Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun

OGUN State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun yesterday disclosed that his administration had lined up 40 projects for commissioning on February 3 next year by President Muhammadu Buhari to mark the state’s 40th anniversary.

The projects, some of which are yet to be completed, are among those his administration had embarked upon in the last four years.

Ogun State was created on February 3, 1976 by the administration of General Murtala Mohammed.

The governor who spoke in Abeokuta at a town hall meeting towards the preparation for the 2016 budget assured that his administration remained “focused, committed, undoubted and sincere in delivering the dividend of democracy to the people”.

The meeting was organised by the Ministry of Budget and Planning to sensitise the people about government’s plans and priority projects for 2016 and to obtain stakeholders’ opinions and contributions to it.

The governor equally seized the opportunity to explain why he had embarked on construction of a multi-million naira private residence in G.R.A area of Abeokuta, the state capital.

According to him, he intends to retire to stay in that house till the end of his life, stressing that he had no intention to go and stay in Lagos after living political office.
