Abiodun Vows To Make LGs’ Relevant Arm Of Govt



The governor-elect in Ogun state, Prince Dapo Abiodun has promised to bring back the lost glory of local government administration towards ensuring that they truly reflect a third tier of governance.


Abiodun also assured that his administration will create the needed atmosphere for Private Public sector Partnership (PPP) that will grow and effectively utilize the potential wealth of the state.


The Ogun governor-elect gave the assurance yesterday while delivering his victory speech at his country home in Iperu-Remo, Ikenne local government area of the state.


He noted that local government administrations remain the closest governance to the people, also vowed to run a government that will create a beneficial synergy towards quickening the pace of development in all the local government areas of the state.


He also assured that his administration will remain focus by giving qualitative governance that is responsive, open and accountable to the people of the state.


Noting that the state require funds to execute developmental projects across the three senatorial districts of the state, Abiodun said that his administration will concentrate on developing agriculture, and also open rural roads, “in order to increase the output of food and cash crops, create wealth for farmers as well as ease challenges of moving farm produce to markets within and outside the state”.


Fielding questions from journalists, the governor-elect dismissed insinuations over the probability of probing the outgoing Ibikunle Amosun’s led administration, stressing that such is premature.


“Anger does not have a place in my heart. I believe the people of Ogun State have spoken and so be it. The governorship journey wasn’t because of Amosun or Abiodun but about the people of Ogun State and so that was why I kept telling the people of Ogun State to vote for us. It is purely about the state.”
