The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, on Thursday, disclosed that work would begin soon on the reconstruction of Itele and Ota-Idiroko Road.
This is just as people that the Atan- Lusada-Agbara, the Tollgate-Singer, Ota-Idiroko and Ijoko-Ota-Alagbole roads would soon be completed.
Abiodun gave this disclosure in Ota at a combined ward meeting of the 16 wards in the Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state.
He assured the people in the local government that his administration would stop at noting to ensure that the ongoing road rehabilitation across the local government is completed towards ensuring the smooth movement of goods and services.
Abiodun while also noting that he would send two or three graders to the local government to assist them in grading rural roads, also said that about ten electricity transformers would be sent to the local government area.
He implored the party faithful in the local government to continue to hold their ward meetings, saying that his administration would try his best to extend welfare packages to youths and women in the local government.
He assured that his administration would continue to align with the party executive at the various wards in order to identify some of the challenges facing them, stressing that the welfare of party members would be given a topmost priority in the scheme of things
Abiodun while describing as unfortunate the decision of the immediate past governor of the state to support the governorship candidate of another party, said that it is regrettable that the former governor has forgotten so quick how his preferred candidate in another party lost woefully during the last general election.
Abiodun who also noted that his victory during the 2019 general elections became a success story despite the antics, anti-party politics of the former governor, said that he is never perturbed by the outburst of his predecessor, but be focused and looking ahead towards a successful reelection.
“I watched it on television recently a former governor saying he would work for the emergence of our presidential candidate, Senator Bola Tinubu, he is definitely going to win the election. But for someone to sit somewhere and say he is going to work for a finished and successful assignment is vain.
“He is a member of our great party and he said that he will not work for the emergence of our party in our state. He is someone that could not even work to become a candidate of the party and he is saying he won’t work for the party during the forthcoming gubernatorial election. Was he even part of those that worked for my emergence during the last election? God will surprise them,” he said.
Earlier, the chairman of the Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government, Sheriff Adewale applauded the governor for his commitment towards the development of the state, assuring that members of the party at the local government level would work hard in ensuring that the governor’s re-election and the emergence of Asiwaju Tinubu as the next president is guaranteed.
