It’s The Season Of Political War In Nigeria As Amosun Also Replies Daniel

7 years ago

You have read the President’s reply to Governor Ameachi this afternoon, Governor Amosun has also taken time out to reply Gbenga Daniel who accused his administration of a lot of misdeeds. Here goes;

After former Ogun State Governor, Gbenga Daniel last week Tuesday accused Governor Ibikunle Amosun of inflicting pains on the people of Ogun State with his double taxation and incurring about N200 billion debt in less than four years of his administration, Governor Amosun have asked the good people of Ogun State to ignore him, as Gbenga Daniel and his cohorts are confused and pathetic liars.

Daniel also claimed the total debt he left behind after his 8-year reign was just a meagre N37 billion.


Gov, Amosun however replied him while speaking with journalists after the commissioning of the First Gate Estate in the state, Orange Valley Estate constructed by Ogun State Property Investment Corporation, OPIC, saying ;

“I dont have time for them now, they are confused people. They marvel at our achievements in less than four years. When we started demolition, they said we are demolishing people’s house and nothing will be done afterwards but we started the road expansion and they were surprised with everything. When we started the model schools, they said it is a lie, the schools are now ready, they are shell-shocked.

“When we started this estate, they said we can’t do it, today we have just commissioned 66 units and others are ongoing. We are having similar estates across the state. We are building another at New Makun in Sagamu, another in Agbara along Kobape road here and also at Alamala area. By the time all these are completed, the issue of housing would have been solved because we are building it for all categories.

“All of us are entitled to good houses and this government is not sleeping over that, we will continue to ensure that the dream of the founders of OPIC to see that affordable houses are available to everyone is met, be you indigene or non-indigene.

“All these are giving our critics sleepless night, they never thought of seeing this state at this level. They thought we are like them. Remember that if you are in front of someone that does not like you, even if he stands on the tallest building, he will still be saying that he did not see anything. Let”s just leave them and continue with our mission to rebuild the state,” he said.

About the accusation that the state already owes nothing less than N200 billion, in less than four years of his administration, Amosun said;

“I am an accountant and I know that no bank in this country can borrow any state up to that, so where did they get such figures from. We are using just two banks and we owe one about N13 to N15 billion, so if we owe the other like say, N10billion, where has that amounted to N200billion.

“And to let you know, we didn’t borrow a dime to construct this estate. It is all these that are confusing them. We will not listen to them, they are pathological liars and a confused people, it is the proceeds we made on the estates like this that was meant for the middle class people that we are going to recycle and use to build that of the low class people. It is going to go round and they will continue to marvel, they ain’t seen anything yet,” he said.
