Why Airport Is A Necessity For Ogun – Amosun

Ibikunle-Amosun-Ogun-BudgetGovernor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has said his administration would build an airport in Ogun to fast-track the socio-economic development of the state.
An airport project in the state is not a “luxury but a necessity”, Amosun said.
According to the governor, the volume of industries, calibre of materials and persons moving in and out of the state would make an airport a viable project.
Amosun made this known during a press briefing ahead of the 2016 edition of the Ogun State Investors’ Forum.
He, however, did not disclose where the airport would be sited.
The forum, which has a theme “Ogun Open for Business: Emerging Economic Power House of Nigeria”, would pay special attention to environment, agriculture and transportation as areas to be harnessed for growth and development of the state.
The governor noted that Ogun State has taken a pre-eminent position as the industrial hub of Nigeria, and revealed that the forum organised in the past by his government had attracted over 100 investments valued between $100 and $200million.
Amosun also reiterated the determination of his administration to build light rail transport, saying it would be constructed to link Isheri to Sagamu and Sagamu to Abeokuta to ease movement of goods and persons.
