CCDI President commends Dapo Abiodun’s deliberate efforts in curbing insecurity in Ogun state

Center For Convention on Democratic integrity, (CCDI) President, Mr. Olufemi Aduwo has applauded the Ogun state Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for his government’s deliberate policy towards ensuring the safety of lives and properties in the state.

The Civil Society icon added that despite isolated cases of kidnappings within the borders of the state, it has been relatively safe in the last three and half years under Gov. Abiodun.

He recalled when the state was synonymous with violence and insecurity, a situation where some notable politicians from the state could not visit for fear of being attacked, and financial institutions closed businesses while other organizations simply relocated to neighboring states”, he said.

Aduwo, who is also the permanent representative of CCDI to the United Nations, made the preliminary press statement on Monday after five days of CCDI development assessment and opinion poll conducted in Ogun East Senatorial District, with a special focus on the riverine areas of Ijebu East and Ogun Waterside Local council areas which spreads across Makun-Omi, Iwopin, Ajibandele, Agbure, Ibiade, Abigi, Oni, Ogbere, among others.

Underscoring the achievements of the Governor, he stated that democracy is synonymous with development, noting that, without peace and security, no reasonable, sustainable development could be achieved.

The statement reads in part: “One of the biggest achievements of Governor Dapo Abiodun is his government’s protection of the security of lives and properties. From available and verifiable information, which the office of DSS and IGP could confirm, the governor remains one of very few without armed thugs in the country”, Aduwo said.

CDDI boss said the majority of people they interacted with attested to the governor’s even distribution of development projects which promote peace and security in the state.

“From the rebuilding of the Abeokuta -Sagamu interchange road to the Epe-Ijebu Ode Expressway, which l and my team drove along a few days ago down to Waterside area of the state to rural areas of the state at lwopin waterside where a decent health care center is built, and the abandoned wharf is being refurbished, it was a great feat for the governor.

“Last night we drove along Lukogbe llushin road constructed by the governor. The possibility of the governor being re-elected in 2023 is on the positive side. The governor has practically left no one in doubt of his commitment to revamping the state infrastructure in the Gateway State.

This, perhaps, is evident in the zeal and sense of purpose with which several abandoned capital projects have been pursued and new constructions were undertaken by his administration”, Aduwo said.
