportation smooth and convenient for farmers when evacuating their farm produce to urban market centres.

MEANWHILE, the Dagburewa of Idowa, Oba Yunusa Adekoya, while delivering the message of Awujale and Paramount Ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, announced the endorsement of Abiodun for second term by all the monarchs in Ijebuland.
He said: “You have worked assiduously and justified why you deserve second term in office.

“The message is clear. You have done very well by fulfilling the promises made to us in 2019. The 2023 is sure and our people will vote overwhelmingly for you.”

Similarly, the Ebumawe of Ago-Iwoye, Oba AbdulRasak Adenugba, who spoke at the event, said: “Though I am not a politician, but the people of the ancient town have come to tell me that it is Dapo Abiodun they want and not anyone else.”

Oba Adenugba said that the administration of Abiodun had restored confidence in government because it kept the promises made during electioneering campaign.

Also, the Orimolusi of Ijebu-Igbo, Oba Lawrence Adebajo, said: “In the short period I have been an Oba, you have changed my perception about politicians as liars. Your words have been your bond. I can see the development you’ve brought into our towns. We love you and our people have told me that 2023 is yours without equivocation.”
