Dear fellow citizens of the Gateway State
The year 2019 has been an eventful and cheerful one for us in Ogun State. And in everything, we give thanks. Christ is the reason for the season. Christmas is here and it is one of the most joyous times of the year. It is filled with festivities, love and sharing.
May I therefore thank God Almighty for seeing us through all the odds and gains of the year. I appreciate the love, solidarity and peace with which citizens and residents of the state have continued to live together.. I cherish the abiding faith and prayers of our brothers and sisters across religious lines. I value our investors and the business community for trusting us as the Nation’s Number One Investment destination and indeed in the West Africa sub-region. I commend the political community for their patriotism and continuous engagement aimed at Building Our Future Together.
Ogun State public servants remain worthy and loyal partners. I thank you all. My prayer for all -citizens, workers in public and private sectors, market men and women, traders, artisans, students and even those still seeking gainful employment – is to have a joyful new year and more fulfillment in all your pursuits for a better tomorrow.
I am indeed honoured and grateful to hold your mandate. I wish you all a very merry, safe, and joyous Christmas and peaceful and prosperous New Year.
Igbega Ipinle Ogun, Ajose gbogbo wa ni
