Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has described the massive infrastructural projects of the Senator Ibikunle Amosun led administration in Ogun
State as unparallel in the history of the state.
Obasanjo gave the commendation in Abeokuta during a special prayer session organised for Amosun to mark his 56th birthday.
The former president noted that things are now better in Ogun state, saying that ’’This event is a testimony of what God has done in your life and what he has made you to achieve in the state since you assumed office. As far as infrastructure is concerned, you are doing marvelously well’’, Obasanjo said.
He also commended the state Executive Council for working with the governor as a team “otherwise you will be going in different direction and if the house is not in order, the governor will not have peace of mind.”
Speaking on behalf of the EXCO members, Secretary to the State Government, Barrister Taiwo Adeoluwa described Amosun as an agent of change.
“It is an exceptional privilege to serve under him. His passion and commitment to add genuine value to Ogun state is commendable and he is a committed statesman who is ready to make a change.”
Others who eulogised Amosun at 56 included the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Suraj Adekunbi who spoke on behalf of the state legislature and Mr Oluremi Obayomi who spoke for the body of Permanent Secretaries.
They all agreed that Amosun has simplified governance in the state with is numerous developmental projects across the state.
In his response, Amosun said his own idea of birthday celebration should be an opportunity to show love to the less privileged and offer more selfless service to the people of Ogun state.
“There is still more to be done for the people of the state. We should not take them for granted and as a government, we pray for more capacity to do more’’, the governor said.
He thanked all the good people of Ogun state for their support so far, promising not to disappoint them.
Among activities to mark the governor’s 56th birthday was his visit to Borstal Training Institution, Adigbe, Abeokuta where he presented gifts to the students of the institution
