Ogun State Secretary to the Government and some top government officials (privately not officially) are already in town to be part of the convention, however, it is not clear if Ogun State Governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun an indegine of Abeokuta will be there as this may be the last for him to attend as the Governor of the state and City he transformed with massive road networks like Denver Colorado.
Apart from Lagos it will not be wrong to say that Abeokuta the capital of Ogun State is the most beautiful City in the South West and that credits goes to Governor Ibikunle Amosun who did more than any Governor since the state was created in 1976 and the state is ranked third in the country behind Lagos and Rivers State in IGR.
One thing is clear about this 2018 convention, all the hotels are fully booked, Denver will witness something different beyond ordinary for the next three days the Oracle says one of the things Denver has in common with Abeokuta are the hills and rocks, they are just like home with sun coming down behind them.
Colorado is a state very close to Utah, and Nevada with Las Vegas in sight and Hoover Dam and some historical places just like Abeokuta with all the proud history around Ogun River and Olumo Rock and closer to Lagos.
Oracle will hope ENA will invite US Chamber of Commerce to future events if they are not already and a bit of trade shows to attract business home and if local food like Amala Laafun, Raisi (rice) ofada, with Gbure soup, robo, and other delicacies will not be ignored.
