Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun has been commended for his pragmatic style of governance, particularly for establishing a polytechnic in Ipokia Local Government Area of the state.
A former member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Abiodun Akinlade, who made this observation in a statement at the weekend, said the setting up of the institution is an indication that the governor is committed to ensuring that the Ogun West zone catches up with other zones in terms of development.
Amosun performed the foundation-laying ceremony of the Ogun State Polytechnic, Ijaye-Okembo, Ipokia, last week, after the bill to establish the institution was passed by the House of Assembly and signed into law in March by the governor.
Akinlade, a governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said the choice of Ipokia and Ogun West for the new institution is appropriate and timely, adding that Amosun has become the architect of a new Ogun State, with his landmark projects spread across the state.
He said: “After over 40 years of creation of our dear state, Governor Amosun has once again written his name in gold and the people of Ogun West will never forget his deliberate endeavour to develop our zone. This is the first full-fledged state institution to be established in an Ogun West community and we are very appreciative.”
Akinlade, who is the Baba Adinni of Yewaland, noted that the establishment of the institution will not only open up the area to development, but it will also have a positive impact on the socio-economic growth of the town and Ogun West at large.
He added: “This is the season that Ogun West has been waiting for. Aside standing with our aspiration for governorship in 2019, the governor has also chosen to enhance the educational capacity of our youths and also generate employment for our people. I want to urge all and sundry to continue to support Amosun in its bid to enhance the quality of education in the state.”
