Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has advised Nigerians to vote with competent and capable hands in various offices instead of voting mediocre during next month’s general election.

Abiodun gave the advice on Thursday during the inauguration of the Esure-Imushin highway in the state’s East Ijebu Local Government Area.

He called on people to pick up their Permanent Voter Credentials before the January 29 deadline and make sure they elect competent leaders.

He specifically urged Nigerians to vote for the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, saying he is the most competent.

He also urged people in the area to vote for APC Ogun East senatorial candidate Otunba Gbenga Daniel, and for himself to return as governor, among others.

“Without their PVC they will not be able to vote and they must vote because I am sure they want the continuity of what we are doing here. I urge you to pick up your cards and vote for us.

“Governance is serious business. It is not for the mediocre, but for people with a recognized track record in public and private management,” said the governor.

Speaking at some of the rallies held in his support, Abiodun noted that his administration’s rural lighting project will start soon, with the distribution of electricity transformers and solar systems.

He assured that people in deep rural areas will soon experience a new life with the provision of electric power in their respective communities, adding that the construction of the 2.1-kilometre Esure Highway was in line with the promises he made in 2021 during the campaign . for the local government election.

He pointed out that the highway, in addition to uniting the first College of Health Technology in the state, would reduce the wear and tear of the vehicles that transit it.

“This path is yours. I want to warn you to appropriate this path. This road has been built through your community and taxes. Make sure it is not abused or diverted to machine shops,” Abiodun said.

In his welcome speech, Works and Infrastructure Commissioner Akin Adesanya said the highway was part of the administration’s inclusive policy to ensure all parts of the state benefit from development projects.

He said the highway, which was built to a standard, would reduce stress on motorists while boosting economic activities in the area.
