…as former deputy governors rally support for governor
Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, on Monday, reiterated that his administration would construct more roads in the state to further open it for more economic prosperity.

He added that the road was another milestone in the infrastructural development of Ogun to address the huge deficit inherited by his administration.
“This is another milestone in the infrastructural development needed to further develop our state. These are visible projects which are in line with our vision to create prosperity for our people.
“We did not promise to do all things, but we will do all those things that we promised. We will make an appreciable mark by leaving the state better than we met it. We will continue to construct roads, rehabilitate schools and make them more conducive for learning. We will create an enabling environment for industries to strive. Please get your PVCs so that you can vote for us so that we continue with the development of our state” Abiodun noted.
He explained that the road is a federal road that connected Lagos with Ogun, it was constructed by the state government to ameliorate the hardship being encountered by the people who travel on the road on a daily basis.
He further noted that the road the project was another fulfilment of his campaign promises in 2019, which according to him is in line with the vision of his administration to build the future of the state and leave it better than he met it.
Abiodun, however, said that his administration had. ensured inclusive governance by executing at least a project in each of the 20
local government areas, assuring that all sectors would be given adequate attention through building of more houses, construction of more roads, provision of health facilities, while conducive environment would be made for teaching and learning.
Speaking during a courtesy call on the Dagburewe of Idowa, Oba Yinusa Adekoya in his palace, the governor directed the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, to move to the Imosan-Imodi road and commence the reconstruction of the road.
He stated that apart from trying to bridge the infrastructural gap, his administration has grown the State Internally Generated Revenue; repositioned the education and health sectors, while affordable houses were also provided for the people.
“I want to assure you that I know your expectations, I know that there is still a long wish list that needs to be attended to, but I just want to plead that three and seven months is like a flash, the infrastructural deficit that we met on assumption of office requires more than three years and seven months to correct.
“However, as a people-oriented administration, we will continue to be responsive, when you call our attention to something, we will respond to it on time, we will continue to consult with you so that you have a voice and have a say in whatever decisions that we are making.
“When I was in Imodi- Mosan, I told them that road that leads from Ijebu-Ode, Molipa express to Imodi-Mosan, I am going to tell the ministry of works to come and start work on that road immediately, because a few times, my attention had been drawn to that road, ditto for the Aiyepe-Sagamu road which is a long road”, Abiodun stated.
He appreciated the traditional rulers for consistent support and their efforts at ensuring peace and security in their various domains, emphasizing that he would do more if voted for a second term.
“As we prepare for the year 2023 general elections, I want to admonish all of us to ensure that we go and collect our PVCs because without our PVCs, we won’t be able to vote and it is by voting that you can vote us in again to continue with this laudable initiative.
“Those that are here today, we consider you as our disciples, please, go back home and let our people know that they must go and collect their PVCs because you can only vote in the government you deserve or desire by using your PVCs’, the governor noted.
He dmonished parents and guardians to not allow their children to be used as thugs in the cause of the election, saying his administration has lowered the political temperature, by allowing every political party to go about in marketing themselves without fear
He warned that the state government would not tolerate any act of thuggery, vowing that “we will deal decisively against any person, no matter how highly placed that attempts to test our will”.
Oba Adekoya lauded that governor for his style of leadership which he said had engendered development in all parts of the state, saying that Idowa town founded in 1540 with close affinity with Ijebu-Ode, has gotten its fair share of projects from the state government.
He particularly commended the incumbent administration for focusing on road infrastructure, which according to him remained important to the socio-economic development of the state, concluding the governor would perform better in his second term.
Speaking on behalf of the traditional rulers in the local government area, the Obiri of Idobiri, Oba Adebisi Okunbanjo, said they were happy to identify with the Abiodun-led administration, calling for the construction of Ikenne-Ayepe and Okun Owa-Ijesha-Ijebu roads.
Meanwhile, former deputy governors in the state have publicly affirmed their support for the second term ambition of Governor Abiodun

In their respective remarks, the former deputy governors commended the governor for taking the state to a higher level, noting he would do more if he is reelected.
They, however, expressed their confidence that the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) would sweep the forthcoming poll.
Speaking, Governor Abiodun said that it would be the the first in the anal of the state that former deputy governors would be in the same political camp, calling the electorate to collectively vote for all candidates of the APC.
“This is the first time all living past deputy governors will be in the same political camp and party. As you will agree with me, this is great. As you can see all of them here, we are all happy.
“This is a good signal and good development. I want to encourage all eligible electorate to collect their PVCs and vote for APC both at national, state and local government levels”, Abiodun concluded.

