May 01, (THEWILL) – The Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) and the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi , has declared that Governor Dapo Abiodun deserved to be elected for a second term in office.
Fayemi, who stated this in Abeokuta, the state capital, during a visit to the governor said that as the chairman of NGF, people shouldn’t be surprised that he was promoting Abiodun to come and rule the state for the second time
He said that for President Muhammadu Buhari to have come to the state to inaugurate some laudable projects, he was certain that the people of the state would support him for his second term in office .
The Ekiti State Governor, who commended his Ogun State counterpart for both local and foreign investment drive for the state, said the recent hundred of millions of dollars investment into the Olokola Free Trade Zone and the agro cargo airport couldn’t have been possible without the confidence of investors in the leadership of the state.
“He (Abiodun) has demonstrated capacity, he has increased investment, naturally, this is a state that attracts more investment than the rest of us, those of us in the hinterland, because it is close to Lagos. But, on top of that, he has brought to bare his business acumen, his extensive knowledge of the investment terrain to attract a lot more investment,” Fayemi noted.
