Following controversial reports of 'partial' style of leadership, the governor of Ogun state, Ibikunle Amosun, has denied neglecting some parts of the state for others.
The governor while speaking on Thursday, January 10, during the kick off of his ward to ward senatorial campaign at Ward 9, Owowo, in Ewekoro local government area said, in the past seven and half years of leading the people of Ogun state his administration has never neglected any part of the state for others.
Amosun who is is contesting for Ogun West senatorial seat in the National Assembly at the completion of his eight-year second term in office said, major towns in Ogun had the feel of his administration in terms of development.
“Why am I being castigated? Abeokuta was made the State capital over 40 years ago and the only offence I have committed is to have developed Abeokuta, but I tell you, no sane governor will neglect Abeokuta, else that governor will see the result."
“I have never neglected other areas. We have one of the best flyovers and roads of our administration in Sagamu, there are two flyovers in Ijebu Ode with good roads and the same things are done in Ijebu Igbo and Yewa.
“What we’ve done is that when we do three things in Abeokuta, we do two or one in other places and we are running around day and night to get this done. I am not the first governor in Ogun State but I appreciate what they’ve done. No governor worth his salt will abandon Abeokuta," the governor stated.
