The governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has emerged the Political Brand Personality of the Year, awarded by Marketing Edge Publication Limited.

Receiving the award at the 2022 Marketing Edge Summit themed: ‘Technological Explosion in the Digital Age: Imperatives for the Marketing Communications Industry,’ held at the Harbour Point Hall, Victoria Island, Lagos, Governor Abiodun called on marketing professionals to partner with his government in order to successfully achieve his administration’s policy.

Represented by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Waheed Odusile, Prince Abiodun said that his administration had opened doors for partnership, as no government could do it all alone.

He said, “For us in Ogun State, we recognise excellence and we believe in building our future together. We have enjoyed partnerships from different agencies, which have added to our success story today.

“When we came on board in 2019, the rate of insecurity was high, but today, Ogun is adjudged as one of the safest states as a result of the security network put in place. We have also constructed over 400 kilometres of roads across the state, which is the first of its kind in the history of the state.

“Our administration has not given priority to any particular senatorial district at the expense of others, in terms of development. Today, every local government has felt government presence in the last three years; and we would not renege in our efforts to deliver on our campaign promises to the people of the Ogun.”

Thanking the organisers for the award, the governor said that the recognition would be a source of inspiration for his administration to do more.

Earlier in his remarks, the publisher, Marketing Edge Publication Limited, John Ajayi, commended the Governor Abiodun-led administration for the infrastructural development in the state, as well as ensuring that Ogun is now the safest in the country in terms of security of lives and property.

He noted that the award was as a result of the numerous achievements of the incumbent administration in Ogun, specifically on road construction, especially that of Journalists’ Estate in Arepo.
