The All Progressives Congress (APC), Ondo State chapter, has expressed its disappointment with the uninformed criticism and negative vibes from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) regarding the government projects and positions of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
The APC commended the State Executive Council for their uprightness, transparency, and openness in their resolution in passing vote of confidence in the state governor for his dedication in bringing dividends of democracy to the people.
The State Director Media and Publicity of the party, Mr. Steve Otaloro, in a statement signed and made available to journalists said it was disheartening to witness the PDP consistently disparage the achievements of Governor Akeredolu and his government, with their attacks being hopelessly wide of the mark.
Recall that the PDP in a statement through its State Publicity Secretary, Mr.Kennedy Peretei criticized the State Executive Committee of Akeredolu-led government for coming up with a meaningless communique passing a vote of confidence in Akeredolu.
Otaloro in the statement pointed out that the latest criticism from the PDP regarding the State Executive Council’s resolution on Governor Akeredolu’s government was yet another example of baseless attacks.
He said the resolution in a communique commended the governor for his commitment to good governance, integrity, and exemplary leadership, which has consistently motivated and inspired the council members to fulfill their duties to the state.
In the communique, the State Executive Council highlighted Akeredolu’s leadership qualities, including his compassion, vision, commitment to development, progress, and the peaceful atmosphere in the state, which Otaloro explained was twisted by the PDP, who deemed it a meaningless communique that passed a vote of confidence in the governor.
“It is important to note that the communique was supported by the majority of the cabinet members, with only two members abstaining from signing. The democratic principle of majority decision-making was upheld, allowing both the majority and minority views to be acknowledged.
We are pleased that even the PDP acknowledged the Director-General of Performance and Project Implementation Monitoring Unit, Mr Babajide Akeredolu, inspecting ongoing projects in the state capital, debunking their earlier claims that no projects were being executed.
“The inspection of government projects is a crucial aspect of ensuring diligent and timely delivery of contracts. It is commendable that the political leadership in the state is actively involved in monitoring these projects for the benefit of the people.
“As the ruling political party in Ondo State, we commend the State Executive Council for their uprightness, transparency, and openness in their resolution. We fully align with their thoughts on Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, who deserves commendation for his dedication to bringing dividends of democracy to the people.
“We validate the State Executive Council’s resolution and pass an overwhelming vote of confidence on Governor Akeredolu and his cabinet members on behalf of the good people of Ondo State.
“We appreciate their tireless efforts in working for the overall good and interest of the state.” Peretei stated.
