Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun has said he has resolved to focus on governance after Adekunle Akinlade, his endorsed candidate was defeated in the state governorship election.
Speaking with reporters shortly after inspecting a project in the state, Amosun said that the outcome of the election would not make him relent in delivering the dividend of democracy to the people of the state.
Amosun who noted that he has been in politics since the year 2000 said when things like this happen, one has to just move on because there are other things to do.
“Eyes on the ball, you don’t lose focus; no distraction. I told people that whatever the outcome, by Monday I’m back. I’m doing my work.
“Indeed, we are going to be working flat-out; day and night because those projects must be finished, even some of our roads will be finished.”
He also reaffirmed his commitment to completion of all pending projects before the end of his tenure, after which he would head to the Senate.
Being specific, Amosun stressed that his government would complete all pending bridges except for one which he said they were struggling with.
Amosun will be a member of the 9th National Assembly after winning the Ogun state central senatorial district election under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeating the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate and other contestants in the February 23 election to win the seat.
