Abiodun Seeks FG’s Support Over Tongeji Island
Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has called on the Federal Government to join hands with his adminstration towards giving the residents of oil-rich Tongeji Island a sense of belonging and make life more comfortable for them.
Governor Abiodun made the call in Abeokuta at the opening of a two-day interactive session of National Boundary Commission with the Boundary committee of the states in the South West Zone.
The governor who pointed out that his administration was aware of likely deposits of petroleum reserves on the island, said provision of basic infrastructure for the people of the island became imperative.
While urging all stakeholders to continue to adopt peaceful means of resolving boundary issues, he said Lagos and Ogun State governments had reached an advanced stage in the matter of establishing Lagos-Ogun Joint Development Commission.
Earlier, the Director General, National Boundary Commission Mr Adamu Adaji said the interactive session was organized to sensitize stakeholders on the activities of the boundary managers across the country.
Mr Adaji expressed optimism that at the end of the interactive session, all stakeholders would come up with better and more practical recommendations on boundary issues.
