Mega city costing N200bn to be built in Ogun?

27 September 2014, 10:06

Abuja - Gov. Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun on Friday said the state government had concluded plans to construct a mega city that would gulp over N200 billion in the state.

Amosun made this known in Ewekoro area of Ewekoro Local Government in continuation of his local government assessment tour.

The governor said that the mega city would cut across Obafemi Owode, Ifo and Ewekoro Local Government Areas.

He said his ambition was to develop the state and exploit all the resources the state was blessed with for the benefit of the people.

The governor disclosed that when completed, the mega city would be the best in Nigeria and in Africa.

He added that the Presidency had approved the construction of the abandoned airport at Alamala area of the state.

Amosun said it had been his agenda to complete the airport since his first day in office, saying it was not a crime for Lagos State to have an airport and Ogun having its own.

He said that work on perimetre fencing was ongoing at the proposed site of the airport, adding that serious work would start very soon.

The governor said that the airport would be of international standard, bigger and better than the proposed cargo airport and Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos.

Amosun promised the people that he would construct Owo to Pere road and Itori township road in the local government.

The governor, who promised that Ewekoro council would experience more industrial presence, assured the area of more roads.

He, however, advised the people to be law abiding and avoid being used by politicians to perpetrate evil.
