I have received with serious concern, news of the developments in the protests in the Sango axis of Ogun State over the poor condition of the Federal Roads in the vital area: Lagos-Sango-Abeokuta Expressway, Ota-Idiroko, and Sango-Oju Ore roads. ImageImageImageImage
This is understandable, and no security agency will intimidate or stop any protester from making their needs known. ImageImageImageImage
However, while we have already initiated palliative works on Ota-Idiroko Road; the same thing will commence on the Ota area of Lagos-Sango-Abeokuta Expressway where more, needed materials and equipment will soon be delivered; and full reconstruction of the Sango-Joju Road is...

We have appointed the winner of the @BBNaija Lockdown, @itsLaycon Youth Ambassador of Ogun State in addition to house and cash gifts.

I relayed this development today, when I played host to Olamilekan Moshood Agbelesebioba AKA Laycon in my Oke-Mosan office in Abeokuta.
The appointment and gifts are a celebration of Laycon's good character, intellect and virtues which were proven to the whole world on live TV as better choices than vices.
A proud son of Ogun State, Laycon displayed the essence of focus in the face of temptations and provocations. This is the true Ogun State spirit, and it indeed confirms that this earned him his academic achievement at the University of Lagos.

Today, we have more than enough reasons to jubilate and reflect on our joint growth in Ogun State, as the world habitat is celebrated alongside teachers all over the world. Our habitats are like our teachers: they accommodate our inadequacies as we get better.
This is why we have prioritised housing infrastructure and will be delivering 12,500 housing units before year 2023.
I disclosed this at the commemoration event held in Abeokuta, where I I detailed that the @OGSGOfficial will independently build 2,500 affordable units & 10,000 jointly under the Social Housing Scheme of @MBuhari's Economic Sustainability Plan as one of the...

As Nigerians, we have before us, a better Nigeria that can only be attained by our collective allegiance, hope, and readiness to harness the numerous human and material resources with which the Creator has blessed us. ImageImageImageImage
I expressed this stance earlier today, when I joined other Christian faithful for the Special Church Service at the Cathedral Church of St. Peters, Ake marking the 60th National Day Celebration. ImageImageImageImage
While we celebrate our bright future this Diamond Jubilee, we must reflect on our past as a united Nation that has stayed strong in the face of her economic and security challenges, especially as we emerge from the COVID-19 scourge. ImageImageImageImage

At the State Executive Council Meeting yesterday, we approved construction of three roads in the State. These are the 4.65km Akute-Denro-Ishasi and 2.3km Olusegun Osoba Twiney roads in Ogun Central. The third is the 2.3km 6-lane Molipa Expressway in Ogun East. ImageImageImageImage
Since the goal is to ensure safe road travel for the people, construction works will begin immediately and subsequently extend to other roads in need of similar attention. ImageImageImageImage
I plead with you, the good people of Ogun State, especially residents of these areas as well as those we are currently working on such as the Panseke-Adigbe Road, to bear with us, considering the difficulties occasioned by the rainy season. #BuildingOurFutureTogether #ISEYA ImageImageImageImage

Today, schools resumed physical classes across Ogun State, as the economy recovers from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We as a Government are doing everything right, including workers' welfare, to return Ogun State to its enviable place of economic prosperity. Image
For the collective wellness of our children, I urge school managements to remain committed to the hygiene measures and facilities put in place in preparation for the reopening.
I congratulate all pupils and students returning to class today, and wish them a safe academic year. #BuildingOurFutureTogether #ISEYA

Bringing a definite stop to the global vices of child abuse and human trafficking is an essential role of government, to ensure security of lives for collective development. ImageImageImageImage
I was ably represented by @NoimotOyedele at today's inauguration of the State Taskforce Team on Human Trafficking, which is part of our efforts to corroborate those of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, @naptipnigeria at the national level.
This follows what we had earlier done at the state level, including: domestication of our Violence against Persons Prohibition, VAPP Act; empowerment of relevant agencies; & synergy with Civil Society Groups & other stakeholders on continuous...

The Contract/Project Review Committee submitted their report to me in my Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta office today. ImageImageImageImage
The Committee was set up in July, 2019 to re-evaluate projects awarded 2009-2019 towards identifying significant ones, conformity with due process, and contingency for continuity.
This is along the lines of the continuum ideology guiding our steady and intensified completion and utility-driven conversion of inherited projects that have direct line of benefits to the good people of Ogun State.

