Dapo Abiodun makes a U-turn over Amosun’s abandoned projects

The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has made a U-turn over his initial plan not to complete some abandoned projects initiated by his predecessor, Ibikunle Amosun, saying he will complete them.

Abiodun said this on Sunday during a post-inauguration thanksgiving service held at the Cathedral of the St. Peters Church, Ake, Abeokuta, the state capital.

The governor had said before he was sworn in that he would complete only projects that had direct benefits to the people. But at the service, Abiodun explained that he decided not to abandon any of the ongoing projects which his predecessor  could not complete, due to the fact  that  taxpayers’ money had been spent on them.

He, however, said the cost of the projects could be reviewed.

Abiodun, who said he would run an all-inclusive government, assured the people that his administration would prioritise the reconstruction and repairs of rural, township and industrial roads.

The governor said he would also revamp the education sector after the proposed education summit that would hold soon.