APC member allegedly shot dead by SDP thugs in Kogi, security agents urged to invite Ajaka
SECURITY AGENTS MUST FISH OUT, ARREST SDP THUGS WHO KILLED APC SUPPORTER – KOGI INDIGENES
. CALL ON PRESIDENT TINUBU, GOV. BELLO TO CALL MURITALA YAKUBU TO ORDER
. DON’T TAKE US TO OLD, DARK DAYS, INDIGENES WARN SDP, YAKUBU
Hundreds of Kogi indigenes, on Friday night, called on President Bola Tinubu and Governor Yahaya Bello to immediately put machineries in motion to curtail the excesses of thugs allegedly loyal to the Governorship Candidate of the Social Democratic Party in the state, Muritala Yakubu, accusing them of being behind the gruesome killing of a supporter of the All Progressives Congress in Kotonkarfe and many cases of violence recorded lately in the state.
The over 5000 indigenes, under the auspices of Kogi for Kogites Movement, whose members are drawn from all the 21 Local Government Areas of the state, said from non-partisan information gathered from eyewitnesses at the scene of the event, it was reliably gathered that the SDP thugs attacked APC supporters who were on a peaceful rally in Kotonkarfe on Friday.
In a statement signed by the Coordinator, Kogi for Kogites, Ahmed Ojonugwa, the indigenes said the stock in trade of the SDP under the leadership of Yakubu was “to commit gruesome crimes and turn around to play the victim”.
The statement read in full:
“Miffed by apparent rejection by the people of Kotonkarfe during his rally and visit to the paramount ruler of the town, we have been reliably informed that thugs loyal to the Governorship Candidate of the Social Democratic Party, Muritala Yakubu Ajaka, committed a sacrilege by gunning down a lady, identified to have defected to the All Progressives Congress two weeks ago from the Peoples Democratic Party.
“From our non-partisan field polls today, September 29, 2023, it was reliably gathered from eyewitnesses that trouble started when the SDP supporters spotted the large crowd of APC supporters who were staging a solidarity walk in support of Alhaji Usman Ododo, the Governorship candidate of the party.
“Armed and hooded SDP thugs started shooting sporadically to disperse the APC supporters who were staging a peaceful walk. It was alleged that one Haruna Abacha, a supporter of the SDP in Kotonkarfe pulled the trigger that ended the life of the APC woman.
“The sacrilegious act of the SDP supporters is condemnable, criminal, undemocratic and should never be allowed to scale the hands of law.
“Their stock in trade is to commit gruesome crimes and turn around to play the victim.
“We call on the Governor of the state, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to ensure that these strange politicians, who have, right from the beginning of the SDP campaign, shown that they have nothing to offer Kogites other than hate campaign and violence, are seriously cautioned. Perpetrators of this gruesome act must also be immediately fished out and brought to book.
“Has anyone seen the Accord Governorship Candidate, Admiral Jibrin Usman (retd), being involved in this kind of senseless propaganda where human lives are traded? He is a well respected Igala man who has also pointed out the lies of the SDP in public fora.
“We call on the supporters of the APC not to take laws into their hands in the interest of patriotic indigenes. But if things go on this way, true sons and daughters of Kogi State would have no choice but to drag the SDP and its candidate to the highest courts of the land for this evil attempt to drag Kogi State back to the dark days.
“We also call on law enforcement agencies to immediately arrest the said Haruna Abacha and all his collaborators as well as question the security agents attached to the SDP candidate on why they watched thugs unleash mayhem on peaceful and defenceless people. This is unacceptable.”
Gov Abiodun committed to rule of law, democracy”
“Gov Abiodun committed to rule of law, democracy”
The commitment of the administration ofi Governor Dapo Abiodun in Ogun state to ensure the preservation of rule of law, battle corruption and protect tenets of democracy in the country has again been reiterated.
According to a top functionary of the government, apart from prioritising the welfare of the people, the administration is working hard to deepen the people’s beliefs in the nations democratic process.
Kayode Akinmade, a Chief Consultant on Media to the governor, who spoke while answering question of a television programme on Friday, said as a law abiding leader, the governor has always recourse to the judiciary to seek redress for himself and his administration whenever the need arises, rather than engage in self help.
Akinmade stressed that the decision of the governor to approach the court over the matter between him and the impeached chairman of Ijebu East Local Government Area, Wale Adedayo, is a demonstration of his belief in the rule of law and his indisposition to ‘rule of force’.
Adedayo appeared before a Magistrate Court at Isabo, Abeokuta, on a petition filed by the State government against him, over an earlier allegation of diversion of funds meant for Council Areas in the state. Governor Abiodun is insisting that the former Council boss must prove his allegations against his administration or face the the wrath of the law for falsely inciting the people against the government.
Adedayo was arraigned on a two-count charge. According to Akinmade, it is wrong for people to rush to accuse the governor of persecuting Adedayo, who according to him, have “severally apologised to the governor in private while continuing with his ill-motivated misinformation in public.”
“The governor believes that taking Adedayo before the court will deepen our democracy and entrench the rule.of law. Unlike some other people in Governor Abiodun’s shoes who would readily recourse yo sending thugs after and unleashing other forms of violence on those who accused them rightly or wrongly, “our governor decided to seek redress in court. I think he should be commended by all and sundry for this. What he is doing is giving Adedayo a chance to prove his allegations.”
Speaking on the allegation by the impeached chairman that the governor is behind his removal, Akinmade said Adedayo was already facing removal from office before he raised the false alarms.against the governor. “He has already been accused of several impeachable offences before he wrote the letter alleging the governor. He had already reached out to the governor and other leaders of the party to help him stave off his removal. It was when he realized he may not survive the impeachment move that he connived with some other unscrupulous politician in the party to malign the governor and discredit the APC in Ogun state,” Akinmade said.
The Media chief added that claims.by Adedayo that he got zero allocation since he became.chairman of his local government were probed wrong by the FAAC committee in the state when the House of Assembly looked into his petition. He recalled.that other council chairmen in the state also debunked the allegation and even brought Adedayo with them to apologize to the governor for the wrong allegations. “But in spite of all these, he didn’t stop his scripted plot to tarnish the image of the governor. Hence, Governor Abiodun approached the court for redress.”
Speaking further, Akinmade recalled.that the impeached council boss has been in office for more than two years. “One then wonders why he is raising this alarm now. He claimed zero allocation but he has been collecting his monthly N3million security votes regularly. Local government staff in his LGA are not being owed and primary school teachers there are paid as at when due. We all should be asking him to explain what he meant by zero allocation,” he said.
