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.

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

We are keen on resuscitating the agricultural sector in Kwara state. To this end, we are ensuring the prompt and effective rehabilitation of neglected Cocoa plantations and farms existing in the State.
We have raised 50,000 hybrid Cocoa seedlings, which will be distributed to farmers at affordable prices once they mature in 18 months. This will create jobs for our youths and ensure our farmers are participators in the lucrative cocoa value chain.
We will also establish a cocoa nursery in the state to serve as the genuine source of planting materials for farmers while we make plans for the retraining of cocoa farmers on good agricultural practices through the Farmers Field School and Farmers Business School respectively.

Today, I assented to the 2020 appropriation bill that has been designed to truly rebuild our state by driving growth, uplifting our people out of poverty, and addressing infrastructural deficit. Image
We devoted over 55% of our budget to capital expenditure, the highest so far in the history of our state. This will enhance the much-needed infrastructural development across all sectors in the state.
We have also made provisions in the 2020 budget for the poorest of the poor in our society. We intend to commence the School Feeding Programme this year and so many other programmes that will directly benefit the people. This is indeed a budget for the people of Kwara State.

The vast land bordering the Civil Service Clinic, Ilorin, was originally meant for another Govt Secretariat building and parking space for the Clinic but, for years,it was misappropriated and given to Asa Investment Ltd with no evidence of payment.
Alhamdulilah!We‘ve recovered it
Going forward, we have made plans in our 2020 budget to build the much-needed secretariat on the recovered land and save government the money that is currently being spent on rented apartments that hundreds of civil servants have been made to work from.
Picture of the proposed new Government Secretariat building 👇🏽 #Iseya Image

Yesterday, I was at the annual Ganni Festival in Gwanara and I must say that I am impressed with splendor of the culture that was on display. Our administration is working to put festivals like this and other tourist centers in the state on the national map.... ImageImageImage
...We know that to attract tourists to our state, we need to put in place the basic infrastructure and we are doing just that.

Part of what we intend to do is to take the road from the border straight to Okuta to Kosubosu to Kaiama and to Bode Saadu.
Works engineers have already done the bill of quantity and the road has been designed already since we came in. That's part of my discussion with the Minister of Works and Housing recently.

At the round-up session of the 3-day retreat with the cabinet members, I explained to the team the reality on ground: we are building from scratch with very limited resources.

Based on our current reality, our manifesto has been dissected and... ImageImageImage
...we now know that we can’t do everything we had set out to do and, because of this, we will focus on key sectors. We are going to go big on agriculture, health care, education and enterprise - social investment scheme, job creation and infrastructure.
We have few motor-able roads, electricity supply is low, the healthcare and the school system have collapsed. I can't over-emphasise the challenges ahead of us and that means we all have to work together. That is what a cabinet is all about.

Today, I was taking on a tour of the upcoming BUA Sugar factory by the Chairman of the BUA group, Alhaji AbdulSamad Rabiu. BUA is the biggest investor in North Central and I am in fact happy that their factory is sited in Lafiagi, Edu Local Government... ImageImage
We want our state to be the epicentre of sugar production in Nigeria and we are willing to provide every support to businesses that will make that happen.

When fully completed, the BUA sugar factory has the capacity to produce 75% of Nigeria’s sugar need in 10 years...
...but it's starting with fulfilling 25% of the nations’s need as early as next year. I’m also happy to learn that 10,000 of our youths will be employed by this facility. This is a welcome development. #Iseya

For long, our hardworking civil servants have had to take Okada or use taxis for official duties. This is not good. Today, I fulfilled a part my promise to enhance their performance capability by presenting 27 new operational vehicles to the state civil service... ImageImageImageImage
More so, when our administration got in, we met an ineffectual and dilapidated state Fire Service with no modern equipment to effectively safeguard lives and properties during outbreaks. We are taking care of that with the new 300-liter capacity firefighting vehicles that... ImageImage
...were delivered to the Fire Service today. With these supports, I believe our civil servants are better prepared to rebuild Kwara and make it work for all. #Iseya Image
