The governor, who stated this while campaigning across Akinyele local council area, maintained that ongoing projects such as the Inland Dry Port, the African Development Bank’s Agro Processing Zone, the Oyo State government-initiated Ilutuntun City as well as the multifarious infrastructure projects put in place by his administration, will make Akinyele the richest local government in the state within the next five to 10 years.

Makinde declared that the next five years will bring about a huge transformation in the fortunes of Akinyele local government area in the state. He said his claim would come to pass because of the various landmark projects and infrastructure being put up in the area.
