The governor of Ogun state, Ibikunle Amosun, has claimed that he took over a failed state from his predecessor, Gbenga Daniel, in 2011.
Backstory: Amosun, who was represented by Taiwo Adeoluwa, Secretary to the State Government, was speaking at a press conference during the launch of the Ogun State Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency.
According to Amosun, governor-elect, Dapo Abiodun, will inherit an economically viable state.
He said: “When we came in 2011, Ogun State appeared to have failed as a State. Investors were running away from the State because of the high level of insecurity in the state but today, the state is ranked 4th on the list of states with the ease of doing business.”
Amosun claims that his government has taken the state from an internally generated revenue of “N700million to N7billion per month.”
