Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), just last week sworn into office for another four-year-term, has pledged to complete all projects his administration enbarks upon.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared him winner of October 10, 2020 election.
Pedging to perform even better than his first term, Akeredolu urged the people to support his administration to serve them better and leave a lasting legacy.
The governor further promised effective project implementation, saying no project would be abandoned in any district under his administration.
Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) garnered 292,830 votes to defeat Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who came second with 195,791 votes. Agboola Ajayi, who had had an endless political brawl with Akeredolu and finally ended up in the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) came a distance third with 69,217 votes.
He assured his administration would not depart from the path which had so far earned him affection and deep reverence from the citizenry, noting he came on board with the resolve to confront all challenges without leaving any behind.
He noted that although his administration was yet to reach the set goals, he was confident he was on the right path, assuring he would continue, with more vigour, to justify the trust earned by his administration.
Governor Akeredolu who stressed the COVID-19 pandemic had aken serious toll on the global economy, again predicted things might get even worse as loss of jobs has been on a frightening scale.
He spoke: “Production of goods and services has plummeted. Our national economy is in recession. Ingenuity, resourcefulness, courage and hard work will be the needed virtues for survival in the days ahead.”
