The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, on Monday likened his remaining two months in office to the last lap of a long-distance race saying the months were a period for him to draw more strength from within and gather more speed towards obtaining the medal.
The governor said this while speaking with newsmen shortly after inspecting some semi-urban roads under construction in the Ogun-East Senatorial District where he described himself as a national athlete, representing the country in long-distance races such as 500 metres, 5,000 metres and 18,000 metres.
Amosun assumed office in 2011 and was re-elected in 2015 and his tenure would end on May 29.
“All the drainages are ready; we are now ready for asphalting.
“All our landmark projects, such as the 250-bed ultramodern hospital, the Judicial Complex, the Ogun State Television Complex, Ogere International Market, Ogun State Polytechnic, Ipokia and the Adire/Kampala Modern Market would be completed and inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari,” Amosun said during the inspection tour.
