Ondo Guber: Akoko monarchs assure Akeredolu of reelection
Traditional rulers from Akoko Southwest local government area of Ondo State, have assured the state Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, of another four years in office.
The monarchs pledged their support for the governor while playing host to the campaign team of Akeredolu who visited the palace of the Olubaka of Oka, Oba Adebori Adeleye.
In his remark, Oba Adeleye, said it behoves the residents of Ondo North Senatorial District of the state to support Akeredolu, adding that the projects of the present administration remain unprecedented.
The monarch stated the bridge linking Ikun and Oba community was revamped after it became a death trap for commuters plying the environs.
He further stated that Akeredolu worked to ensure that the state-owned tertiary institution in the local government, Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba (AAUA), remains a 21st-century university, noting that erstwhile administration kept Osustech at arm’s length.
“The Governor is not an alien here in our town, he doesn’t promise what he won’t fulfil. In Akoko, he constructed Owo to Akoko road, he repaired the bridge at Ikun. The Governor also awarded the Ikun to Idoani road, he reconstructed Ayegunle to Oke-oka road,” Adeleye said.
“He revamped moribund schools, he also supported the Akoko farmers, he also resolved the crisis in the forest reserve”
“We monarchs are in your support”, the monarch openly declared.
Responding to the goodwill message of the monarchs, Governor Akeredolu said Akoko, Ose and Owo maintains a unique relationship, saying that he is optimistic that the monarchs will not let him down.
Akeredolu stated that: “For you to know that I show you love here in Akoko, we dualized the Ikare road. We made the Oke Alabojuto a dual carriage road. We will do more in Akoko”
“If we have good roads, our economy will skyrocket. Roads are imperative, and We will continue to cater for our farmers.
