I'm At Peace With My Creator - Amosun

ABEOKUTA - The outgoing governor of Ogun state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has expressed satisfaction with his performance as a governor for eight years. 

The governor equally boasted that, his achievements surpassed that of his predecessors, Otunba Gbenga Daniel and Chief Olusegun Osoba, saying the duo could not march his administration’s achievements.

Amosun spoke with newsmen on Monday shortly after he had commissioned a 600 flat MTR Gardens at Isheri along Lagos – Ibadan expressway on Monday.

Amosun boasted that if Daniel and Osoba jointly point to a project they have executed, “I will show them 10.” 

It would be recalled that, former governor Daniel had slammed Amosun over what he termed “pathological and needless lies” regarding his administration which Amosun had claimed bequeathed bad economy, deplorable infrastructure and insecurity on the state in 2011.   

Amosun said he had no regret becoming “Abeokuta Governor”, a sobriquet he had earned following alleged concentration of infrastructural projects of his government in the state capital, where he hails from.   

Amosun said ” I am not the first governor in the state. Particularly, let’s talk about the last two. Let’s leave all the Military Administrators. Take Chief Osoba, take Daniel, put them together and let them point (to their projects). Once they say this is our project, I will show them 10. Even the axis of Ijebu and Yewa, I will show them.“   

“So, when people sit down in one corner and talk, I have told them that I should not be punished for the ‘sin’ that is committed to make Abeokuta the capital of Ogun State. Abeokuta is for all of us. It is not as if what they are saying is correct. They say I am only the governor for Abeokuta. I am happy to be governor of Abeokuta. And If I would come again and again, I would want to be classified like that (Governor of Abeokuta). Ask them – People have come before me, people that say they have been governors of this state. Let them come and point to what they have done that is better than what we have done.   

"That's what  I am saying. I am not the first governor particularly let's talk about the last two. Let's leave all the Military Administrators. Take Chief Osoba, take Daniel, put them together and let them point (to their projects). Once they say this is our project, I will show them 10. Even the axis of Ijebu and Yewa, I will show them.     

"Posterity will judge all of us. So, I am happy. I am at peace with myself and with my creator. I am not the first governor. They too governed. If they say I am governor of Abeokuta, which governor of where are they? Are they governor of Sagamu? Or governor of Ogun East, let them bring what they did in that place?

"Look at the road to Sagamu, that's what they did before we came; it has become impassable; that is one kilometer and we did what is about nine kilometer. Go to Ijebu - Ode, the best road in the whole of Ogun East, it's done by us. So, if they are in competition with Abeokuta, it's not my problem. I did not make Abeokuta the capital, our forebears did, 43 years ago. So, whoever is the governor and knows what he is doing the capital is for all of us. And it is not that I abandoned the rest, I did not."
