Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has assured that the provision of social amenities for the people will continue to be his priority.
Akeredolu gave the assurance at the commissioning of a transmitter at Owode Community in Akure North Local Government Area.
The Governor, who was represented by the Commissioner for Youth Development and Sports, Mr. Saka Yusuf Ogunleye said providing social amenities for the people was the best way they could reap dividends of democracy.
“We owe the people the duty of service. Light through electricity is very crucial in every area people reside. Owode people, just like many other communities in the state, were living in darkness. This administration under my watch is determined to make such areas feel the impact of democracy by changing the trend”
He explained that apart from electricity, other problems of the people are being tackled.
“We are extending our responsibilities to cover other social amenities such as roads and water.
RUWASA is all over the state drilling boreholes and repairing faulty ones. The dry season is fast approaching and we do not want to see our people going to far places in search of water.”
He appealed to the people to continue to support the government, saying the period of government taking the people for a ride was over.
In his address, Special Adviser to the Governor on Public Utilities, Engineer Tunji Light Ariyomo said the government was working on a programme with a private organisation to make electricity available every time in every community of the state.
Chairman of the Landlords Association, Mr. T. Omodara thanked the state government for bailing the community out of perpetual darkness.
