Egba and Yewa Indigenes in Canada Congratuate Amosun

Egba and Yewa indigenes in Canada have congratulated Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, on his victory in the last April 11 gubernatorial election.

Amosun, who contested on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC) defeated his main challenger, Prince Nasir Gboyega Isiaka of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate.

Amosun, it would be recalled, defeated Isiaka, who was a candidate of Peoples Party of Nigeria, (PPN), in 2011 to become the fourth civilian governor of the Gateway State.

The indigenes, under the umbrella of Olumo Progressive Association Canada Inc, OPACI, also congratulated Ogun people for re-electing Amosun, saying they were not surprised by the decision of the electorate to return the governor for another term.

In a release signed by OPACIO’s president and secretary, Chief Femi Shodunke and Mr Lukmon Afolabi Bakare respectively, it said: “We congratulate you, Mr. Governor on your victory. With the giant strides you have recorded in our state since your assumption of office, particularly in the areas of roads, industrial development, education and infrastructural development, amongst others, you deserved another term in office.”

OPACI submitted that Amosun’s reelection was in the overall best interest of the state, particularly as his government would operate under a Federal Government of the same party.

They said: “No doubt, as our state and the Federal Government are under the same political party, APC, we urge your Excellency to collaborate and synergise with the new government of General Muhammadu Buhari, to tap the manpower, natural resources, economic and industrial vantage positions which Ogun State occupies in the country.”

Emphasising that the votes, which confirmed the residents of the state’s profound belief in Amosun, despite the political shenanigans against his administration, had justified the decision of Egba National Association, ENA, to give the governor the group’s first ‘Award of Excellence,’ OPACI said: “Definitely, the decision of ENA, US and Canada, to give you its maiden ‘Award of Excellence’ has been justified by the victory you recorded in the last gubernatorial election. We are happy we took the right decision and we are proud of this initiative.”

They however pleaded with Amosun to take the ample advantage of his second term to consolidate on his programmes, strive harder and complete ongoing projects on time, particularly the massive road constructions in parts of the state, adding that doing this would erase the negative belief in some quarters that second term governors doesn’t record further development, but a licence to amass wealth at the detriment of the people and the state in general.
