Honour and accolades came the way of the chairman, Ogun State chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Alhaji Tajudeen Bello, recently in London, United Kingdom as members of the party gathered to celebrate him.

At a brief but memorable reception cum award night organized by Ogun ACN members in the UK, Bello was applauded for his efforts and success in delivering Ogun State to the ACN in the last general election.

He stated that the challenges facing the government are enormous but that the leadership of the party in the state is determined to make the difference and take the state to its Promised Land. Bello assured his hosts that soon 'the people of the state will begin to enjoy dividends of democracy.' He called on the UK chapter of the party to come together and form structures that will enable the party to function effectively while also appealing to them to join Amosun in his strides to industrialize the state by coming home to invest.
