Governor Akeredolu’s National Honour, well deserved- Ondo APC
The All Progressives Congress in Ọndo state has congratulated Governor Rotimi Akeredolu on the national honour bestowed on him by the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari.
The party, in statement issued by its Director of Publicity, Steve Otaloro, said the honour was indeed well deserved.
The statement added, “Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has proved without any doubt to be governor with immense capacity to deliver dividends of democracy to the people who elected him.
“He has been able to touch all sectors of the state and develop the infrastructure of the Sunshine State to enviable heights.
*As a political party, we are happy to have been able to support him as partner in progress in the provision of democratic dividends to the people of Ondo State and we gladly share in conferment with the National Honours of the Commander of the Order of the Niger, CON.
“Though the Governor said he never expected the award but that nevertheless, it meant a lot to him.
“Some of us believe his modesty would not allow him to admit to some of his uncommon leadership qualities as Chairman of the Southern Governors’ Forum and that of the Southwest Governors’ Forum that have given the state and indeed the region a place of pride in terms of securing the life and property of our people against banditry and terrorism that have plagued the region hitherto.”
The party thanked President Buhari for deeming it fit to honour Governor Akeredolu, stressing that, “to whom much is given, much is expected in return. This honour will definitely galvanize Governor Akeredolu to redouble his effort and his good work in service to the people of Ondo State.”
