When Governor Ibikunle Amosun promised to unveil 50 projects to mark the third anniversary of its second year in office in May, many residents were not only happy but expectant.
For a government that had spent so much on road infrastructure, people were eager to know where the other 50 projects were sited.
The Secretary to the State Government, Barr. Taiwo Adeoluwa said the commissioning was put off as a result of Ramadan that was ongoing then.
A statement he released then read, “in keeping with our well known ‘Ogun Standard’, the state government plans to commemorate this year’s anniversary with the commissioning of some of the over 50 new projects, spread across the three geo-political zones.
“However, in deference to our Islamic faithful, who are currently observing Ramadan fast across the country, the Governor, Senator
Ibikunle Amosun has directed that the commissioning of projects earlier scheduled to take place on Tuesday, 29th May, 2018
(Democracy Day), be postponed till the last week in June, when the Ramadan fast would have been over.”
According to Adeoluwa, the celebration of the previous year was marked with an inspection tour of projects across the state, which was rounded off with the commissioning of the MITROS Residences, at the GRA, Ibara, Abeokuta.
But since then, the government has kept a sealed lip on these projects.
They have neither informed the public of the new date of commissioning nor disclosed the locations of the said projects.
Residents of the state are, however, watching as events unfold to know whether or not such projects exist or would ever be commissioned.
