The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has declared that the current economic hardship in the country was seriously affecting the states.
Amosun made the declaration while addressing State House Correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said, “I know things are tough and I am saying this with all sense of responsibility. All the states in Nigeria are affected. We are part of the larger context called Nigeria and because of that challenge, people must think out of the box and I am happy to report that in Nigeria today, maybe not in the quantum of what we generate, but we are number one.
“If you check the indices that have been released, we doubled our revenue with about 97.8 per cent, the next state to us I think was 41 per cent. We are working hard and we are doing well but there is still lot more to be done.”
