2019: Obasanjo, Amosun Drum Support for Ogun West

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State have justified why the Ogun West Senatorial District should produce the next governor of the state in 2019.

They spoke in Abeokuta at the 80th birthday ceremony of a former Secretary to the State Government, Deacon Poju Adeyemi yesterday, stressing that the people of Ogun West are competent, qualified and capable of governing the state.

Obasanjo said it will be unfair to deny Ogun West the governorship position in 2019, after more than 40 years of the creation of the state.

He said Ogun West has credible, illustrious and competent professionals in all sphere of endeavour, such as academia, military, civil service and politics.

However, the former president warned the people of Ogun West to sink their differences and come up with a single candidate in the forthcoming elections.

He said the zone has been unable to present a single candidate in previous elections, due to their political rivalry.

According to him, the people of Ogun East Senatorial District have been out smarting Ogun West in previous elections, by standing behind a single, united candidate.

Amosun, while eulogising the celebrant, said the only way to make him happy for the rest of his life, is to make sure that a candidate from Ogun West emerges as the next governor of Ogun State in 2019.

He said the district should produce the next governor in the spirit of justice, equity and fairness.

The governor said the people of Ogun West have contributed immensely to the growth and development of Ogun State, adding that the only way to compensate them is to give them the governorship slot in 2019.

He urged all stakeholders in the state to see reason with him, in ensuring that a candidate from Ogun West takes over from him in May 2019.

Prominent personalities at the birthday ceremony included the Olu of Ilaro and Paramount ruler of Yewaland, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, the Olubara of Ibara, Oba Jacob Omolade, Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Suraj Adekunbi, members of the Ogun State Executive Council and members of the Ogun State Traditional Council.

Nigerians in Diaspora to Support Transformation Agenda in Ogun With Mini Smart City

The transformation agenda of the Senator Ibikunle Amosun led administration in Ogun State has received another boost, as a group, made up of Nigerians, based in the United States, has signified interest to partner with the government.

Coordinator, Nigeria Initiative for Economic Development (NIED) , Dr. Alfred Tofade, who gave this indication yesterday, said the group is set to build a top class estate, which will be a Mini Smart City in the state.

Tofade had led his team, which joined a delegation of the Nigerian-American Chambers of Commerce, to pay a courtesy visit to Governor Ibikunle Amosun in his Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta office yesterday.

He spoke about the passion of the NIED to contribute to the development in Nigeria, especially in Ogun State, adding that the proposed city will include medical facilities of international standard, institutions of learning, recreational centres and professional libraries.

National President of the Nigeria-America Chambers of Commerce, Chief Bintan Famutimi, in his contribution, noted that the bane of Nigerian businesses and business men is the fact that they have goods, which are unknown, urging the government to incorporate the private sector in all its programs, in order to make it work.

Responding, Amosun emphasised the need to tap into the experience of Nigerians in Diaspora, for development back home.

He urged Nigerians in Diaspora to intensify their support for the state, because, "nobody will come and develop the country for us, except Nigerians themselves show the commitment to play critical role."

The governor further stated that before the inception of his administration, Ogun State was on the last rung of the ladder in terms of ease of doing business, but that now, it occupies between the first and fifth position.

He attributed this to his government's efforts at creating an enabling environment, not only in the ease of doing business, but also for the businesses to thrive.

Amosun Commiserates With Aregbesola Over Mother's Death

Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunke Amosun has commiserated with his Osun State counterpart, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, over the death of his mother, Alhaja Saratu Aregbesola.

Amosun, in a statement said the governor's late mother, popularly called Iya olobi, was a devout Muslim, who dedicated her life to the relentless teaching and zealous practise of the core values of Islam.

"Alhaja Saratu Aregbesola's death is a big loss, not only to her immediate and extended family members, but also the Islamic community. With her wise counsel, strictly according to Islamic injunctions, she was able to mould those at home and within her community to live righteous lives.

"I therefore urge the family to be consoled by the fact that she fulfilled her purpose in life through the raising of God-fearing children. Her exceptional humanitarian services also stand as an external testimonial, which her community will forever cherish.

"No doubt, she was a formidable pillar for her son and my brother, Governor Rauf Aregbesola, in his journey through life, particularly during his political struggles. We all appreciate her sacrifices.

"May Allah Subhanahu Wa Taalah grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and also the departed, Aljanah Fridaos", Amosun added.
