The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has pledged to support Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on his re-election in the Ondo Governorship poll scheduled for Oct.10.
Governor Sanwo-Olu, who is also the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council for Ondo State, commended Akeredolu for his remarkable performance in the state.
The governor gave the commendation during the campaign tour of the APC candidate, to seek the blessings of traditional rulers of Okitipupa local government area of the state, ahead of the election.
“I witnessed all the developments in the state because Akeredolu has been working day and night to ensure things get better. If you don’t believe him, you should believe in his works. His sterling performance is not negotiable and deserves re-election; go and tell the people that you have seen a deliver who will take Ondo State to higher heights,” said the governor.
According to reports, the traditional rulers in the area had earlier recommended the re-election bid of Akeredolu and applauded his performance since he became governor in the State.
Oba Gbadebo Bajowa, the Rebuja of Osooro land, who spoke on behalf of all the traditional rulers, applauded the governor for fulfilling most of his election assurances, adding that the renaming of the state-owned university, Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH) after their memorable son, the late Olusegun Agagu, satisfied them.
“You will succeed in your second term bid because you have made us happy and all traditional rulers are behind you; we support and endorse you, “he said. On his part, Akeredolu said he will not commend himself for all he had done, but that his works were there to speak for him.
He urged the community residents to go out in large numbers on the election day and vote for the APC, adding that the economy of the state would boom as there were several plans to turn it around.

The seaport project in llaje LGA, exploration of bitumen, rejuvenation of the Okitipupa Palm Oil Company will boom the state economy is in the pipeline,” said the governor.
