2017 Democracy Day: Why Amosun Steps Down Rally

Saturday, May 27, 2017 9:13 am



Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has directed that there will be no rally at the stadium this year to commemorate the Democracy Day in Nigeria and the 2nd anniversary of his 2nd term in office. Rather the occasion will be marked with inspection tour of some projects across the state.

This was revealed in a press statement, signed by Barrister Taiwo Adeoluwa,
Secretary to the State Government. Adeoluwa quoted the governor as saying the reason for the move is in appreciation of the fact that the state is “work in progress”.

In this regard, all government functionaries, interested Civil Society Organisations and other stakeholders are invited to join the governor on the trip, which will take off from the Government House, Oke-Igbehin at 7 in the morning on Monday, May 29.

The tour will be rounded off with the commissioning of the MITROS Residences at the GRA, Ibara, Abeokuta.

The governor is using this special occasion to once again “appreciate Ogun stakeholders for their tremendous support and prayers over the years.”

He added: These support and prayers have been largely responsible for the massive turn-around of the fortunes of the State, especially in the area of infrastructural development. As we journey on and continue to work tirelessly to further fulfill our mandate to ‘Rebuild the State’, we urge you not to relent as it is not yet uhuru.”
