Abiodun: Ogun, NNPC to reconstruct Ogijo-Sagamu Road

…unveils 4-km Oba Erinwole Road, Sagamu

The Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, has disclosed the readiness of its administration to collaborate with Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to reconstruct the dilapidated Ogijo-Sagamu Road.

Abiodun, who made this disclosure on Monday at the official inauguration of the 4-kilometre Oba Erinwole Road in Sagamu Local Government Area of the state, said that work would commence on the construction of Hospital Road in Sagamu during the week.

He expressed his dismay that previous administrations left the Oba Erinwole Road unattended despite its direct bearing on the socio-economic lives of the people, which according to him led to the deplorable condition of the important road.

“We realized that majority of these roads have direct bearing to the economic circumstances of our people. One of such neglected roads is this Oba Erinwole Road. By the time we came into office, the road had become a nightmare; completely impassable and caused untold hardship to our people and Sagamu was becoming a pariah among cities because of this neglect.

“I am therefore happy to be here today, to commission this same Oba Erinwole Road that was meant to be a punishment orchestrated by the former governor and narrow-minded politicians of yesteryears towards the Remo people. This project again is a touchstone to our commitment as a promise-keeping administration. We will continue to fulfil all our promises in all parts of Ogun State.

“In our approach to infrastructural development of Ogun State, Oba Erinwole Road was identified among other roads across the state as top priority for completion before the end of our first term.
Till date, over 80 major roads and others (Federal roads inclusive) totalling 400km have been constructed, reconstructed or rehabilitated across the state. This administration in three years and six months has done more in terms of kilometres of roads than previous administrations in the State”, the governor stated.

The governor noted that the road apart from being a major link to Lagos, the nation’s economic capital and live wire of economic activities to Sagamu, it would also provide access to retinue of industries operating in the axis.

Stressing that the road was constructed to meet standard, Abiodun said it would improve the living standard of the people and open up the potentials of Sagamu for more investors.

He emphasized that the road was chosen by the people based on their needs, assuring his government would ensure that all local government areas benefit from road project.

Abiodun further disclosed that graders and other road equipment would be deployed to local government area across the state, to rehabilitate roads at the grassroots.

The governor pointed out that his administration, in the last three and a half years, has been able to rekindle the hope of the people by deploying alternative financial strategies through the public private partnership in executing projects across the state.

While assuring that his government would not rest on its oars till most roads in the state are motorable, the governor once again declared that all the abandoned projects that have direct impact on the well-being of the people would be completed, calling on the people of Sagamu to take ownership of the road, while motorists are urged to desist from over-speeding.

In his goodwill message, the Akarigbo and Paramount Ruler of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, noted that the road before the reconstruction, was one of the most deplorable roads in the state, appreciating the governor by keeping to his words by reconstructing the road.

While thanking the present administration for spreading developmental projects to all parts of the state, the monarch declared that the incumbent administration would be a reference point for years to come in the State.

The Chairman of Sagamu Local Government Area, Afolabi Odulate, said the Oba Erinwole road which is one of the most important roads in the town was in a poor state for a long time, adding that the intervention of the state government in putting it back in good shape is something the people would be grateful for in many years to come.

The Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Akin Adesanya, in his welcome address, said that the road which was constructed to meet acceptable standard, would promote economic relationship between the people of Sagamu and Ikorodu in Lagos, adding that the project provided jobs for the youths as well as impacted on the socio-economic development of people in the axis.

FHC Verdict: Adekoya hails judiciary, says 'no victor, no vanquished'

FHC Verdict: Adekoya hails judiciary, says ‘no victor, no vanquished’

 

 

 

 

The Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, on Wednesday, 30th November, 2022, struck out two suits challenging the May 22nd, 2022 primary election which produced Rt. Hon. Abdel-Majid Adesegun Adekoya (ATTACKER) as the House of Representatives candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for Ijebu-North/Ijebu-East/ Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency in the February 2023 election.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reacting to the judgement, the Deputy Minority Whip of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Abdel-Majid Adesegun Adekoya (ATTACKER) commended the judiciary for taking into consideration what is right and serving justice, appropriately.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I was truly overwhelmed by the judgement. This is what our law institutions should do -always standing by what is right at all times to avoid the miscarriage of justice. The judiciary has once again justified the confidence we reposed in them”, Adekoya said.

 

 

 

 

Speaking further, Adekoya appealed to the duo of Hon. Tele Ogunjobi, Mr. Kenny Bello and other aggrieved members of the party to sheath their swords, noting that it is a “no victor, no vanquished” situation. He maintained that as members of the same party, there is bound to be disagreement but it does not make them enemies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I shall be visiting my brothers – Hon. Tele Ogunjobi and Mr. Kenny Bello very soon to iron things out and map out strategies to ensure our party emerges victorious in 2023. There is no champion for ever. Someday, I’ll vacate this seat and I see them both as perfect successors. As it is usually said that success without a successor is a successful failure. By that time, I shall be willing to offer my utmost support to whoever gets the mandate between them” ATTACKER concluded.

Adeleke Reverses Self On Sack Of Civil Servants, Monarchs

Published

on

Adeleke said yesterday his administration has not sacked any worker and dethroned three monarchs. Adeleke spoke against the earlier announced Executive Order 3, 4 and 5, which stated nullification of employment, appointment made by former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola from July 17, 2022 till his inauguration and vacation of the throne of three monarchs appointed by past administration. The order states: “All employments in the service of Osun State Government made in any capacity into any capacity in all the ministries, departments, agencies, commissions, boards and parastatals after July 17, 2022 are hereby nullified. “All appointments in the service of Osun State Government made in any capacity into any capacity in the ministries, departments, agencies, commissions, boards and parastatals after July 17, 2022 are hereby reversed. “All appointments of traditional rulers made by Osun State Government after July 17, 2022 are hereby ordered to be reviewed to ensure there was strict compliance with due process of chieftaincy declarations and native law, custom and tradition relating to such chieftaincies. In the case of Ikirun, Iree and Igbajo, to avoid further breakdown of law and order, the appointments of Akinrun of Ikinrun, Aree of Ire and Owa of Igbajo are hereby put on hold pending review. Subsequently, the palaces of Akinrun of Ikirun, Aree of Iree and Owa of Igbajo should remain unoccupied, while security agencies are hereby ordered to take charge.” However, the governor through his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, speaking yesterday on a private radio station, Rave FM, in Osogbo, during a talk show programme, ‘Frank Talk’, said Adeleke had not sacked any worker. He said the appointment and employment made by the Oyetola administration would be reviewed to ensure legality and due process, stressing that nobody had been sacked, the executive order was misquoted. All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has described the setting up of review panels by Governor Adeleke as an afterthought designed to arrive at predetermined outcomes. The party urged the governor to settle down to study the handover notes, so as to prevent the blunders he was committing. In a statement signed by its Director of Operations, Sunday Akere, APC said: “We told you from day one that these people have nothing to offer. We can all see from their first action that they are even confused. “They had told us long time ago that they were coming to sack. They came and announced it. Why set up a panel after taking a decision? What they are doing can be likened to doing ablution after observing prayers. Who does that?” Governor Adeleke has ordered the dissolution of non-statutory boards.
