Last week, the Governor Abiodun-led Ogun State Government received commendation, as the State was awarded The Most Improved State on Security by the Business Day Research and Intelligence Unit; and The Best State in ICT Penetration and Adoption by the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy. These awards are an indication that the careful, methodical and inclusive approach of the Governor to emplacing Ogun State in its rightful place of glory.

The following paragraphs highlight a few of the achievements of the administration in the last six months:

1. Governor Abiodun has ensured that the promised rehabilitation of 236 primary schools and primary healthcare centres across the State has commenced. This is just the first stage of a more sophisticated plan to revitalise the education sector.

2. He has also intervened in, thereby ultimately resolving the impasse needlessly started by the immediate past administration to disrupt activities in the long-existing Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY). It is no longer news that the school has matriculated a remarkable number of students.

3. This intervention in the education sector is not selective, as the Tai Solarin College of Education (TASCE), which was left to rot by the immediate past administration, has also breathed some air of relief.

 4. Governor Abiodun, not forgetting the health sector, has ensured that the Ilaro General Hospital, which was left in a terrible state, received a facelift, while he equally made an order for equipment to be delivered to the hospital and the State Hospital in Ijaiye, Abeokuta.

5. Governor Abiodun recently ordered the immediate recruitment of staff at all cadres to fill vacancies in the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH). Furthermore, the Governor has ensured that the ongoing medical outreach spread across the State, while making certain that its conduct is practically effective.

5. The Governor who has always emphasised the importance of the wellbeing of the people of the State, has empowered numerous market women through the recently launched Oko’wo Dapo loan programme with an interest-free loan. A similar gesture was extended to the widows as well.

6. To further improve the State’s Ease of Doing Business, Governor Abiodun has also signed Executive Orders establishing three councils and agencies including the Ogun State Investment Agency. Also, he forwarded the Ogun State PPP bill to the House of Assembly.

7. What more needs to be said about job provision which, enhanced by the recently launched Ogun Jobs Portal. This platform provides the government with a better understanding of the unemployment and under employment rate in the State and also serve as a better tool for combating this challenge in a more refined and organized manner.

8. Within the short time it has been in operation, the Ogun Jobs Portal has advanced the recruitment of 1,500 teachers to its second stage. This is no wild imagination, as applicants themselves handle their own applications and get feedback accordingly.

9. The word out there is that Governor Abiodun is a man of the people, as he also ensured that so far, 10,000 outgrowers under the CBN's Anchor Borrowers Programme, were drawn from the Ogun State Job Portal. Consequently, Ogun State has been adopted as a model state having allocated land to about 10,000 outgrowers who were unemployed there by turning them into agripreneurs by matching them with Anchors (off takers) that signed a forward offtake contract.

10. The Governor has also approved the promotion of teaching and non-teaching staff in all public primary and secondary schools across the state.

11. Understanding the importance of a secured society, the Governor has made provision of 100 patrol vehicles and 200 motorbikes within his 100 days for all the security agencies in Ogun State.

12. Furthermore, there is indeed a bright future for the continued industrialisation of Ogun State with the smooth relationship that Governor Abiodun has with the private sector. Even before the formal interaction with private investors which the Governor had in Abeokuta, the private sector have shown significant interest in the local production of food items and even the provision of certain infrastructure since his administration came on board.

13. It is also noteworthy to mention the people-oriented conversion of an abandoned “Model School” into a useful ICT hub, and just recently, in it was in this line that the State Government was given an award by the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy during the E-NIGERIA awards in Abuja.

14. Within six months of Governor Abiodun’s administration, there has been for instance, a heavy presence of the Ogun Public Works Agency (OGPWA) across the State. Next month, the Ogun State Government shall be commissioning two roads in Otta, linking Lagos to Ogun, to provide the much needed alternative for commuters and transporters.

15. Citizens and residents in Ijebu-Ode are also witness to the renovation of the stadium in the city. This comes alongside the seamless partnership which yielded the recently conducted marathon race that was held in Abeokuta, the State Capital.

Again, emphasis would be put on the fact that Governor Abiodun is a Governor of the people of Ogun State, and not of some people. Hastily appointing commissioners is not a measure of good performance but the commencement and completion of people-oriented projects, just a few of which have been highlighted here.
