By Adekola Afolabi
The Ondo State Governor Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu yesterday said that the developmental projects distributed across the nooks and crannies of the state was a deliberate policy of his administration.
Akeredolu spoke during a courtesy visit by executive members of Nigerian Bar Association, Owo branch.
He explained that the premium his administration placed on good governance was far beyond the limited value of dividends of democracy across Nigeria.
The governor further explained that a lot of the state resources were being expended on the maintenance of some Federal roads like Owo-Ikare and Akure-Ado Ekiti Roads.
According to him, the state would not be reimbursed for the road maintenances in view of a letter to him from the Federal Government.
He noted that the Ore Flyover and Okitipupa bypass would be completed before the end of the year, and the second quarters of 2020, respectively.
Earlier, Mr Tajudeen Ahmed, Chairman, NBA, Owo Chapter, described the performances of the governor as salutary and unprecedented in diverse sectors across the senatorial districts of the state.
The chairman also recognized Akeredolu’s role as the past NBA president, and revealed the decision of the association to confer on him the Grandpatron title at its law week which begins on Monday.
