“Ahead of tomorrow’s national elections, VP Osinbajo arrives Ikenne this afternoon, holding series of meetings with APC and community leaders at his residence.
“He will be voting tomorrow at Polling Unit 14, Egunrege in Ikenne LGA,” Akande said.
The Vice President has visited Ogun state twice in the last two weeks to commission projects and to witness the maiden test flight of Gateway Agro-Cargo Airport.
Speaking at the test flight, Prof. Osinbajo said that the construction and development of critical infrastructure that will transform the economy and create more job opportunities for citizens is one way to build a modern and prosperous future for all Nigerians.
Prof. Osinbajo stated this today in his remarks at the maiden test flight into the recently constructed Gateway Agro Cargo International Airport in Iperu, Ikenne Local Government Area of Ogun State.
“This is how we build a modern, prosperous future for all Nigerians. I have no doubt that the culture of innovation and progress that the Gateway Agro Cargo International Airport has already brought will continue to motivate the people of Ogun State even more,” the VP said at the momentous occasion.
According to the Vice President, Ogun State “is now poised to provide facilities for a world-class economic zone,” because beyond being a fulfilment of a vision, the airport project “is one of the infrastructures for building a dynamic economic area.”
He emphasized the significance of the Agro Cargo Airport and Kajola Dry Port projects in the operationalization of the Special Agriculture Processing Zones, and Nigeria’s participation in the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA).
