Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has assured the people of Ode-Remo and its environs that the State General Hospital, Isara, would be rehabilitated and provided with modern medical equipment to meet their health needs.
Governor Abiodun, who gave the assurance at the commissioning of the ultra-modern palace of Alaye Ode-Remo, Museum and a recreational Park at Ode-Remo, Remo North Local Government Area of the State, also assured that his administration would not short-change any part of the State.
He appreciated traditional rulers for ensuring peace at their various domains, saying, they have ensured that good governance not only prevail in the Local Governments, but also in the State.
“I appreciate traditional rulers’ roles in governance at the state and local levels. They have a lot to play in community policing, as they are the closest to the people”, he said.
Describing the new palace as a master piece, Prince Abiodun said the museum would act as the repository of artefacts for generations yet unborn, to know the customs of the town and the recreational centre.
The Governor who lauded the donor, Chief Adetola Emmanuel King for his sense of Corporate Social Responsibility, said his gesture was in line with his administration’s Public Private Partnership policy, calling on all sons and daughters of Ode Remo to emulate him by embarking on projects that would bring development and enhance the well-being of the people.
Speaking, the Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, said the occasion was a trail moment for the people, appreciating those who made the projects a reality.
In his speech, the Alaye of Ode- Remo, Oba Adetunji Osho, recalled that in the history of the town, since its establishment in 1450, 20 Obas have reigned without a befitting palace and this had led to loss
of valuable artefacts.
