A Chairmanship Aspirant in Ogun State, Hon. Adesina Adejumo, has lauded Governor Dapo Abiodun for his steady progress in quality governance in the last 365 days, describing him as a Prince on Divine mission for the betterment of the good people of the state.

Adejumo, also popularly known as Motun by his admirers, said that without any showmanship or pandering to narrow interest, Abiodun has redefined governance in the Gateway State and is diligently addressing some of the challenges foisted on the state, allegedly,  by the past administration.

The Aspirant for the Chairmanship seat of the  Abeokuta North Local Government on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), attributed the unprecedented development in the education sector,  to the commitment of the Governor to restore its lost glory.
He said: "Governor Abiodun's sincerity of purpose and sheer determination has changed the fortunes of the State for good. It is this seriousness of the government and sincerity of purpose that changed that led to the unprecedented development being witnessed by the people of Ogun State today.

"One of the most remarkable achievements of Governor Abiodun is the rehabilitation of 236 primary schools across all the wards in the State.

"Besides these numerous achievements in the education sector, all other sectors of the State have also witnessed unprecedented development."

He congratulated the Governor on his many achievements within a year and urged him not to relent in his effort to take the State to an enviable height.

He also lauded the Governor for embarking on people's oriented projects, which according to him, have direct impacts on the lives of the people.

Adejumo said the Governor's  strategy of focusing on grassroots development was a highly commendable, adding that "majority of the people in the State will benefit enormously from all the projects embarked on by the Governor.

"The projects embarked on by Governor Abiodun are projects with human face and not white elephant projects embarked on by his predecessor.

"These are projects that will improve the economy of the State. Projects that both rural and urban dwellers can benefit directly from."

He listed some of the Governor's road projects to include: Obantoko Road (FAJOL-American Junction-Unity Estate-Gbonagun) Phases I-III, Abeokuta, Idi Aba- Elite-Oke Lantoro, Abeokuta, Abeokuta-Sagamu Interchange, Ikola/Navy-Osi Ota Road, Raypower Road, Ota, State Hospital, Ilaro Internal Road Network, Ota Owode-Idiroko, Molipa-Fusigboye-Ojofa Street, Ijebu-Ode, Asafa Oke-Asafa Isale-Ayegun- Ojofa Street, Ijebu-Ode and Bright Fashion Baruwa Street, Sagamu, among others.

He added that the biggest road project to be undertaken by Abiodun remains the Ijebu -Ode – Epe Road, "a major link between Ogun State and Lagos and an alternative to the busy Lagos-Ibadan expressway."

The Chairmanship aspirant also listed some of the achievements of the Governor in the health sector to include: rehabilitation of two General Hospitals in Ijaye, Abeokuta; and Ilaro as well as the on-going rehabilitation of 236 Primary Healthcare Centres across the State.

He noted that the greatest achievement of the Governor is the regular payment of workers' salaries and absorbing the 1,000 ASCON candidates employed by Senator Ibikunle Amosun at the twilight of his administration

Speaking on his Chairmanship ambition, Adejumo (Motun) said if elected as the Chairman of Abeokuta North Local Government, he would consolidate on the achievements of Governor Abiodun and provide quality leadership to his people at the grassroot.

He vowed to change the fortunes of the Local government area for good, saying his programme for the Local government would be tailored to align with that of the Governor for the State.

Adejumo who hails from the Oke-Ogun part of Abeokuta North Local government, urged the people of Abeokuta North to support his ambition by voting for him enmasse

Oke-Ogun, according to him for almost 30 years now has not produced a Chairman of the local government, neither has it produced Commissioner or any State appointment, not to talk of Federal appointment.

He said: "There are four communities in Abeokuta North Local Government area. They are: Owu Community, Gbagura Community,  Oke-Ona Community and Oke-Ogun Community out of all these four Communities, Oke-Ogun Community has been seriously shortchanged in the past."

According to him, Oke-Ogun is more eligible to produce the next Chairman of Abeokuta North Local Government area of Ogun State than any other constituent.

He  pledged to break the jinx and allow for equal and quality representation if elected to oversee the affairs of the Local Government.
