A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun, Mr. Tope Armstrong Akintunde has applauded Governor Dapo Abiodun and his Lagos State counterpart, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on the recently signed Lagos-Ogun Joint Commission, saying the initiative was a bold step that would impact greatly on the socio-economic development of the two states.
Akintunde, the CEO of Aerofield Homes gave this commendation while speaking with newsmen in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
He said “what drives economy all over the world is a partnership. It is in the light of this reality that I want to say synergies and initiatives like this are welcome. It is a good step towards maximizing the abundant potentials in human, financial, and other natural resources that will ultimately help in creating a better society and make life more bearable for all”.’
The estate merchant disclosed further that “it is under initiative like this that both governors are combining strength to fix the impassable Sagamu-Ogijo-Ikorodu road as well as Abeokuta-Sango-Lagos expressway among others. All these when fixed will impact positively on the lives of the residents of both states”.
The APC chieftain added that “with the proximity of Ogun State to Lagos, it has a lot to gain from its huge economy and this I am sure is going to be a plus for the residents of the state.
“It is on this note that I am lauding Governor Dapo Abiodun for being very creative with the issue of governance and that is simply because his administration in the last two years has focused on efforts to make life much easier and better for the people of the state”.
