“I want the governor to please continue to focus on projects that will benefit the people. I know he is doing very well on road construction and other sectors; more attention should also be given to security, Osoba said according to a statement by Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Kunle Somorin.

“The governor was the first to visit me after my arrival. He showed me what he is doing in the state like the Atan-Agbara road. He is determined to construct the Agbado road.

“He is also doing massive housing projects to take care of the middle class. Ogun is the fastest-growing state in Nigeria because the governor is taking the advantage of our closeness to Lagos.”
