The former Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has said that he is still relevant in Ogun state politics with supporters in various sectors within the state, even though it has been four years since he left.
Amosun said this while speaking to newsmen on Monday, during the launch of a 7-day mega-empowerment programme in Abeokuta, Ogun state.
During the event, Amosun distributed 2,000 units of grinding machines, 2,000 units of sewing machines, 500 units of laptop/desktop computers to students, 500 units of 5kva generators and 100 buses.
The empowerment programme was also extended to the other two senatorial districts of Ogun East and West, because of the massive support and love for him from constituents of those districts.
He stated, “Let me thank all the various associations, our market men and women, National Association of Automobile Technicians, Road transport unions, traders and others because they are still all with us.
“One novel thing about what we are doing today is that we are not limiting this to just Ogun Central even though Ogun Central will have more because I represent Ogun Central, but I know we have our people as well in the East and West, though Ogun East and West have their own Senators and they have been giving their people things, I’m doing this in the Central and I felt that I should extend that courtesy to our people in Ogun West and East.
“It is not only the people of Ogun Central that have been supporting me since, our people from Ogun West and East have also been supporting our course and I feel they should also benefit from this empowerment programme.
“We are distributing 2,000 numbers of grinding machines, 2,000 numbers of sewing machines, 500 numbers of deep freezers, 500 5kva generators and 500 laptop and desktop computers for our students and we are distributing 100 buses to every ward,” Amosun said.
Amosun used the avenue to declare his support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, saying his support for Tinubu remains unwavering.
He also urged his followers and people present at the event to ensure they collect their Permanent Voters’ Cards and remain peaceful before, during and after the 2023 general elections.
“We should all come out and collect our PVCs and we should not fight. This is Ogun state and we should be violence-free. All of us are for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu there is no controversy about that one,” he added.
