Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has explained how he spent his 2019 vacation.
According to him, he was in Abuja for the five weeks leave , meeting with different development partners on possible ways of developing the state.
The leave afforded me the opportunity for a personal reflection and also medical review of my health on the advice of my doctors in order to be renewed for the all-important task of serving our state better than before.
“I am happy to report that in the last four weeks, new grounds were broken for bigger and wider opportunity to develop our land and the people. As you are aware, a very successful bilateral meeting was held with our partner, Medicus International to expand the healthcare system in the state. Our joint objective is to build a $1.1 billion world-class medical city in Akure, the state capital.
“We also held fruitful discussion with our technical partners and consultants for the development of the port in Ondo. Our joint commission is expected to visit the proposed site for the project next week as part of the process for commencement of works.
“I also attended the Nigeria Governors’ Forum meeting where new minimum wage for workers, among other things, was discussed. We were also present at the National Economic Committee meeting where issues of development and social security and grassroots economy were discussed.
The Governor equally met a World Bank delegation. ‘’ We also had bilateral engagement with the World Bank team, led by its new country director to accommodate Ondo State in its programmes and activate efforts towards fulfilling our campaign promises to the people.”
