Governor Akeredolu-Reason Why I Wept In Okitipupa.

Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, rounded off his "Meet the Delegates Tour" yesterday in anticipation of next Monday's primary election of the All Progressives Congress ( APC) in the state. 

Governor Akeredolu, who rounded off the four-day tour with a visit to Ondo South Senatorial District, toured the six local government areas in the district to attend the voting and support delegates.

In each of the local government areas, the governor and his entourage were received by party faithful and members of the public who turned out to see the governor in large numbers.

Addressing the delegates to the local government of Ilaje, Governor Akeredolu said he was sure that the local government would support him this time around. He said his administration was passionate about the establishment of Port Ondo, which would finally be an economic turnaround for the state and secure the future of unborn generations.

He explained why I was crying the first day I visited the only tertiary institution in Ondo South. In Okitipupa, the story was the same as the people turned out to give the governor a rousing welcome. Addressing the people, Akeredolu said, "When I got here, what made me most angry was the way I met OSSUSTECH (now Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa) the day I came, I wept.

“The Vice-Chancellor told me that the University is the citadel of the failed enterprise. Today, go there, we've finished the auditorium, the Senate building, and so on. "We've just started. The bypass that we are building is for the Okitipupa. It's about reducing traffic and injuries in Okitipupa. This is a virgin lane. There's never been a lane there before. We are determined to do more.

The governor was received at Ese-Odo with a funfair. The Governor said there are many things that have been done to the local government in terms of the projects that have built the city. While addressing the people in the Irele Local Government Area, the Governor said that his administration would have begun exploring bitumen, but for the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic that has stalled the process.

“I thank you for not having lost this municipal government before. If not for COVID-19, we 're meant to be focused on the bitumen right now. All the equipment was brought here. 

The yards have been refurbished. When the discovery of bitumen has ended, it's an end to poverty. ""In Irele here, we 're constructing a 6.3 km township route, a 1.5 km Ayeka Route intersection, and we've installed thirty-three public primary schooners.

“The governor stepped into the warm embrace of the people of Ore, the headquarters of the Odigbo Local Government Region. He said his administration had fulfilled its campaign promises to the people of the city. 

"We vowed during the 2016 campaign that we would build the bridge, and we did it. It's not because of our strength, but because of Allah. We did that. We promised to repair the lane, we didn't do it.

There's more to come. We 're going to do more. "Akeredolu said. At the last stop in Ile-Oluji / Okeigbo local government, the governor urged the delegates to vote for him on Monday. He pointed to the roads that his administration had constructed in the area, stressing that it was the beginning of great things to come.
