[FILES] Ogun State governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun
The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, said he would not be distracted by any person who has a problem with self-delusion, noting that Ogun State is not anybody’s father’s inheritance.
Responding to a statement credited to his predecessor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, that the 2019 governorship election was rigged in favour of the incumbent, Abiodun said he would rather focus on his mandate and not join issues with anyone who wants to play God.
Amosun had on Friday, said the election that produced Governor Abiodun was fraudulent, vowing that he would ensure the removal of the governor come 2023.
But speaking with newsmen shortly after the grand finale of the 50th anniversary of the Abeokuta Club, Abiodun called on the people of the state to ignore his predecessor, insisting that he would not join issues with him.
“I will not be distracted by any person or persons who have problems with self delusion. I will not be distracted by any person who does not appreciate that Ogun State is not anybody’s father’s inheritance, we are all stakeholders in these commonwealth called Ogun state…,” he said.
Abiodun, who also noted that his administration would continue to be against campaign of discord that would disrupt the peace and continued development of the state, added that his administration remained committed to the development of all sectors of the state economy.
He, however, expressed his disappointment that a former governor and a sitting governor in 2019 would cry that he was rigged out during the election.
“How can we that are on the outside take on an incumbent and then be accused of rigging out an incumbent in the same party, anyone can explain their failure whichever way they like, anyone can also begin to pant and threaten that they will do whatever,” he added.
Abiodun, who also noted that his administration would as a matter of urgency prioritise the development of the President Muhammadu Buhari Estate, added that before the end of the year, a minimum of 250 structures would be built in the estate.
“The President Muhammadu Buhari Estate which is one of the projects I inherited from my predecessor, in another one or two months, you will see that buildings will begin to be visible in that estate.
“I do not have a doubt that before the end of the year, there will be a minimum of about two hundred and fifty medium upper beautiful befitting structures in PMB Estate,” Abiodun noted
The governor who noted that his administration would continue to give Abeokuta, the state capital all the attention it deserves, said that the Ijaiye-Oke-EJigbo-Ake road, Saje-Mokola road, as well as the Onikolobo-Adigbe road are some of the roads slated for attention by his administration.
