Billionaire business mogul, Femi Otedola, has eulogized Ogun State Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun on his decisive approach towards aggressive industrialization of the state through the ongoing construction of Agro Cargo International Airport.
Otedola gave the commendation via his verified social media handle, lauding Abiodun’s giant strides in various masses-oriented projects geared towards sustainable growth in the state.
He, therefore, pledged his unalloyed support for the governor and the state through partnership to accelerate even development for the ultimate benefit of Ogun citizenry and Nigerians as a whole.
Otedola wrote: “I had a great time with my friend, Prince Dapo Abiodun, CON. I commended him for his strides in Ogun State, particularly on the ongoing construction of the Agro Cargo International Airport and other people-oriented projects being undertaken by his administration.
“I used the medium to assure him of my continuous support and partnership for the benefit of the good people of Ogun State and Nigeria at large.”
It would be recalled that a similar commendation was made by a senior official of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) Brigadier General Sylvester Oloyede, when he led a delegation of the Senior Executive Course 45, 2023, who were on a study tour to the state.
Oloyede, who spoke on the theme of the tour, “Industrialisation, Climate Change and Energy Security in Nigeria: Issues, Challenges & Prospects”, commended the state governor for embarking on massive industrial revolution through the construction of the Agro Cargo International Airport.
He opined that the Cargo Airport would strengthen economic growth in the state, especially in the area of quick and adequate supply of raw materials to the manufacturing sector.
Oloyede lauded the strategic location of the airport, with its proximity to the Western parts of Nigeria, Lagos -Ibadan expressway, on the southern side and Sagamu-Benin expressway.
In his remarks, Secretary to the State Government, Tokunbo Talabi, said the initiative was targeted towards aggressive industrialization in the state, which is strictly guided by an inherent developmental philosophy of the ISEYA mantra, as entrenched in the state’s distinct agenda, which is Building Our Future Together.
“Whichever way you want to approach the airport, the access to Lagos, the fifth largest economy in Africa and Nigeria’s largest economy, is very easy,” Talabi stated.
