Tajhdeen Olalekan Ishola, has commended the Ogun State Government for measures taken in containing the spread of Coronavirus Pandemic, including the recent ban of gathering of more than fifty (50) people.

Reacting to the ban, Hon. Ishola expressed confidence in the leadership of Governor Dapo Abiodun, noting that the APC led administration has all the resources to protect the people of the state.

This, Gov Abiodun's leadership has shown and we are pleased with it. 

"On our part, the One Million Naira will provide succour for the people of Abeokuta North and assist them access basic necessities of life in the meantime".
