The diocesan bishop said it found Akeredolu worthy of the honour by being an Ambassador of Christ in character, service and good governance by which the Diocese noted with satisfaction the transformational projects in Ondo State during the administration of Arakunrin Akeredolu.
In his sermon, Bishop Bada said consequent upon keeping faith with the promises contained in the Development Agenda of Arakunrin Akeredolu administration with the acronym, JMPPR, the Diocese of Akoko came up with the Award of Most Performing Governor in Nigeria to encourage him to continue to honour God with his performances as Governor of Ondo State.
The cleric said Governor Akeredolu has brought core values to governance with his track record and achievements in office.
