FORMER Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has been identified as one of the best Governors the South West of Nigeria has ever produced.
Amosun, who is representing Ogun Central Senatorial District in the 9th Assembly, was singled out for unprecedented development of infrastructure and growth of Internally Generated Revenue in Ogun State during his tenure as Governor.
