The Ondo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has debunked the allegation that the administration of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has not made a significant impact since inception.
The State chapter of the Mega Party of Nigeria had said that Akeredolu’s administration in the state has not recorded any achievements since inception.
But the party through its State Publicity Secretary, Alex Kalejaye, described the allegation as baseless and wicked.
Kalejaye admonished critics of the administration to always suppress sentiments in their assessments, and come up with constructive arguments that are supported with facts.
The APC spokesman argued that an administration that has constructed and repaired over 65 kilometres across the State, in 15 months “deserves commendations and not condemnation”.
Kalejaye said: “The APC-led government in Ondo State has ensured prompt payment of workers’ salaries, in addition to offsetting four of the inherited seven months backlog entitlements.The effects of this on the economic activities are unquantifiable.
“Besides construction and rehabilitation of roads, the government is also building and repairing over 50 schools, spread across the 18 local government areas, to enhance the conducive learning environment.
“The Governor has also directed the employment medical practitioners, besides administrative staff, to shore up efficiency in our health institutions. The previous government, in which leaders of the MPN belonged, and benefitted massively, failed in all these.”
Kalejaye said, “The worrisome spate of kidnapping and bank robbery has been successfully nibbed in the bud by the Akeredolu government.”
He said the completion of the long-abandoned Irele/ Igbotu embankment, “which has been variously described as magnificent” has further contributed to peace in the Niger Delta part of the State.
“It should be placed on record, and in clear terms too, that the government of Akeredolu has done all these without any increments, both in the federal allocation and in the internally generated revenue.
“The party that Mr Biyi Poroye belonged before his defection will always find it difficult to comprehend how the APC government has been able to achieve this much, within a short spell, and even with a lean purse”, he added.
