 “Arakunrin left an indelible mark on the annals of time, and his contributions to the development of our state, and indeed Nigeria, are etched in history.”

The governor emphasized the commitment to continuing and completing the projects initiated by Akeredolu across the state.

 “…just as we will strive to complete all the developmental projects he embarked upon as Governor of Ondo State.”

As the state anticipates upcoming elections, Aiyedatiwa called for peaceful political activities, urging all stakeholders to adhere strictly to electoral guidelines.

 “The election should be a contest of ideas and choices, not an opportunity to settle political scores or an excuse for calumny.”

In his pledge to bring people together, Aiyedatiwa expressed determination to build on the foundation laid by the previous administration, focusing on a peaceful and prosperous Ondo State.
