The achievements recorded in the last two years of the Akeredolu-led administration have been described as unprecedented.

The Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the Governor, Mr Segun Ajiboye made this known during a chat with The Hope in his office in Akure yesterday.

He said Governor Akeredolu has proved that with dedication and determination, a leader can perform wonders even with little funds.

According to him “in the area of infrastructure, no government, at least, in the new dispensation has surpassed his records.

“As we speak, constructions of roads are going on in all the three senatorial zones, with more than 70 kilometers of roads completed.

“Look at workers’ welfare, and you’ll be amazed at what has been done in the last two years. The Governor met seven months salary arrears, but has cleared six, while at the same time he is up to date in payment of salary and allowances.

“lt is the same in all the other sectors, as he continues to make life easy for people of the state.

“You will recall that while taking his oath of office, he gave the people a message of hope, clear agenda of prosperity and a vision of abundant life and to a very large extent, Governor Akeredolu has delivered on these promises”, he said.

He also lauded Governor’s giant stride in Ikare Akoko, where the mythical Oke Alabojuto has been leveled and his efforts at Sabome and Ore in the south to have a first hand experience of the good works of the government in terms of various industries.

“In investment, the governor has attracted more investors to the state more than all the other administration put together. The airport, which was in a state of abandonment has come to life with daily flights to Abuja and Lagos.

“Our schools are now safer for our children to study with perimeter fence. SUBEB has either constructed or repaired more than 500 primary schools.

“The tertiary institutions are better funded. It is the same in the health sector and everybody can feel what the governor is doing. I believe it has been two years of great success and unprecedented achievements”, he said.

Also accessing the Governor’s performances in the last two years, was a University Lecturer, Dr Gbenga Abimbola who described Akeredolu’s achievements as unequalled, compared to his predecessors.

He said “In terms of worker’s welfare, he has performed far better than others. He met about seven months’ salary arrears and has cleared six remaining outstanding.

“Since he came, he never owed any worker, he has been paying on monthly basis, he made worker’s welfare his priority.

“Secondly, he has done excellently well in infrastructure development, especially in road projects.

“He completed some roads in the last two years and has awarded massive road projects across the state which are all ongoing. He has equally done well in other areas of governance”, he said.

Dr Abimbola admonished the Governor to focus more on the agricultural sector.

“In the next two years, beginning from now, he should create an enabling environment and re-orientate the people to go back to farming, not cutlass and hoe kind of farming, but mechanized farming and create more employment opportunities.

“Governor Akeredolu has also done well in terms of his education policy. He has maintained a relative peace with the labour union and other segment of the society.

“So far, so good, he has performed well and there is still room for improvement”, he said.
