Ignore PDP, Focus On Your Good Works, Ondo APC Tells Akeredolu
By Friday Omosola
Ondo State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has called on the State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to turned a deaf ears to the arranged distractions by the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, and remain focused on his laudable plans for the people.
In a statement by the party Publicity Secretary, Alex Kalejaye said it is impossible to achieve great goals if one caves into the temptation of flinging stones at any barking dog on his road to making a record, noting that distractions must be ignored, and focus on goals must be sustained.
APC added that the whole duty of a rudderless People Democratic Party(PDP) is to attack and fault any policy of the ruling party (APC), irrespective of its selfless values, adding that the attacks were not in the interest of the people, but to promote the chances of the opposition party ahead of prospective elections.
The party, however, described the Akeredolu led government as a reference point stating its achievements in the area of security and infrastructure as unbeatable across the land, affirming that Ondo Amotekun is arguably the most effective in the geopolitical zone.
“The Ondo State chapter holds that a government that invests massively in the security of lives and property has fared better than the one that builds skyscrapers in every street, leaving its people at the mercy of criminal elements.
“Ondo APC views as incongruous that a party which had no solution to the endless carnage and disruption of free flow of traffic in the ever busy Ore for eight years, would have no shame in digging for faults in the highly celebrated interchange constructed on the Sagamu/Benin Road, in less than three years by this administration,” APC said.

The party acknowledged the practical strategies the Governor has used in tackling the inherited terribly decayed infrastructures, shoring up the state’s Internally Generated Revenue and resolving issues of concern in the state.
The party also expressed joy over the commissioning of the state’s office of the Home Ownership Charter in Akure, saying it is a nondiscriminatory development that will benefit every property owner in the State.
They urged the government to continue pursuing establishment of more industries and the deep sea port in Ondo State, letting out that they have no doubts that the health sector, education and agriculture would not be touched.
