Our Word, Our Bond

"52 Weeks of Building Our Future Together" is a documentation, or perhaps a compendium, of what we have been able to achieve within the first year of our Administration. Though it is not yet Uhuru, we are proud of the legacy projects that we can showcase as pointers to our determination to make Ogun State a better, mutually prosperous place for investors, foreigners, Nigerians and autochthonous citizens of the State.


We consider this mandate a divine trust, hence our constant ascription to the goodness of God, everything that we have done in this Administration. The events leading to my emergence as the standard-bearer of the All Progressives Party (APC), victory at the polls and ultimate victory at the courts are a testament to the many battles we had to fight, and indicative of this divine odyssey. We hold it a sacred duty to keep our part of the tripartite agreement - God, the people and us - sacrosanct.


Looking back one year as the captain of this ship, I can see the hands of God in all our collaborations, inclusiveness, peoplecentredness and collectivism. These characteristics are reflected in every appointment, project and decision we have made. Because the people are the other edge of this tripartite covenant, all policies are strategic and our programmes are deliberately pro-masses to achieve measurable results.


To underscore the fact that Ogun State was headed for a leadership paradigm shift, even during electioneering, we promised: "To give Ogun State focused and qualitative governance and to create the enabling environment for a public-private sector partnership, which is fundamental to the creation of enduring economic development and individual prosperity of the people of Ogun". The establishment of the Economic Transition Committee of eminent Ogun professionals, technocrats, political players (including those against whom I contested), as well as other stakeholders and the Work Group set up to develop a Blueprint and an Implementation Roadmap were all geared towards ensuring that our Government hit the ground running from the very day we were inaugurated.


As you will see on these pages, we have documented - preand post-inauguration, activities done in consonance with our strategic "enablers" - good governance, security, information and communication technology (ICT), infrastructure and welfare, as well as tangible outcomes from our identified strategic pillars such as agriculture, education, health, environment and infrastructure. At the heart of these enablers and pillars is etched an investment drive which is absolutely reasonable, considering Ogun's strategic location, proximity to Lagos, abundance of human and natural resources and a political leadership dedicated to collective wellbeing and shared prosperity through a Public-Private Sector Partnership.


Beyond physical, psychological and formal security initiatives, Ogun State under our watch is powered by the dictum and initiatives encapsulated under the acronym I-S-E-Y-A:


I -Infrastructure

S - Social Welfare and Wellbeing

E - Education

Y - Youth Development

A - Agriculture and Food Security
