Abiola Ajimobi, Oyo state governor, has urged Nigerians to keep supporting the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In his New Year message to Nigerians, the governor also appealed to Nigerians to repose their confidence in the present administration to deliver on its promises.
He observed that even though the country is going through rigorous times in 2017, the administration is capable of leading the nation to better days ahead.
The message signed by Yomi Layinka, his special adviser on communication and strategy, read: “Although the challenges we are currently facing appear daunting, it is my utmost belief that, with the commitment and sincerity being exhibited by the Buhari-led government, we shall overcome them.
“I want to appeal to our people to keep supporting President Buhari’s administration. Let us repose confidence in the president to take the economy through a remarkable turnaround.”
The governor said his administration is committed to delivering the dividends of democracy to the people of Ogun state.
The governor added: “On our part, I want to assure you that we will complete some of the ongoing projects across the state; particularly those already slated for completion by 2018. We will also embark on aggressive rural infrastructural development.
“We are resolute in consolidating on the gains of the past.
“I crave your understanding and cooperation as good citizens of the state, particularly on the poor state of the economy, which has taken its toll on virtually all the states of the federation.”
