The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has called on Nigerians to exercise patience with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), over the postponement of the Presidential and National Assembly elections.
Reacting to the rescheduled elections by INEC, Governor Amosun during an inspection tour of some road projects in Sagamu and Ijebu-Ode said, “as disappointed as we are as a nation, we should give them the benefit of doubt because they said it was to give Nigerians free, fair and credible election”.
He commended the people of the State for conducting themselves in a civil manner, following the announcement, adding that he was confident the electorate body would do the needful to ensure hitch-free elections.
Amosun, who was accompanied by his Deputy, Chief (Mrs.) Yetunde Onanuga and some members of his cabinet to inspect projects in Ogun East Senatorial District assured the people that his government would not neglect any part of the State in its developmental drive.
On complaints that his government neglected the District in project implementation, the Governor noted that, aside from the construction of four flyover bridges in the District, his administration has constructed Ejinrin-Oluwalogbon, Ikangba-Ilese roads in Ijebu-Ode and Oba Erinwole-Sabo road in Sagamu.
Projects inspected included; Degun, Italapo-Obalende, Balogun Kuku-Oke Aje, and Igbeba roads, in Ijebu-Ode, as well as the ongoing 250-bedded modern hospital in Oke-Mosan; also the construction of Adigbe and Car Wash-Adatan roads in Abeokuta, all which are at various stages of completion.
