Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has approved constituency projects for the 236 councillors in the state.
Prince Abiodun made this known at the Governor’s Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, when he received the councillors who were on ground to pass a vote of confidence on his administration.
The Governor said the approval was in fulfilment of his promise to ensure the councillors execute projects in their various constituencies as they are the closest to the people at the grassroots.
Governor Abiodun, who recently approved the full payment of furniture allowance to the 236 councillors, also promised to ensure the continuous empowerment of the councillors.
Governor Abiodun also appreciated the judiciary for upholding the rule of law and called on opposition members to join his administration in moving the state to the next level.
Governor Abiodun, who noted that Ogun State was currently the fastest growing economy in the country, promised that his administration would spend the next three and half years building on the solid foundation laid in the first term.
Earlier, the Chairman, Ogun State Forum of Councillors, Mr Olarenwaju Adeleye thanked the governor for approving and paying their full furniture allowance.
Mr Adeleye also acknowledged Governor Abiodun for executing at least a project in each of the 236 wards of the state and commended him for not abandoning projects left unfinished by the immediate past administrations in the state.
