As Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu marks one year anniversary in Ondo State, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Ifedayo Abegunde, has assured that the administration would deliver bountiful dividends of democracy to the people.

Abegunde said this when speaking with The Guardian in Akure, revealing that the present administration had signed seven Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs), and five agreements to effect massive industrialisation of the state.

He noted that these multi-billion naira projects with both national and international investors would end the age-long massive youth unemployment, lead to huge economic prosperity and other innumerable benefits for the state.

“Among these is the MoU with Greenfield Asset Limited, for the establishment and management of commercial scale poultry farm and powdered egg farm project, valued at N42 billion and located at Emure-Ile, Owo LGA. It will be flagged off on Thursday, and Ondo State has 10 per cent equity and one director.

“There is the engagement of 18,000 youths for agric value chain opportunities across the state, and they will be trained by the foremost agricultural training institute in the country, Federal College of Agriculture Akure (FECA),” he said.

Abegunde listed other numerous achievements in agriculture, security, health, education, transportation, sports, labour, workers’ welfare, infrastructural, community and social development projects throughout the three senatorial districts of the state.

He added that the prospects are well articulated in the “Blueprint to Progress, 2017-2021,” the course of Akeredolu’s administration as put together by the
Strategic Development and Policy Implementation Committee (SDPIC); and the 2018 Budget which is first of its kind in the state.

“2018 Appropriation Law of N181.424 billion has 46 per cent of the fiscal projection set aside as capital expenditure, thus making it the Ondo State budget with the highest percentage for capital projects since the creation of the state 42 years ago.”

The SSG urged the people of the state to continue to support the present administration, and the All Progressives Congress (APC) so that Governor Akeredolu and his cabinet can deliver the dividends and bounties of democracy to them.

“The government of Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu is a people-centred government: of the people, by the people and for the people.
