President Muhammadu Buhari Friday received citizens of Ogun State at State House Abuja, who had come to show appreciation for the visit paid their State a fortnight ago.
During the visit, the President commissioned landmark and legacy projects like roads and housing estates, which he describes as “projects of outstanding quality” during the ‘thank you’ visit.
President Buhari particularly said the new roads would cut travel time considerably, lauding Governor Dapo Abiodun for also working hard on security, and other projects that touch the lives of the people.
He recalled that he began his military career in Abeokuta as a Second Lieutenant in the Nigerian Army, “so I will always see Ogun as home.”
The President appreciated Aremo Olusegun Osoba, a former Governor of the State, who was in the delegation, saying “we have known each other for a very long time.”
Gov Abiodun said the visit was to “express appreciation for the love you have shown our State, and your visit has reassured us that you love our people, and you will continue to give us deserving support.”
He assured that he would continue to make life abundant for the people of Ogun State, through adequate security and economic emancipation.
“Your visit was monumental. We are glad that you are part of the history of our State. I bring you the greetings and appreciation of the more than 300 Obas in Ogun,” said the Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, Chairman of the Council of Obas.
Other members of the delegation were Alhaja Salimot Badru, a former deputy governor, and Chief Sulaiman Adegunwa, a foremost industrialist.
