ABEOKUTA— Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has said that Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, in the state is “dead and buried” just as he described the recent allegation of N8 billion road contract scam as the handiwork of the people “that ordinarily should be in jail.”
Fielding questions from newsmen, weekend, in Sagamu and Ota during inspection of roads projects, the governor broke his silence on the second term bid, saying “our works will speak for us.”
He said: “This is Sagamu. We started from the Benin/Sagamu Expressway to Oba
Erinwole junction. I have heard what people have been saying and writing, that nothing is on this road.
“But I am happy that everybody is here and pictures don’t lie. The truth is that it is a shame that people that ordinarily should be in jail, people that looted all the good people of Ogun State’s money; they had the opportunity for eight years, what did they do?
“I sympathise with them. They are confused. They are frustrated. They don’t even know what is happening. They are perplexed.
“Everyday they asked themselves, how is he doing it? They see what we are doing and they never believe it is possible but we thank God and the good people of Ogun State for believing in us.”
“Some characters are saying we are not doing anything. Even if they are blind, of course they can feel the equipment.
“I am sure the good people are waiting for them. I am sure they will fight them with their votes. The election is around the corner. But for us, it is work, work and work.
“Without sounding immodest, there is no state in Nigeria that can match the quality of what we are doing, including Abuja.
“Go and check the amount we are taking. This is a world class bridge we are doing here with over 130 pipes.”
