The Ondo State Acting Governor, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has called on the people of the state and all stakeholders to join him in carrying out the vision of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, in moving the state forward.
Akeredolu had transmitted power to Aiyedatiwa to act as the governor after he returned to Germany on medical vacation.
The governor had also informed the state House of Assembly about the development through a letter on Wednesday.
The acting governor, in a statewide broadcast, on Thursday, admitted that the political crisis that had engulfed the state in recent time have challenged the love for the state and democracy, urging everyone to forget the past, come together, and join hands with him to develop the state.
He said, “Yesterday is already behind us. This is the time to carry aloft, with love and affection for one another, the laudable vision and mission of the governor for the state. I appeal to every member of the government
of Ondo State for your genuine support, cooperation, and dedication.
” We need a renewed unity to berth the significant and accelerated development clearly envisioned and vigorously pursued by Mr. Governor.
“My good people of Ondo state, what happened in the past was a temporary delay in our democratic journey. As a government, we have recovered.”
According to him, the political crisis which lingered for some months delayed the progress of the state and affected the people, hence the need for all stakeholders to come together to work for the people.
“Also of paramount importance is the expectation of our people that we continue to deliver on the mandate given to Mr. Governor and my humble self. We must return quickly to the path of accelerated progress that has eluded the state in the last few months. We must excuse unnecessary distractions.
“We can no longer be separated in interest or divided in purpose. We must stand together until the end. We must come back stronger and more determined to advance the welfare and security of our people, being the primary objective of government as encapsulated in the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended,” he charged
Aiyedatiwa lauded President Bola Tinubu, the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje, and other stakeholders at the state and the national level for their intervention in resolving the crisis.
