Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, on Monday, said that it was impossible for his administration to fix the rot in government in the state within its eight-year tenure.
Amosun, who stated this during this year’s Eid-el -Kabir’ message, blamed past administrations in the state for not putting necessary infrastructure in place, saying that the development, which the state was currently witnessing, could not be completed in his two terms in office.
According to the governor, a good successor would be needed to continue the ongoing development in the state .
He said, “My message to Nigerians is that we are on the right track, we do not expect that things that have been bad for years will just be normalised in one or two years. No, even four years is not enough, eight years is not even not enough to fix the rot in government; that is why whatever you do with two terms, let other fresh hands come in.
“With where we have found ourselves, with where we are coming from, it is appearing like things are very tough now, like we are almost getting to the corner now but once we just take the bend, we are going to be on the right path and we will all get there.”
Amosun, while urging Nigerians to work harder, assured them that the current economic hardship facing the country would soon be a thing of the past .
“I believe that it is only tough times that bring the best out of the people of this nation; that is why all of us are thinking out of the box. We know that money is hard to come by these days and that is why we have to work very hard,” he noted.
Speaking on the forthcoming local government election in the state, Amosun disclosed that any candidate, who emerged the winner, would serve the people of the state.
“We are all citizens of Ogun State, the common thing that binds all of us together is that we are all from Ogun State; because of that, we should know that whoever ultimately emerge as winners in the election will be serving the good people of Ogun State. He will not be serving his political party.
“I know that our people will not let us down, we know who we are. You can see, there will be nothing like rancour or violence because the people of Ogun State are peace-loving. So, for me, the local government election is just like any other election,” he added.
