Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has announced the commencement of passenger operations at the Ogun agro-cargo airport in the first quarter of 2024.
During his New Year broadcast to Ogun residents, the governor guaranteed an unprecedented surge in infrastructure development throughout the state in the upcoming year.
Abiodun affirms that his administration will intensify endeavors to address the citizens’ requirements, vowing to do so with steadfast commitment and inclusivity.
“In 2023, we faced numerous challenges but together we were resolute, focused and we emerged united and stronger. I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to you, the good citizens and residents of the state,” he said.
“We have prioritized the provision of the required infrastructure, particularly in the transportation sector. We have constructed or rehabilitated over 500 kilometres of roads across the state, ensuring improved transportation and connectivity.
“Our commitment to equitable development is evident, as these works are spread across our 20 Local Government Areas in the state. We have also embarked on our multi-modal transport master plan, encompassing land, air, water, and rail modes of transportation.
“The Gateway Agro-Cargo airport project initiated a little over two years ago is set to commence passenger and cargo operations in the first quarter of 2024. This world-class airport and economic enabler will provide over 25,000 job opportunities.”
