Speaking throughout a debate organized by the state radio tv company, OSRC, Akeredolu said the first time period of his administration was used to provoke insurance policies that may put together a good floor to push the State in the direction of the pact of industrialisation in step with the imaginative and prescient of the founding fathers of Western Nigeria, saying “my second term shall be a positive reference point in Nigeria”.

Akeredolu also denied the hearsay that his nuclear family members and children have taken over the rein of governance within the state.

The governor challenged anybody with truth to come out to show that any of his children has been awarded contract within the state.

He said, “Contrary to the imagine of many Nigerians that second time period Governors don’t do effectively, I want to say, at present, by the grace of God, that my second time period shall be a constructive reference point in Nigeria. You know, I’ll govern the people with out much distractions. I want to return Ondo State to the reign of Baba Ajasin when factories have been competing with every others.

“I want to run Ondo the way our sage, Awolowo governed Yoruba Land. I want history to be kind to me. You see how our baba, Awolowo is being remembered today, almost 35 years after he died, me too, I want to be remembered like him.”

He added, “I’m not yet satisfied with the number of jobs we have created. I am determined to do more. Yes, we have a number of industries that we have facilitated here and I’m proud of that. But I’m saying we can do more.”

On job creation and funding drive, Akeredolu said “this state has been industrialized in a manner that it has by no means been industrialized since Baba Ajasin left Government home. Today, the first cassava to Ethanol plant within the nation of Nigeria is in Ore, Ondo State via our funding drive.

“The first HDF plant in Nigeria is in Ondo State. We are speaking in regards to the textile business and the paper mill all at Ore industrial park. These are the issues we have introduced right here. It is for the people to see.

“We have Dongfeng that’s assembling trucks at our industrial hub in Ore. That’s monumental. Like I said earlier, Ore will be the new Nnewi before 2024. We are talking serious investment here not like those who spent eight years and cleared a vast land in Bolorunduro for truck assembly plant but they only ended up assembling grass.”

On the drive of his administration to have a Deep Sea Port in Ilaje Local Government Area of the State, Akeredolu said, “We have executed what no Governor has executed on this state. Today, we have the define Business Case. We have the implementation plans.

“We have taken this to the Port Authority. It’s leaving there now for the ministry of Transport. By the time it will get to the Federal Executive Council (FEC), we are going to get the port declaration. I’m positive that there will likely be a purposeful port in Ondo state before 2024 by the grace of God.

Speaking on his administration’s feat on agriculture, the governor said, ‘We have launched the youth on the ridges. We have distributed over 400, 000 improved seedlings of cocoa to our farmers. We have over 10,000 hectares of land at Jugbere for cocoa plantation.

“We have youth on the ridges that has over 1,000 youths in Agriculture. We have the Agropreneurs that’s being facilitated by the state govt and the Federal Govt. We have cleared many hectares of land for our youths. We are encouraging our youths to go into agriculture”.

Akeredolu also highlighted his administration’s initiatives in well being care within the state.

He said, “Today, in mom and little one hospital, children under the age of 5 are handled free of charge. But, the mom should have the Kaadi Igbe-Ayo. We have also launched the Contributory Health Insurance Scheme.

“When we came here, there are just two mother and child hospitals in the state. But today, we have added five more in the Northern and Southern senatorial districts of the state. Only yesterday, we added another mother and child hospital in Ifon where you have the best facility in the state”.

Speaking on his feats on infrastructural development, Akeredolu said, “I want to thank the people of Ondo State because in my journey through the marketing campaign tour we have gone via a number roads that we have constructed. And in so many locations people shouted Mr. Infrastructure. Mr. Road. I thank them very much.

“This is because we’re passionate in regards to the problem of infrastructure. As you’ll be able to see in our three and a half years, look on the roads we have constructed. Over 500 kilometers. Look at that redemption bridge in Ore. Several Govt has come and lied about it but at present, we did it in two years. Look at Oke-Alabojuto in Ikare, Look at Oke -Ogba, we have made historical past in phrases of road development.

“Lastly, I am here today, and I boast of my own integrity. When the opposition people say consultants have taken over our state, ask them for EVIDENCE. Let anyone bring evidence that any member of my family has gotten a consultancy job in this state.”
