As encomiums continue to pour in for the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, for his first 100 days in office, a former National Secretary of the Labour Party, Dr. Kayode Ajulo, has commended him for a good start and charged him for greater heights as he continues to count into the rest of his four years mandate.
Ajulo, who expressed satisfaction with the good start of the governor, said Akeredolu had already begun to lay the foundation for a better future for the people of Ondo State.
â€œFrom what we have seen Arakunrin done in about his one hundred days in office, we canâ€™t but admit the governor is laying the foundation for a better future for Ondo State. Within such short period of time, the governor has given governance a new meaning and rekindled the hope of the people for a better tomorrow. Today, the people can look forward to the future with hope and unflinching optimism.â€
He added that, â€œGovernor Akeredolu deserves our commendation for how he has been able to pay the salaries of the stateâ€™s public servant five times since his assumption of office in February till date. Another place, where he has shown a good sign is settling the crisis in state House of Assembly and placing premium on Agriculture sector.
â€œWith what the governor has started in that sector, the glory of the state in agriculture will not only be brought back, but thousands of employment would have also been created. We can also see what he has done in ensuring there are good roads and other infrastructures. â€œ
Ajulo was of the opinion that the governor was lucky to have met development he could build on, noting that the people of Ondo state were in for a great time, based on dedication, commitment and the determination Akeredolu has demonstrated in taking the state to the next level.
He however tasked the governor on certain things that include reviewing the payment of traditional rulers in the state, so they could be more effective, especially as it has to do with extending the hands of fellowship and ensuring safety was crucial in the state. He also admonished him not to abandon some pro-people projects of his predecessor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and keep up the tempo of the good work he has started so that the state could be a better place for all and sundry.
