Represented by his deputy, Noimot Salako-Oyedele, the governor noted that the policies and programmes of his administration are done in the best interests of the majority of the citizenry, irrespective of ethnicity, religion or political affiliation, or social status.

He said, “What you see in our system is a strategic approach towards the formulation and implementation of our policies and programmes which are geared towards the welfare, wellness, and wellbeing of our people.

“The ongoing developmental strides being experienced across the state are clear demonstrations of our administration’s resolve to continue to be fair, just accountable, transparent, equitable, and dedicated to a democratic ethos.

“On this note, this government will continue to accord the people of the state an important position in the demonstration of the sincere commitment to good governance. We beckon on all critical stakeholders to continue to join hands with us in the task of building our future together.”

The Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Mr. Olaolu Olabimtan, said the governor is not only committed to completing all the ongoing projects but he is also ready to commence others that will make life more meaningful for the residents.

Contributing, former Senator, Ogun Central, Sen. Gbenga Obadara, said the government needs to look into the road that leads to the train station at Laderin in Abeokuta as it is a monument to the people of Egbaland as well as Adatan Road.
