Your doctorate award long overdue, APC tells Akeredolu

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo has described the  conferment of Doctor of Laws (Honorary Causa) on  Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) as long overdue.

The party expressed gratitude to the management of Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo, Oyo State, for spotting the vital gap for appropriate decision.

The party also congratulated  Governor Akeredolu, the Government of Ondo State, the Nigerian Bar Association and the informed people of Ondo State on the well deserved honour.

According to a statement issued by the state Publicity Secretary of APC, the award,is in recognition of Arakunrin Akeredolu’s selfless contributions to the development of jurisprudence in Nigeria, enhancement of human rights, and his avowed commitment to good governance.

The statement added, “In a society where political leaders seek attention and curry recognition, the legal giant’s preoccupation is to work for the betterment of humanity and posterity. He neither craves accolades nor seeks commendations.

“The massive investments of the Ondo State Government, particularly in roads and bridges, industrial expansion, health and agriculture under the leadership of Dr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, in less than five years, is unbeatable anywhere in the country.

“The State Chapter of the APC is convinced that the enviable recognition will spur Mr. Governor to further amplify his campaign for justice, fairness, equity, and selfless service in the public sphere.”
