Ogun will resuscitate the Olokola seaport project

The Ogun State Government has said efforts are on top gear to revitalize the Olokola Seaport and initiate other development projects, with a view to the development of the state, especially Ogun Waterside Local Government Area .

The Deputy Governor, Eng. Noimot Salako-Oyedele made this known during the 5th Coronation Anniversary of the Osobia of Makun-Omi Kingdom, HRM Oba Kazeem Salami, at Makun-Omi Motor Park, Ayegbami.

She said the Governor Dapo Abiodun-led administration remained committed to developing the area and tapping into the potential and natural resources of the local government.

“We are working with Afrexim and Arise to revive that project, among other projects we need to bring to Ogun Waterside over the next three years, as a way of delivering on our promises to the people of Ogun Waterside.

“We will develop and utilize the natural resources that the Ogun waterfront has, be it agriculture, oil, gas and the natural depth of the deep sea port,” she said.

While noting that the area was blessed with natural resources, the deputy governor assured the people that the state, as chairman of the Ogun State Boundary Committee, would not lose a single square meter of its land to neighboring states.
