Posted by

The governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, has asked the 20 people from the state who have won national honors to help bring more investments to the state.

In a statement released by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Gov. Abiodun said that the awardees have a lot of power to get more private companies to join his administration’s industrial development programs.

Abiodun said this at a party for the national award winners. He said that their awards show that the state is full of great people who can do great things in all areas of life.

The governor also said that giving the national honors awards to the recipients was a call for them to serve the people and the state more than they ever had before. He said that he expected the awardees to be more involved in the collective vision so that the state could have better and more focused leadership.

“As industry leaders, I also ask you to help bring more investments to our State. Your influence and connections can attract private participation in our industrial development programmes. Investors can take part in our ISEYA core pillars of our development agenda in a number of ways.

“More than these awards, this honor is a call for you to do more service to our people, our dear State, and humanity in general than you have ever done before. Greatness is something that never starts or stops; it is always there.

“As sons and daughters of Ogun State, we expect you to be more involved in our collective vision to give Ogun State focused and high-quality governance and to create the conditions for a public-private sector partnership, which is key to the long-term economic growth and personal prosperity of the people of Ogun,” he said.

The head of state also said that his government had made new investment-friendly policies to make the country a good place for investment to grow. He said that “the innovations cover the land administration, the judicial system, the strengthening of the security network, the creation of new government agencies, and so on.” All of these things have made our state a better place to invest.

He did say, though, that his government would keep making policies and running programs that would keep Ogun State moving in the right direction.

Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President, who was also at the reception, also spoke. He congratulated the awardees on the honors given to them by President Buhari and told them to always be good representatives of Ogun State.

The Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, who is also the Chairman of the Ogun State Council of Obas, thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for the honors on behalf of the awardees and said that they would continue to make the country better.

Other winners include the Olubara of Ibara, Oba Jacob Omolade, (OFR), the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, (CON), Sen. Solomon Olamilekan Adeola, (CON), and business magnate Kessington Adebutu (CFR).
