Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun , has explained why he gave more attention to Abeokuta, the state capital than any other areas of the state.
He also alleged that he is being castigated by some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) because of his achievements, which are unprecedented in the state.
The senatorial candidate of the APC from Ogun Central Senatorial district, Amosun, spoke while flagging off his ward- to- ward electioneering across Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun Central Senatorial District.
According to him, no right-thinking governor would abandon Abeokuta, the gateway capital to remain as it was before he assumed office on May 29, 2011.
“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 round day and night to get this done.
“I am not the first governor in Ogun State but I appreciate what they’ve done but if anybody castigates me? No governor worth his salt will abandon Abeokuta.”
The campaign which started from Ewekoro Local Government Area, saw Amosun visiting the ten wards in the council area.
He was received by cheering party faithfuyl and supporters at Obada-Oko, Awowo, Mosan, Wasinmi, Elere-Onigbedu, Papalanto, Arigbajo, Abalabi and Asa as well as Itori wards.
During the visit, Amosun promised them quality representation at the Senate, just as he solicited support for the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Advising them to vote right in the governorship election, Amosun noted that ”the governorship vote is that of liberation” and enjoined the electorate not to allow anyone to come and deceive and enslave them.
“Don’t be deceived into trading your PVC, they will come with promise of loans and grants requesting for your PVC number, tell them they are thrives and criminals, ask them where they have been since all these years that they are now coming on the eve of the election,” he said.
