Traditional rulers in Ogun State under the aegis of the Progressive Royal Fathers of Ogun Central, have endorsed the second term bid of Governor Dapo Abiodun.

The monarchs said they backed the governor’s re-election bid because of his “sterling and creditable performance” in office.

Addressing newsmen on behalf of the royal fathers after their meeting in Itori, Ewekoro LGA, yesterday, the Olu of Itori, Oba Abdul Fatai Akorede Akamo, said 72 monarchs, after meeting with the governor on Wednesday, voiced their support for his continuity in office come 2023.

He said, “We throw our weight behind him; we will do all necessary things to make his coming back in 2023 easy. Our mantra in the Progressive Royal Father’s Forum is eight years for Governor Dapo Abiodun, and we are giving him 100 per cent support.”

Akamo, while noting that the state under the leadership of the governor had witnessed tremendous development, commended the huge investment on the agro cargo airport, which he said was a thought-out project in the first term of the governor.
