Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has urged the people of Ogun West to embrace unity and peace in pursuit of their political aspirations in the state. Speaking on Thursday at a book presentation in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, Amosun called on the politicians and traditional rulers in the senatorial district to work in unison with a view to effectively articulating the interest of their people.
Represented by the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Jide Ojuko, the governor pointed out that failure to work together is antithesis to progress in any society. The book titled OGUN WEST: The Dawn of a New Political Era, was written by a former Commissioner of Housing, Hon Daniel Adejobi. In his speech, Adejobi assured other senatorial districts of Ogun West of his readiness to work hard and in harmony to realise his aim in 2019.“I know the position of an executive governor cannot be given away on a platter of silver; it has to be keenly contested for among many political parties, but with God, all things are possible,” he said. Political stalwarts in the state, including the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Suraj Adekunbi and other members of the House were at the presentation, while Professor Biyi Afonja chaired the occasion.
