Ahead of the 2020 Ondo state governorship election, a non governmental organization has given their backing to the second term bid of Governor Oluwakoretimi Akeredolu.
The leader of the group, ‘2021 Project Integrity Movement’, Prof. Olu Aboluwoye at a Press Conference he addressed in Akure urged the people to work for the return of Governor Akeredolu in office.
According to Prof. Aboluwoye, if Governor Akeredolu is re-elected for the second term, this would enable him to complete ongoing projects in the state.
Aboluwoye said, the Governor is the first to promote primary school teachers to grade level 15, unlike his predecessors that often made such promotions an honorary one.
He disclosed how the Governor empowered market women with loans that ran into several millions of Naira without collateral to boost their various trades.
On education, he said, no fewer than 420 primary schools were rehabilitated with modern facilities such as toilets in the last few years, while 69 staff of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko that were sacked by his predecessor were reinstated.
Also in the area of agriculture, he said over 300,000 seedlings were distributed to farmers across the state to improve the standard of the state on Cocoa production from her present seventh position to a reasonable level the world over.
His words, “it is pertinent to put it on records that his activities for the past over two years are impacting, stimulating, encouraging, invigorating and inspiring as an epitome of good governance with an aura of distinction and respect”.
