Residency in Ogun State
Ogun state have been very unfortunate in the choice of governors in the area of choosing somebody who is resident in Ogun state prior to the Election into the office of Governor this the trend started with the first of others military administrator with Oladayo Popoola.
(Rtd) Raji Rasaki (Rtd) Kayode Olofinmoyin (Rtd) Sam Ewang (Rtd).
They are all none indigenes appointed by the military head of state, even though they contributed their quotas to the development of our dear state, they are all none indigenes. For the indigenes General Oladipupo Diya, Chief Olusegun Osoba, Chief Olabisi Onabanjo, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, Alhaji Ibikunle Amosun, and the incumbent Dr. Dapo Abiodun even though they are indigene but they all had their work, carrier and businesses outside of ogun state before assuming office.
The effect of this is that

2. It will discourage investment in our dear state resident who attempted Governorship in Ogun state almost lost their business in the processes.
3. The People elected will appoint majority of their cabinet from disapproval, they will be comfortable to worship with the people they are familiar with. This is a great disservice to-over faithfully people enduring the upcoming economy of our dear state.
