Senator Buruji Kasamu the governorship candidate of The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State has commended Senator Ibikunle Amosun, the governor of Ogun State for his effort in rebuilding Ogun State through the establishment of infrastructure and building permanent rather than stomach infrastructure which he will also do.
Senator Buruji gave the reassurance when he and his campaign train paid a courtesy call to the Alake and Paramount ruler of Egbaland at Ake Palace.
The PDP gubernatorial candidate who is also representing the Ogun East Senatorial District at the upper chamber in Abuja said that he would follow the footstep of Senator IbikunleAmosun by ensuring that people are empowered to work hard and earn money rather than giving them free money to buy food.
He also said one of the qualities he admire in Amosun was the fact that he didn’t only develop Abeokuta but rather other part of Ogun State were equally developed including Ijebu Igbo his home town base which was a beneficiary of a functional flyover and other social amenities.
He further stated that being a businessman, his administration if elected the governor of the state would compel entrepreneurship in all system of education i.e from primary to tertiary level.
He argued that only entrepreneurs should be governors and political leaders.
Senator Buruji however assured the Egbas that he would sustain and improve ten times better what Amosun has been able to do in the State capital, Abeokuta.
He believed that Egba should collectively support him and Abati so they would continue to benefit for a long time to come.
He disclosed that it was deliberate plan that an erudite and committed Egba son Dr. Reuben Abati had been chosen as his running mate, adding that Abati would always be a veritable link and trusted partner in this administration if he won the election as governor of Ogun State.
In his response, the Alake noted that Buruji had promised to serve Ogun State selflessly because he was already a fulfilled man.
He advised him and his running mate Dr. Reuben Abati to keep to their promise to the electorate if they were elected to run the affairs of Ogun State.
The Egba Paramount Monarch prayed for Senator Buruji Kasamu that all Mighty God shall answer his prayers and those of Ogun State for the best governance that would lead them to life more abundance. Many Egba chiefs were present at the occasion.
