Predictably, the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun mfr will be returned to office for a second term in an expectedly keen governorship election contest. The interesting thing about this forthcoming election is the fact that it has presented us with a unique opportunity for a multi-layered assessment of the governor Abiodun’s signature achievements in the last three and half years.
What is more interesting is that this assessment has brought to the fore that good governance, coupled with integrity and resourcefulness, that political god-fatherism and monetary inducements to sway voters in Ogun state politics is fast eroding in the face of evolving sophistication of the electorate who are hardly swayed by monetary inducements.
The people are now more than ever politically mature and well informed to determine conscientiously who leads them with their votes.
This is why the consensus of opinion across the Ogun State political spectrum and even beyond is that the tested and trusted Dapo Abiodun deserves a second term as governor and his continuity agenda will be most appropriate and beneficial to all and sundry in Ogun State.
Indeed, a seamless transition of the Dapo Abiodun’s administration to second term in office would provide a continuum of progress, stability, sustainability and consolidation of an unchanging quality of people oriented programmes, policies and projects.
In the spirit of good governance and purposeful leadership that characterized his first term in office, Dapo Abiodun has pledged to work with conscience and integrity for the good people of Ogun State, to continue to uplift their socio-economic wellbeing and ensure that a lot of them move from the lowest rung of the ladder to at least the lower middle class by reducing the poverty level considerably
