As Ogun Drum festival holds April 25-27, Amosun promises to work till May 28 Midnight

The Governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun on Tuesday, April 16, pledged that projects will be inaugurated by his government till 12 midnight of May 28, 2019.
The governor stated this at the world press conference to herald the 2019 edition of the African Drum Festival which held at the MITROS Hall and Residences, Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.
He debunked the insinuation that his administration would halt developmental projects before his handover date.
He reiterated that he would complete all the projects his administration started.
“My administration will work to deliver projects to our people till the last moment I hand over to the next governor. I will work every hour, every minute and every second till 12 midnight on May 28.
“The last two weeks of our administration will be about the delivery of dividends of democracy to the people. In fact, we will continue to lay asphalt on roads till the last minute of my government. This is because I have vowed to uphold the oath I swore to, that I would work to deliver on my electioneering promises to the people of Ogun State.”
Amosun added that the fourth edition of the 2019 festival, with the theme “Drumming for the Future”, will be bigger and better, in terms of participation, cultural education and expose.
The festival was conceptualised singularly four years ago by the Ogun State Ministry of Culture and Tourism and had since become a state affair.
The Festival will be held at the newly completed 10,000-seater capacity Amphitheater at the Central Business District, Abeokuta. “The festival has been expanded to accommodate more activities, Amosun, disclosed that at least 28 state troupes, 27 countries and 71 Independent troupes have signified their readiness to participate in the festival billed to hold between April 25 and 27. “The event will be used to inaugurate Ransom Kuti Legacy Museum, in honour of late Afrobeat King, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, unveil Adire Logo at Itoku Adire Market, organise art and cultural train ride to be led by Prof. Wole Soyinka, from Iju train station in Lagos to Laderin in Abeokuta, while there will be a special performance by Seun Kuti.”
