We have so much to learn from Ogun State. I have seen so many good things and I want to congratulate him. I have seen the dualization of the Sagamu to Abeokuta road. The last time I was here, it was just a single lane. So, we zoomed here in a few minutes, that is what a private thinking person will do in other to attract more investment,” he added.
