Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun yesterday said his administration could not complete the ongoing international airport project at Wasimi, Ewekoro Local Government Area before its expiration on May 29, citing “time constraint”.
In January, Amosun had visited the site during his senatorial election campaign, promising that the airport’s runaway would be completed by May, this year.
Amosun who led the Executive Council members and permanent secretaries on inspection tour of some major projects in Abeokuta on Monday, foreclosed the completion of the airport project, saying, ‘’I will follow it up while in the Senate, though it is a Federal Government project.”
He said he had returned to work after the Saturday’s governorship election which his preferred candidate, Adekunle Akinlade of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), lost to Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressives Congress.
“Politics will not slow us down, as it is time to fully go back to work. The construction of the Ogun State Television (OGTV) Complex, Ogere International Market, the 250 bedded ultra-modern hospital, Abeokuta City Centre, new Makun City and other road projects would be completed and commissioned by President Muhammad Buhari in May this year,” he said.
