By Olorunfemi Adejuyigbe
Ahead of the 2023 general election, chieftains, leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun Central Senatorial District, have donated vehicles and motorcycles to Governor Dapo Abiodun, as a form of support towards his second term bid in office.
The governor equally received vehicles from the leadership of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) in the state.
Receiving 10 Sports Utility Vehicles and 10 motorcycles from the Ogun Central APC and 3 SUVs from ALGON, on Thursday, Governor Abiodun expressed delight at the gestures and thanked the donors.
He said that his administration would not be bothered by architects of confusion in the state, but would continue to leave the doors of his administration open to all those who want to constructively engage with it.
He added that he found it amusing and absurd that some people still fall prey to what he described as unfounded rumours and illusion that there is another governor aside his humble self.
“It is very unfortunate what desperation and frustration can push people to do. We will not be distracted by the architectures of confusion, but we will continue to leave our doors open to those that want to constructively engage with us and join with us.
“Those whose intentions are genuine that want to come back home and be part of our fold, I am using this medium to assure them that our doors are wide open.
“For all those that have been confused, all those that have been deceived, all those that have been misled, I am sure, by now, things are very clear to them. There is only one governor in this state as there can only be one governor at a state at a time. By the grace of God, I am the only governor that Ogun State has, any other person or imposter is only doing a macabre dance”. The governor said.
Abiodun reiterated that all those who picked up forms for elective positions during the just concluded primaries of the party but did not receive the nomination would be compensated, adding that the administration in the state would continue to see them as stars of the party.
“There are no winners or losers, we must consider all of us as winners because we are all members of one great party. we had about 182 aspirants aspiring to go to the House of Assembly of just 26 seats, over 85 were aspiring to go to the House of Representatived of just 9 nine seats. It further underscores the fact that our party has done very well, it is only in a party that has done very well that you find so many aspirants.
“I can assure you that for all those that did not emerge, you remain our stars and our winners, we will find ways to compensate, to appreciate you and ensure that you remain relevant in the scheme of things politically. I do not want you to be discouraged,” he noted
Abiodun said the latest statistics from the National Bureau of Statistics which revealed that the Ogun is ranked first in the percentage of people with employment in the country is no joke, explaining that the feat was only achievable because his administration went about it with its various policies centered around making the people of the state benefit a whole lot.
“Two days ago, I saw some statistics from the National. Bureau of Statistics that showed the state in order of percentage of employment per state, in all the states in the country, we ranked first with 74% in the percentage of people employed, people who have jobs that occupy them about eight hours a day, the next state to us is with I think 66%.
“It is not by accident, it is because we purposely worked for it and we went about it. In our first hundred days in office, we had a job portal in place which allowed us to harvest all those who were either under employed or unemployed and we began to match them with job opportunities we created.
“We are building affordable homes and those homes are offering affordable homes to our indigenes as well as also giving our artisans, bricklayers, our welders, painters job opportunities, so, we are continuously looking for ways and means to create job opportunities,” he said.
The governor, who assured members of the party in the state that his administration would continue to remain visible, said his administration would continue to implement policies and programmes, inspect and commission projects across the state.
Abiodun, however, said he was inspired by the donations which he said is unprecedented in the state, commending the leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress in the Ogun Central Senatorial district and the Association of Local Government of Nigeria for their gesture.
Earlier, a leader from the Ogun Central Senatorial district; Dipo Akingbade and the Chairman of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) who also doubles as the Chairman of Ijebu-Ode Local Government; Emilola Gazal, commended the governor for embarking on notable projects across the state.
The Chairman of the party in the state, Chief Yemi Sanusi said that the donation of the Sport Utility Vehicles and motorcycles by leaders of the party in the senatorial district is an attestation to the good work the governor is doing in the state

5 MAJOR FACILITIES A HOUSE FOR RENT SHOULD NOT LACK
5 MAJOR FACILITIES A HOUSE FOR RENT SHOULD NOT LACK
BY DENNIS ISONG
House owners complain about how people do not value their property but what they fail to do is assess the real problem(s). To be realistic, if people are not getting anything worthwhile from your property, you can’t blame them for their lack of enthusiasm.
I know a house where tenants suffer dryness for 8 months of the year from their well. The only time they get to enjoy water is that month of the year when it rains consistently and once the rain stops being frequent, they go back to experiencing drought.
Renting out your house is not the problem but the question is does it have all catchy facilities? Facilities go a long way in helping a rental property get tenants in no time.
Facilities are important. We can’t do without them. And any house lacking some of these facilities is not considered to be a complete house.
What are these facilities?
- Water supply
We all know how important water is to our daily lives. Having a house for rent which has a borehole is a big plus. This is essential especially in Nigeria where we rarely get water from the water cooperation, so making provision for that is one of those things people look out for before renting an apartment.
A standard house for rent must have a security personnel guiding the property. Asides this, all security measures must be in place to the extent that not just anyone can gain access to the property. Security doors are not left out as well.
A proper house for rent should have a cleaner that ensures the cleanliness of the environment. This facility is one of those things that attract potential tenants. You may feel the tenants are supposed to be the ones to do that like what most people grew up to know, however, things have changed and house owners need to put a class/standard on their property.
- Bathroom amenities
The plumbing fixtures, shower/tub should be in good condition. For older homes, if you know you will need to do a remodel or renovation in future, you should be prepared to know this reality when looking at the home, not after you move in.
For tenants who own cars, parking is a very important facility. Homeowners for rent should consider a large parking space for their tenants. Unfortunately, parking spaces are no longer a priority in Nigeria. Some wouldn’t even mind building on a space meant for cars.
6.Properly tiled floor
By now, it is expected that houses in Nigeria are meant to be tiled. Gone are the days when floors are left bare. In this present age, a house without a tiled floor is not considered modern.
- Gated compound
Unlike foreign countries, one of the things people look out for before renting a house is how tall the gate is. Now imagine that your property doesn’t have a gate at all, it might be a little difficult having interested people rent the place. Apart from security, people like to have their privacy. No random person on the street needs to know the activities going on in the compound.
