|Ondo State Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu|
The governorship candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, and his top challenger in the forthcoming governorship election, Eyitayo Jegede from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), on Wednesday clashed on the performance of the governor so far in running the affairs of the state.
“You have toured the state, can you tell this gathering that you haven’t seen developmental projects? Be truthful,” the governor asked.
“I have not seen good governance anywhere even in Akure, the state capital. I will do better than you sir in office,” Jegede responded.
“I tarred the road leading to your house. That road was left untarred by the administration you participated in for eight years.”
“You tarred the road because your special adviser and a permanent secretary are living in the area. The Ondo people need fresh ideas of running a government and I am ready to open the government to the people.”
“That is why we created the Amotekun Security Outfit to complement the effort of the police and other security agencies. Amotekun can never fail because it is a well thought-out idea and an outcome of a security summit.“Since its creation, Amotekun has done well in checkmating the nefarious activities of kidnappers and some herdsmen,” he said.
