Abiodun advocates self-help projects as catalyst for community, state development

By Jumoke Adeogun, Abeokuta

The Ogun State governor,  Dapo Abiodun, has hinted that the state would experience more development if communities embark on self-help projects. 

Abiodun dropped this hint at the 45th Anniversary of Isanbi Day celebration held on Saturday at Isanbi High School, Ilisan-Remo, Ikenne Local Government Area of the state.

Speaking further at the event with the theme, "Repositioning Ilisan for Economic Gains", the governor Abiodun noted that the development of the state is a responsibility of everyone, as no  government can do it alone.

"I want to assure you all that, as a government, we will continue to support all genuine efforts by individuals and groups that are directed at improving the cultural heritage and the lives of our people in general. 

"We appreciate the fact that no government has all the necessary funds it requires for the development of the society and its people. For this reason, we will continue to welcome and appreciate sincere contributions and recommendations that will help develop our state and improve the socio-economic life of our dear people", he noted.

Abiodun stated that his administration would continue to conduct the business of governance without being distracted.

He added that he would continue to run the government with a fear of God to ensure free, fair and a just society, with view to promoting fairness to all irrespective of age, gender, religious or political affiliation or their geographical location.

The Odofin of Ilisan, Oba Mojeed Sonuga, in his speech, appreciated all sons and daughters for their contributions towards the development of the town. 

He called on those who have been honoured with chieftaincy titles to redouble their efforts to ensure that the socio-economic well-being of the town is upscaled.

The chairman of the 2022 Isanbi Day Planning Committee, Chief Diran Awotide, described Illisan-Remo as a town blessed with economic potentials and inhabited with lovable people that play host to a university and the state's Agro-Cargo Airport, calling on the indigenes to work together to harness the town's potentials for the good of all.
