We Have Unutilised Mineral Resources In Ogun Waterside — Gbenga Daniel

A former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel has revealed that the state is blessed with natural resources that were yet to be utilised.

Daniel said the lack of utilisation of the mineral resources found in the Ogun Waterside Local Government Area of the state by both the federal and state governments has led to neglect of the area.

He explained that there is an urgent need for government at all levels to harness the vast natural resources lying fallow in Ogun Waterside.

He also added that the local government has enough economic potential when utilised.

Daniel was speaking on Friday at Abigi, the headquarters of Ogun Waterside local government, during a ward-to-ward campaign tour.

He is the senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Ogun East Senatorial District.

Addressing his supporters, the APC candidate recalled the various efforts he made during his reign as Ogun governor.

The projects included the initiation of projects of immense economic value to the state in particular and the nation at large.

Daniel listed the Olokola Free Trade Zone project which includes OK LNG, the Deep Sea Port, and the Gateway Industrial Petro-Gas Institute (GIPI).

“When we initiated these projects, it was because we knew that this local government has the deepest seaport in Nigeria that could accommodate very large ocean liners without needing dredging.

“There is also a vast deposit of bitumen on our border with Ondo State.

"Without doubt, the economic future of Ogun State, and even Nigeria, lies in this great local government and our job in Abuja will be to drag the Federal Government to revisit and accelerate the projects,” he added.
