Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has opened up on his experience in office as the state number citizen since 2017. Akeredolu was sworn in as governor on February 24, 2017. “lt has been a great challenge; it was expected that it will take its toll but, by and large, I think I have enjoyed my one year”, he told Vanguard. “I have tried to run the government with the ease that it deserves. “It is not what I carried on my head; it is not a matter of life and death. I will do my bit and, when I am through, others will continue the work.”
On the state of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Akeredolu said, under him, the party has been allowed to exercise its independence. “The governor is a member of the party, but it doesn’t mean he is above the party. “Of course, a party in government will have more people and we are frightened at a time on how to manage the influx and continue without a robust opposition.
“The structure is solid under the leadership of Engr. Ade Adetimehin. We are solidly on the ground and, with God on our side, we are going to be here for a long time to come.”
