Aftermath Of APC Leaders’ Visit, Obasanjo Says Amosun Transforming Ogun State


Amosun-OBJComing on the heels of his recent public spat with President Goodluck Jonathan, former President Olusegun Obasanjo has thrown his weight behind the urban renewal programme and other developmental projects embarked upon by the Senator Ibikunle Amosun-led government in Ogun State.
Obasanjo noted that things were now getting better in the state which is under the control of the opposition, All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former president, who spoke at the 2013 Ogun State Christmas Carol held at the June 12 Cultural Center, Kuto, Abeokuta, on Sunday, noted that the massive road projects and construction of ultra-modern model schools had brought landmark improvements to the 20 local governments of the state.
He further described Amosun’s achievements as breathtaking and a right step in the right direction.
“Things are getting better everyday, getting better everytime in Ogun. When I was talking of roads in Abeokuta, they said I haven’t been to Ijebu-Ode and Sagamu. On getting to Ijebu-Ode, I saw if not better bridges than that of Abeokuta being constructed. What about the ones in Ilara; what of Ayetoro?
“If we have good infrastructure, business will thrive, economy will increase and that is what you are doing across the state”, Obasanjo said.
