Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun inaugurated a fire service station in Ifo Local Government Area during a campaign stop on Tuesday.

Speaking at the inauguration, Abiodun noted that the local government remained one of the food baskets of the state.

The governor stated that it was important for any reasonable government to ensure the safety of the lives and property of its citizens.

Abiodun said that his government would continue to focus on people-oriented projects, adding that he would not relent in his efforts to make life better for his people.

”This is a date with history. This council which is one of our border local government areas is very important. It is one of our food baskets and we cannot joke with it,” the governor, who is running for a second term in office, declared.

“It is a local government with two constituencies and it deserves utmost priority.

“Between 2018 and 2019 during the course of our campaign, we came to this local government where we had eminent personalities and we promised to deliver on our mandate.

”There is no better way to campaign than to make reference to the promises you made. We are commissioning landslide projects in this local government and other council areas,” he said.

In his remarks, the Speaker of the Ogun House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo, representing Ifo State Constituency 1, commended the governor for ensuring the provision of adequate infrastructure.

Oluomo added that the last time any government inaugurated projects in the local government was during the former governor Olusegun Osoba’s regime.

” We are grateful the fire station is a reality. I can only assure you that the people of Ifo Local Government will give you over 90 per cent votes. We have never had it so good except during your government,” he stated.
