My appeal to Ogun governor

Thanks Daily Trust for extending your newspaper sales to Shagamu where I bought a copy today.

As for governance in Ogun State, our Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, is fairly doing well. However, we appeal to the state government to construct the Iperu-Ode-Saapade road linking the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. The road is very critical and is economically viable as it serves the Gateway International Airport located along Iperu-Ilishan road, in addition to its general use by commuters, and especially serving as the main link to Remo North LGA.

Also, the government should strictly enforce the existing anti-open grazing law in all parts of the state. Till date, herders are still seen on the local roads and major highways in the state with their cattle and destroying people’s farms and depriving farmers their means of livelihood.

Furthermore, the government should revive the abandoned long stretch rubber plantation along the Sagamu-Ikenne road. If the plantation is revived, it will be a game changer and contribute to the revenue of the government and provide jobs and economic opportunities for the populace.

It’s important to know that the current government under the Renewed Hope agenda is diversifying the economy by focusing on non-oil sectors.

Lastly, we appeal to the federal government to rehabilitate the Sagamu-Ore axis of the Sagamu-Benin expressway. Kidnappers have turned the axis into their hideout to abduct and escape with citizens because of the very bad condition of the road.
