Barely four months to the expiration of his first term Olusegun Mimiko, Governor of Ondo State, Monday charged all political office holders in the state to continue to intensify efforts towards achieving more result-oriented programmes.
Mimiko urged them not to relent in their efforts to achieve quality service delivery as more grounds are yet to be covered before the February 24 swearing-in for his second term in office.
The governor stated this while receiving members of the forum of chairmen of boards and parastatals of the state government led by Chief Dele Awosika, who were in his office to congratulate him on his victory in the October 20 gubernatorial election.
Mimiko thanked the forum for revolutionalising government’s agencies for effective service delivery to the people.
He also assured them that his administration would continue to build more mega schools at the primary and secondary levels, stressing that he will continue to work harder to bring more development to the nooks and crannies of the state.
Mimiko said: “It is obvious that our parastatals in the last three and half years have all come alive. The success of this administration to some extent has been attributed to your commitment to efficient service delivery to our people. I want to implore you all not to relax in your service to our people.”
“The present administration is not over yet and our people are still expecting more dividends of democracy from us. We have a lot to do in education and as a matter of fact, many of our mega schools are ready for commissioning.” Mimiko said.
The chairman of the forum and chairman of the Ondo State Property Development Corporation (OSDPC), Chief Dele Awosika, in his remarks appreciated the governor for his quality leadership and tireless efforts to develop the State.
He assured the governor of more cooperation and support from the forum as he sets to begin another four years in office.
