Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has assured that his
administration will do everything within its capacity to ensure that
the oil-rich Tongeji Island in Ipokia Local Government will not go the
way of Bakassi Peninsula which was ceded to Cameroun.
Amosun said his administration will continue to ensure government
presence on the Island by providing top notch public infrastructure in
the border town.
The Governor disclosed this yesterday when he hosted a delegation from
the National Boundary Commission on a courtesy visit at his Oke Mosan
office in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
While assuring of his commitment on the border town, Governor Amosun
said his administration will continue to provide good schools,
hospitals and other social amenities in the area.
He said, “We don’t want to cede any of our territory to any other
country. We will do all that is necessary to ensure that Tongeji
Island does not go the way of Bakassi Island.”
The Governor also expressed his appreciation to President Muhammadu
Buhari for directing that the Army, Navy, Police and other security
agencies immediately establish and maintain presence on the Island.
