Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun on Monday said that his State was the best among the 36 States in the country.

He made this assertion while addressing Journalists after visiting President Muhammdu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Narrating how Ogun State is number in Nigeria, Amosun said: “I am happy to report that in Nigeria today, Ogun is number one. Ogun state is the industrial hub of Nigeria, there is no state that has the kind of resources we have in terms of numbers and value.

He said; “If you check the indices that have been released, we doubled our revenue with about 97.8%. The next state to us I think was 41%. We are working hard and we are doing well but there is still lots more to be done.

“I am happy that we got several investors, particularly those that are not even from Nigeria and so many people that are in Nigeria, that operate here and that is why we showcased everybody.

“We are not limiting it at that, we want to take it forward. Not agriculture alone, we want to take full advantage of the full value chain that agriculture offers. We want to take full advantage of the value-chain that agriculture offers.

“And what do I mean by that? Whatever we grow we must process; whatever we processed, we must package; whatever we packaged, we must market; whatever we market, we must in the final analysis find transport it to final consumer.

“You know that everybody is working and that is what we are trying do.”