... with tolling put in place after the reconstruction.
The safety of road users as well as the economic significance of our key roads is crucial. This also brings attention to the Agbara-Lusada-Atan Road, whose poor condition is a red flag for Ogun State's industrial prosperity but which we are also in the process of taking over.

At the Aso Villa, Abuja, I presented to President @MBuhari a photo documentary detailing the achievements of our Administration in 52 weeks in Ogun State. ImageImageImageImage
His Excellency will have near first-hand experience of the many strides taken and progress made in the #BuildingOurFuture Together Agenda within a short and unusual time.

Earlier today, I was at the Panseke-Adigbe Road to inspect its ongoing reconstruction project, where site engineers are now laying asphalt amongst other works. ImageImageImageImage
Though not awarded by this Government, it is a project funded by our Administration for the primary reason of taxpayers' welfare, especially as it forms a major part of the State's entry points. ImageImageImageImage
Other road projects ongoing on Owode-Ilaro, Ijebu Ode-Epe, Sagamu, Lafenwa-Rounda, Abeokuta-Interchange-Sagamu are pointers to our readiness to develop road infrastructure as a priority. ImageImageImageImage

It has become necessary, as a precautionary move, for me to urge the motoring public using the Sagamu-Interchange-Abeokuta Road as well as others currently being constructed by our Administration, to drive carefully on these roads. ImageImageImageImage
Engineers working on these roads would usually seal off one of two dualised lanes, so that as work continues on one, traffic flow may be managed on the other. ImageImageImageImage
This warrants a strict “no parking” policy on the open lane on which motorists are strongly advised not to overtake other vehicles. ImageImageImageImage

On behalf of the good people of Ogun State, I congratulate @akin_adesina on his re-election as President of the African Development Bank, @AfDB_Group. Image

I wish him a successful new term that will steadily continue to take the African region to greater heights. #BuildingOurFutureTogether

When I received Mrs Ulla Mueller, Country Representative (Nigeria) of the United Nations Population Fund and the entire @UNFPA team in my office just now, I disclosed that our Government has approved the payment of our counterpart funding for the year 2020 to the Agency. ImageImageImageImage
This will be the first payment in the last five years, despite the continued support we have continued to receive from the Agency in the areas of family planning; maternal health; response to gender based violence; population dynamics and education. ImageImageImageImage
Our Government prioritises population and gender equality, so we have taken serious steps towards strengthening our relevant laws and agencies.

The appointment of Aremo Olusegun Osoba as Chairman, Governing Council of the Nigerian Institute of Journalism, NIJ is a laudable, well-deserved one. Image
Chief Osoba fits perfectly into the apex role, having spent his life building a career and reputation in professional journalism. This has not in anyway deterred the marks he has made as an astute administrator and statesman.
I am confident that this appointment by a Council of the brightest minds will not be regretted, as Baba Osoba will diligently answer the call to service and bring a rebirth to the Media. #BuildingOurFutureTogether

The limited free rein of the serial killer, Feyisola Dosunmu, who in the last few months killed about nine people in the Ogere/Iperu area of Ogun State has now been brought to an end by men of the @PoliceNG, Ogun State Command. ImageImageImageImage
Before anything else, I must appreciate that the killing spree will now stop. It is however unfortunate that the killer engaged officers and became a casualty, according to the debriefing I received. ImageImageImage
I commend the Commissioner of Police, Mr Edward Awolowo Ajogun and the entire Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police for following up alongside other security agencies on this case which had necessitated placing ransom. #BuildingOurFutureTogether

I have approved the construction of two fire stations in Ifo LGA & another in Isheri North, Obafemi Owode LGA, even as our Administration has acquired new fire trucks to aid the Ogun State Fire Service in the discharge of their duties. We are also refurbishing our existing trucks ImageImageImageImage
I disclosed this today while inspecting one of the trucks at the Arcade Ground at my Oke-Mosan office in Abeokuta. There, I further highlighted how we have detailed all existing fire stations, while embarking on a comprehensive rehabilitation of same across the State. ImageImageImageImage
One of such previously unbefitting stations was one located around Mowe-Ibafo which we are now relocating for better visibility and accessibility.
