The teeming APC faithfuls are saying these good works should continue beyond May 2023 and the generality of the good people of Ogun State are ready to ratify this during next year general elections.

“The sweet victory also coincides with your 62nd birthday and third year in office anniversary. My prayers for you now and always is that the almighty God will further strengthen you to take Ogun State to greater heights”.
