The Ogun state governor , Dapo Abiodun, on Saturday, spat fire over the location of controversial Agro-Allied Cargo airport located at Ilishan-Remo, Ikenne Local Government Area ,saying, he remains the governor and “the buck stops at his table.”
Abiodun who was referring to his predecessor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun talked tough over the nature and location of airport project in the state.
While Abiodun made case for an Agro-Allied Cargo airport located at Ilishan-Remo, Ikenne Local Government Area, Amosun strongly backed a passenger airport located at Wasimi, Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state.
The governor who spoke on Saturday at Ikenne as part of the ongoing campaign of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the July 24 LG poll, said he remains committed to the project despite stiff resistance in some quarters.
Abiodun also led his campaign train to the site of the airport project, saying, he was in charge of the state .
Addressing party stalwarts and residents of Ikenne LG, Abiodun said he would not bow to the opposition.
Abiodun said “Aeroplane will be landing here in Ikenne. Some people are building airport, some ‘airstrip’ and some domestic airport; they are embittered, they are fighting us. They said we can’t site the airport here, and I said ‘it is a lie.’
“I am the governor of Ogun State as we speak. I am in possession of both the bread and the knife. And I will share it as it pleases me.
“We have sited the project here already and by the end of next year, we will commission that airport.”
