Abiodun launches campaign for Ogun council poll
•Governor promises rebuilding of Abeokuta-olorunda-imeko road
OGUN State Governor Dapo Abiodun yesterday flagged off the campaign for the local government elections in Imeko Afon Local Government Area, with a promise to reconstruct the deplorable Abeokuta-olorunda-imeko road.
The governor, who was accompanied on the campaign train by members of his commissioners and chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC), also presented the party flag to the chairmanship candidate of the local council, Yaya Fadipe.
Abiodun said his administration had executed 52 projects in the local government area in the past two years.
These include the construction of Oke Ola Road in Imeko, saying the reconstruction of the Rounder-olorunda-imeko Road would ease the hardship being experienced by travellers on the road.
He assured the people that the road would be nearing completion next time he would be visiting the council.
“This government belongs to you; continue to support us in prayers. On my way from Abeokuta, en route Lafenwa to Rounda and Olorunda, until I got here, I saw how deplorable the road is, I feel your pains.
“I want to promise you today that before I come here next, this road would almost have been completed,” he stated.
Inspecting the 2.4 kilometres Ago-oshoffa Road in Imeko town, Abiodun assured the people of the area that the road would soon be completed as laying of asphalt is scheduled to begin in the next four weeks.
Chairman of the Ogun Guangdong Free Trade Zone and a chieftain of the APC in the state, Gboyega Nasir Isiaka, appreciated the administration of Governor Abiodun for his immense work in the state, calling on the people to troop out and elect the candidates of the party at the forthcoming local government elections.
The campaign train also stopped at Yewa North Local Government, where the governor assured the people that local government administra
tion would further be given new lease of life under his watch.
Abiodun also presented the party flags to the APC chairmanship candidate and his deputy, Oluwole Ogunyomi and Bukola Omoyayi respectively
