ABEOKUTA—wife of Ogun State governor, Olufunso Amosun, is pleading with the people of the state to re-elect her husband, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, for second term in office to sustain ongoing development in the state.
Olufunso Amosun made the appeal while addressing party supporters at Sokori, Abeokuta, weekend, at an empowerment programme organised by a member of the state House of Assembly representing Abeokuta North, Mr. Olayiwola Ojodu.
She claimed her husband’s second term in office would consolidate the current infrastructural development being executed in different parts of the state.
According to her, “I am always happy when I am called upon to inaugurate projects like this. This is how development can get to the grass roots. Again, projects like this will complement what the governor is doing. He’s always on the move, working. If you believe he has performed well, you have to show this by voting him in for second term.”
Mrs. Amosun told the party loyalists to emulate Ojodu, within the resources at their disposal, stressing that they did not have to be the first ladies, governors or members of the House of Assembly, to empower their neighbours.
She added, “In our little corners, we can help the next person. To some people N10,000 will make a lot of difference in their lives, while to some , N1,000 will do the same.”
