The Deji and Paramount Ruler of Akure kingdom, Oba Ogunlade Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi, has declared that the Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has fulfilled his promises to the people of Akure kingdom.
The Deji of Akure said whoever says Akeredolu has not performed, particularly in Akure, the state Capital, would only be lying on what is visible.
According to the monarch: “when Governor Akeredolu assumed office amidst inherited debt running into billion, many people thought he wouldn’t perform.”
Oba Aladelusi spoke in his palace while playing host to Akeredolu and his campaign entourage.
Former Governor of Ogun State who is currently a serving Senator, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, minister of State for Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Donald Tayo Alasoadura and Mr. Niyi Akintola, were among the dignitaries who accompanied Akeredolu to the Deji’s palace.
Oba Aladelusi said: “Anyone that says Mr.Talk and Do didn’t perform in Akure is only lying. His work is all over the places. When he started and he inherited debt running into billions of naira I was saying that this man won’t do anything
“But to my surprise, what he has done is even more than what those who met surplus did. Anyone that love Akure and believes in Akure, I will always love. Our hospital that has been long abandoned is now wearing a new look courtesy of this Talk and Do Governor.
“He’s almost dualizing the whole of Akure. Aketi has done very well and he has appointed our people into government. We want to pray for our governor.”
Responding, Governor Akeredolu said Oba Aladelusi has shown, beyond doubt, his love and commitment to the development of Akure kingdom.
He said: “You have convinced me beyond any doubt, that you love this Akure. You made a case that for many years at the federal level, Akure has nothing. But today, we are happy that the minister from Ondo State is from Akure. Our concern is that the party at the federal level should be the same with that of the state level.
“We thank You. Akure is our state capital. And it is important that we work here. And we will do more. We have a college of medicine here. We are building a 500-bed hospital in Akure. You must vote for continuity for this work to continue.
“We are saying that there must be connection to global economy. Akure airport is designated as a cargo airport. There are many benefits we are enjoying from the federal government and it is because of the relationship we have with the federal Govt. We will construct Igbatoro road.”
