Anyaoku who arrived the state last Tuesday took time out to visit some of the projects of the Mimiko led administration ahead of the symposium he chaired on Wednesday as part of activities marking the 7th anniversary of the administration.
Speaking with newsmen shortly before his departure from the state, at the weekend, Anyaoku described the administration ‘s achievements as novel in all sectors of the state ‘s economy.
He said the governor has in the last seven years, demonstrated uncommon leadership in all sectors, particularly in the health sector, and thus urged other states to copy the Ondo example in qualitative healthcare delivery, to achieve the goal of Nigeria being a Medical Tourism destination.
Labeling the achievements of the government as “true transformation”, Anyaoku said Nigeria will realise its dreams if the kind of welfare services provided by the Ondo State government become a common sight in other parts of the country.
