Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has said that he would now focus on governance after his political godson, Adekunle Akinlade lost the bid to take over from him.
Amosun spoke with journalists shortly after inspecting a project in the state on Wednesday, adding that the outcome of the election would not make him relent in delivering the dividend of democracy to the people of the state.
Amosun said, “I’ve been in politics since 2000; so, when things like this happen, you have to just move on because the job is there to be done.
“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.”
Amosun further explained that his government was committed to completing all pending projects.
He was specific about developing the state’s infrastructure, stressing that his government would complete all pending bridges except for one which he said they were struggling with.
Akinlade was defeated by the All Progressives Congress, APC candidate, Dapo Abiodun, in the March 9 poll.
