Fifty four traditional rulers under the auspice of Egba Traditional Council have unanimously expressed their endorsement of the Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, for second term in office.

Announcing the endorsement on Wednesday, the president of the Council, the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, hinged their support for the governor’s re-election bid on his sterling performance since he assumed office in 2019.

Alake said Abiodun had done creditably well and deserved a second term to finish what he has started.

Oba Gbadebo noted that in the last sixteen years, governors in the state have serving two terms in office, stressing that “Governor Abiodun, “having done so well also deserves a second term”.

“The governor has done very very well. In the last 16 years, two governors have done second terms, why is our governor who has done so well will not do a second term?” Alake stated.

While appreciating the governor for completing some abandoned projects in Egbaland and helping to complete the Traditional Council’s Hall in the Alake’s Palace, he called on the state government to construct the road leading to the railway station in Abeokuta.
