Ondo APC backs Akeredolu over ban on activities of Tipper Drivers


The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State  has thrown its weight behind the ban on activities of Tipper and Quarry Owners’ Associations in the State by the government.


The  Party described the government’s step as timely and appropriate.


According to a statement issued by the party’ s Publicity Secretary, Alex Kalejaye, the party said the decision was taken the interest of the masses.


The statement reads, ” Our Party is deeply worried about the resolve of the association to increase the price of a tipper load of sand by 50 percent in a swoop! As a matter of fact, feelers from the majority of the stakeholders in the State show that the increase would cause excruciating effects on the different end users, including the struggling segment of the society.

“No responsive government would sit back and watch the citizens groan under oppressive decision, no matter the cover. The timely reaction of the government affirms the fact that this administration is roundly committed to the well-being of the citizenry.



“It takes a government that listens to the yearnings of its people, and serves dispassionately to always be on their guard. An Electorate that entrusts mandate to a government deserves its protection.



“The APC-led administration would explore all positive measures in its quest to ensure an economically buoyant State. Some of the efforts are already yielding fruits, while others are at advanced stages, from which individuals and organisations will benefit in the shortest possible time.



Ondo State APC appeals to various associations within the Sunshine State to show understanding, and do their best to avoid imposing hardship on the people. Every organisation is perceived to be a partner in the ongoing development stride of the government”
