2024 Guber: l’ll Carryout Ondo Seaport Project, Aiyedatiwa Assures

Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo state, has assured the people of the state that he would implement the Ondo Seaport project, if elected.

Aiyedatiwa made the promise at Igbokoda, headquarters of Ilaje local government area of the State, during the continuation of his campaign tour ahead of the Saturday governorship primary of the party in the state.

He said that his administration “will pursue the implementation of the Ondo Sea Port and complement the efforts of the Federal Government in restoring power supply to the Southern senatorial district of the State.

The governor who was responding to requests of religious leaders in the area, said the sea port is a legacy project of the former governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, which must be sustained for the economic growth of the State.

According to him”As for the power issue, one of our sons who works with the NDDC has continued the job and it’s 98% completed.

“The BEDC authority has the challenge of meters and since many people are owing them, they cannot procure meters for individuals.

“Our government will help in procuring meters as I have asked those in charge to calculate the cost. As soon as that is done, power will be restored.”

At his Ilaje, council area, Odigbo, and Okitipupo, the governor was given a rousing welcome by the people.

The governor while addressing the crowd, said: “I extend my heartfelt appreciation to all the esteemed leaders and members of our party hailing from Ilaje local government.

“The overwhelming expression of joy from your hearts speaks volumes. To the vibrant Ilaje youths, I am deeply grateful for your steadfast support.

” Your impressive turnout today fills me with confidence, knowing that come Saturday, your presence will only multiply across the wards.

“Our collective resolve for continuity is resolute, and to achieve this, it is imperative that we all show up on Saturday equipped with both our membership and voter cards. Together, we shall excel.”

Across the three local government areas, party leaders and stakeholders reaffirmed their full support for the governor, affirming that Aiyedatiwa remains their preferred candidate of the party.

In Odigbo, the Governor visited the traditional ruler of the land, Orunja of Odigbo, Oba Rufus Adegboyega Akinrinmade, expressing gratitude for the monarch’s endorsement and prayers.

He reaffirmed his commitment to exploring the natural resources in Odigbo and other communities in the southern senatorial district for the betterment of the state.

Aiyedatiwa pledged to prioritize the traditional institution in his governance.

The Governor while addressing party loyalists at Maga primary school, Ore, he appreciated them for their sustained solidarity, with a pledge to sustain the good governance he has started.

He said, “I deeply appreciate each one of you for standing by me up to this moment. It’s evident that Odigbo stands united with me, and I’m confident that you are all ready for Saturday’s election.”

Also addressing party leaders and members at Okitipupa, the governor thanked them for their overwhelming support which will translate to victory at the primary.

He expressed his gratitude for their endorsement, assuring them that he would not let them down.

Earlier, the governor had paid a visit to the Jegun of Idepe-Okitipupa, Oba Michael Obatuga Adetoye and Amapetu of Mahin Kingdom, Oba William Oluwasegun Akinyomi, where the governor received royal blessings.
