The leadership and entire members of Fuji Musicians of Nigeria (FUMAN), Ogun State heartily celebrate with the Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun as the state clocks 45.
This was made known to our Reporter in an exclusive interview by the Governor of the association, Mr. Ganiu Omolaja in Abeokuta.
The Governor of FUMAN opined, “The way Prince Abiodun is working now, it is no doubt that under him, the state will become the envy of other states in the Nigerian nation. Our beloved state had recorded first in some area of development in the past, we, at FUMAN believe, during the tenure of our incumbent Governor, with the steps he is taken, another first will be scored”.
Omolaja said they were happy to identify with Prince Abiodun on the occasion not just because he is the incumbent governor of the state but also for his dedication and determination to take the state to a higher level of development.
Omolaja believed the state is lucky to have the like of Prince Abiodun as it attains 45, because he has shown a high degree of commitment to its growth with his administration’s efforts in road construction and reactivation; building of housing estates in the 3 senatorial divisions of the state; investment in Agriculture for which, he has won many awards; concern for workers; provision and consideration for women and the youths.
The Fuji musicians’ governor promised that they were ready to contribute their own quota to the efforts of Abiodun by ensuring that they constantly dished out melodiously composed Fuji sounds to soothe the nerves of the Governor and those of his lieutenants while they carried out the responsibility of administering the state.
Omolaja disclosed that they were already considering the possibility of packaging and launch a special album to ecstatically mark the 45th birthday of the state, which according to him, will chronicle the plethora of achievements so far recorded by the Prince Abiodun.
FUMAN is the umbrella body of all Fuji musicians in the nooks and crannies of Ogun State, and we make valuable contributions to the development of our communities and indeed the country.
