Lagos,Ogun And Oyo States Governors Elect Plan On A Joint Development Commission

Ogun State governor-elect, Dapo Abiodun, has revealed plans by himself and his colleagues in Oyo and Lagos to take the fortunes of the three states to the next level through the creation of a joint development commission.

He stated that the three states have a lot in common, adding that it was enough reason to ensure a cordial relationship that will promote economic development in the areas of security, physical planning, revenue generation among others.

Abiodun spoke with journalists at the Agodi Governor’s office, Ibadan after paying a courtesy call on the state governor, Abiola Ajimobi in his office.

He noted that the three state governments must work to ensure that the Lagos-Sagamu-Ibadan expressway, which he described as an important economic corridor in the country must be given the deserved attention.

The Ogun Governor-elect assured that the issues of development of the three neighbouring states will get their collective attention.

Abiodun said “I am in Oyo state on a courtesy call to my elder brother and senior colleague, Senator Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo state.

“You know that Ogun state and Oyo State have a lot of things in common. One, we enjoyed the proximity to Lagos and Oyo state has been the economic headquarters for the entire Southwest. What we intend to do going forward is that we are going to have a joint development commission between Ogun, Lagos and Oyo because we have contiguousness in common.

“We must ensure that our economic development is in sync whether in the areas of security, physical planning, revenue or people that probably lives in Ibadan and works in Ogun state and vice versa. We must ensure that we capture them in a tax net and we will ensure that in terms of physical infrastructure as well.

“The Lagos-Sagamu-Ibadan expressway is a road that joins all of us together, and that is probably the most important road in this country and the economy of Nigeria is intertwined on that road.

“So, those are issues that are very important to us. So, the Governor of Ogun, the Governor of Lagos and Governor of Oyo must sit down together and have a working relationship so that we can raise the economy of these states to the next level.”
