The Governor of Ogun State, Mr. Ibikunle Amosun, has called on residents to be hopeful, noting that the current challenges across the country were but a passing phase.
He reiterated his total support for the policies and programmes of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that “they will bring within our reach and attainment the dreams of our people for a happy and prosperous nation.”
All these were contained in a press release signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Taiwo Adeoluwa and released to the press, the governor thanked the people of the state for their abiding faith in his administration.
According to him said, “Challenges are human phenomena. Great nations of today had, at one time or the other, been confronted with challenges, which they successfully surmounted. Your unflinching support saw us through the first term. I have no doubt that your unwavering solidarity will make us to surpass expectations in our second term in office.”
According to the governor, “We have spent the last 100 days restructuring our finances due to the sudden economic downturn in the country. We participated in the federal government bail-out programme with the active support of our House of Assembly. The Treasury Single Account (TSA), which we introduced, in 2011, and has now got nation-wide acceptance, has enabled us to block leakages in the system. We now look into the future with confidence,” the statement said.
“Furthermore, as we reform our governance in line with current realities, we have paid greater attention to our environment. We are engaging local and foreign investors with tangible results in the number of companies now berthing in Ogun. We are taking stock; looking into new initiatives to raise our internally generated revenue and consolidate our achievements through timely completion of all ongoing projects. We are laying a strong economic base for the future. We have hopes of a better tomorrow.
“We shall remain focused and continue to work even harder to make Ogun State far better than we met it,” the governor said.
