We’ll continue where Mimiko stopped – Gov Akeredolu

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State on Tuesday said his predecessor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, should be appreciated for leaving behind immense achievements to be built upon.

Akeredolu made the assertion during his courtesy visit to Oba Victor Kiladejo, the Osemawe of Ondo Kingdom in Ondo town.

The governor said that people of the state had good reasons to be proud of Mimiko due to his monumental achievements, including the medical village in Ondo.

“The medical village is one of the best in Nigeria. Government is a continuum and we will continue where he stopped,” he said.

Akeredolu solicited the cooperation of Ondo indigenes toward the success of his administration.

He also promised to look into the issue of land grabbers with a view to resolving the problem.

The governor said that he would constitute a team of lawyers to interface with the people and subsequently advise the government on the issue.

According to him, this is to ensure that land owners are not dispossessed of their landed property.

Earlier, Oba Kiladejo described Akeredolu as a man of his words.

“He is a very good man who has started very well and by the grace of God, he will continue to do very well and be stronger than when he started.

“We, however, have a problem in Ondo with land grabbers.

“They constantly disturb us and we want to plead with you to help us resolve the issue as soon as possible,” he said.
