I have delivered enough housing units in Ogun – Abiodun


Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has said that his administration has delivered more housing units in its first four years in office than all of his predecessors combined.

Abiodun’s Chief Press Secretary, Lekan Adeniran, quoted the governor as saying this on Friday in Abuja at a meeting with the United Nations Development Programme, UNDP, country representative in Nigeria, Mohamed Yahya.

Saga Gist reports that Abiodun’s predecessors since the return of democracy in 1999 are Olusegun Osoba, Gbenga Daniel and Ibikunle Amosun.

According to a statement made available to newsmen by Adeniran, the governor noted that his government had made giant “strides with attendant success in those sectors, vis-a-viz delivering more housing units in the first four years of the administration than all his predecessors combined”.

Abiodun said the success of the women empowerment programmes had made giant strides in poverty alleviation via small scale lending and other initiatives, including the launch of a job portal.

He equally listed the construction of the Gateway Agro-Cargo Airport, with the longest runway in Nigeria (4KM), in record time and the planned investment of over $400 million for an agricultural processing firm, as part of his achievements.

The governor called for cooperation between Ogun State and the UNDP in housing, ICT, energy transition, women empowerment and job creation.
