We are Set To Connect Okitipupa To Omotosho Power Plant -Gov. Akeredolu

•Mimiko, Agboola Can’t Fix Okitipupa, others power outage- Engr. Oyedele

Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, has disclosed that efforts are on to ensure that the power is restored to Okitipupa and other parts of the Southern Senatorial districts of the state.

Governor Akeredolu informed that an agreement will be signed with Omotosho power plant on Wednesday, September 29, 2020, that will enable Okitipupa to be connected with Omotosho.

The Governor said he has made frantic and unrelenting efforts alongside with the Executive Director of Niger Delta Power Holding Company, Engr. Ife Oyedele to ensure that power is restored to the area.

Governor Akeredolu spoke at his campaign rally held Methodist Primary School, in Okitipupa local government on Monday.

The Governor, in the company of his Lagos State counterpart, H.E Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and other leaders of the APC were welcome into Okitipupa by a mammoth crowd who also stormed the rally.

Governor Sanwo-Olu said Akeredolu has done well and deserved to be re-elected for a second term in office.

While urging the people to vote massively for the APC come October 10, 2020, he assured that Lagos to Ilaje would not be more than 30 minutes by the time the ongoing construction of Araromi -Ibeju Lekki road is completed.

Engr. Oyedele said it is only the APC led Federal Government that can help in restoring light to Okitipupa and other parts of the south senatorial district.

He said it is important that the APC remains in power in the state so as to continue to put more pressure on the Federal Government to resolve the light issue in the south.

“Mimiko was Governor for eight years. He didn’t do anything about our light. He neglected us here. Now, he’s taking Agboola around promising what he can’t do. Don’t be deceived! If you bring a Governor that is not in APC, the truth is that he can not help us on our light issue.

“APC must remain in power and I can assure you that efforts are on to restore light to our area. Already, some areas have lights. Tomorrow, we shall sign an agreement with Omotosho, so that Omotosho will be supplying light to Ikale land. We shall sign the agreement tomorrow. It’s a federal government job.

“The federal government is APC. That’s why you must not make a mistake of voting for another party. If another party wins, they can not do anything. We are almost through with this light issue.”

Others who spoke at the campaign rally include; Chief Olusola Oke SAN, Jimoh Ibrahim, Princess Oladunni Odu, Pastor Femi Agagu, Dr Malumi, Dr. Paul Akintelure and the two members of the APC in the house of Assembly representing Okitipupa one and two.

At the rally, some members of the PDP, ADC and other political parties decamped to the APC. They were led by Akinyemi Oladipupo, Hon. Sunday Arogbo, Temitope Kolawole (ADC) Tope Adebayo, Akinmoye Oluwanbe, Abiodun Oyekanmi and their numerous supporters.

•You’re Indeed Mr. Talk And Do – Ifedore Monarchs

Ondo State Governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming October 10, gubernatorial poll, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, has urged the people of the state to support continuity of his administration.

Governor Akeredolu who said the state can not afford to experiment with a new comer at the moment, stressed that there is gain in continuity.

The Governor spoke on Saturday at the local government campaign rally of the APC held at Igbara-Oke in Ifedore local government area.

He said consistency and continuity would guarantee completion of ongoing projects and the realization of the deep sea port which his administration is pursuing vigorously.

The Governor noted that he has fulfilled his campaign promises to the people of Ifedore local government, adding that he is prepared to do more.

Governor Akeredolu said his administration has constructed various roads in the local government including the Igbara-Oke road, Ibuji road, Isarun road, Ero and Ijare roads among others.

He said:”Consistency is key. You don’t experiment with governance. Let our performance be the judge. We have worked but we can do more. If there has been consistency and the late Agagu spent eight years, we would have had a port by now. Mimiko got there and abandoned it for eight years.”

Earlier at the palace of the Olowa of Igbara-Oke, Oba Dr. Francis Adefarakanmi Agbede , the monarch described Governor Akeredolu as a truthful leader who doesn’t promise and fail.

He said the Akeredolu administration has recorded major strides across the communities in Ifedore local government.

The Olowa who spoke on behalf of all the traditional rulers in the local government, said all the monarchs are with the APC and Governor Akeredolu.

He said they have decided to talk to their people to vote for the Governor for a second term in office because of the impact of the Akeredolu administration in the local government.

Describing the Governor’s campaign tour to the local government as a familiarization visit, the monarch said Governor Akeredolu did not need to campaign in Ifedore local government.

The minister of State of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Tayo Alasoadura, the running mate to the Governor, Hon. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, Chairman of the party in the state, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, the speaker of the state House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Bamidele Oleyelogun, Ambassador Sola Iji, Tunji Abayomi Esq, members of the house of Assembly and other notable leaders joined the campaign train of the Governor.
