The Ogun State Governor-Elect, Mr. Dapo Abiodun, has assured that his administration will capitalize on the natural resources of the state for the benefit of the people. He stated hours after his victory in the just concluded gubernatorial elections that “campaigns and elections are over now; It is time to start tapping into the vast God-given human and natural resources of our state for the rapid development, the overall interest, and benefits of our people”
The incoming governor also guaranteed residents of the state of purposeful leadership centered on transparency and accountability ahead of his inauguration on May 29. He promised not to betray the assurance reposed in him by the people of Ogun State, focusing on infrastructure, roads and agricultural development, among others.
Although the newly elected governor recognized that the race for the state’s topmost job was tough, so he called on other contestants to join hands with him for the benefit of the people. Despite the fact that Ogun State, the third state with the highest IGR in the nation, the governor elect added that his agenda is to create an empowering environment for all stakeholders – the Public and Private organization that will boost the state’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).
