You ‘ve done well, Igbos tell Akeredolu

By Chris Chimezie
Igbo Community, under the auspices of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Ondo State chapter has pledged their continued support and loyalty to the State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) in his quest to take the state to the promise land.

The Igbos whose leaders from the 18 local government Areas of the State were in attendance, made the pledge through their leader  Eze Gregory Iloehika when they paid a courtesy visit to the Governor in his office in Akure.

The Eze Ndigbo in Ondo State, Iloehika who described the Governor as a man of his words, lauded him for fulfilling promises made to people of the state and Ndigbo in particular.

Also, President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in the state, Ezechiefo applauded the Governor for giving credence to his promises and creating a conducive environment under which their businesses have continued to thrive.

He commended the Governor for encouraging a more cleaner environment by relocating roadside traders to a very conducive environment and appealed for the employment of Igbo graduates whenever government opens the avenue for employment.

Ezechiefo who appealed for the completion of the Igbo Ultra-modern Shopping Mall embarked upon by the past administration, used the visit to invite the Governor to the forthcoming Igbo Cultural Day which holds on December 8, 2018.

Special Assistant to the Governor on Igbo Matters, Mr Okafor, stressed that Ndigbo and people of the state are happy for voting for a man who did not only make promises, but fulfilling them even beyond people’s expectations.

He assured that Ndigbo will continue to support the Akeredolu-led administration for more successes, pay their taxes, be law-abiding and maintain cordial relationships with their host communities.

Responding, Governor Akeredolu thanked the visitors for acknowledging some of his administration’s achievements, saying he could have done more, but for insufficient funds.

He described them as hardworking people who have contributed to the economic development of the State and the country in general through taxes generated from their businesses.

Akeredolu stated that the present administration will continue to embark on projects and programmes that will have direct impact in the lives of citizens of the state.

While assuring that qualified Igbo graduates would be gainfully employed, he said other demands made would be addressed as soon as the state’s financial status improves.

The Governor described them as his inlaws, however, assured that he would grace the forthcoming Igbo Day.
