The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, on Friday flagged off campaigns for his re-election ahead of the February poll.
Mr. Amosun’s campaign launched in Remo North Local Government area of the state with a visit to the ten wards in the council.
The governor assured the “aggressive” even distribution of wealth and capital projects that would engender the urbanisation of the rural areas across the state.
He said the best was yet to come to the state.
“Though people say we give too much priority to road construction and infrastructure, yet a lot still needs to be done, especially in our rural areas,” he said.
“On my way here, I saw some of our roads that are in poor conditions, though you are aware of what we are doing across the state and in your neighbourhoods. A lot still needs to be done to ensure the rural dwellers enjoy the dividends of democracy.”
Mr. Amosun added that his administration would not renege on its responsibility of providing basic social amenities and develop the rural communities in its bid to ensure better lives for the Ogun populace.
“We would continue to build schools, healthcare centres and construct roads until our people have felt the wind of change blowing across the state,” he said.
He added that in the last four years, his administration had done a lot to open up the state for investment and industrialisation that has spurred developments in other sectors of the economy, adding,”but we focus more on making life worthwhile for the rural dwellers.”
