Governor says support for regent will bring peace
The Ondo State governor, Olusegun Mimiko, has urged chiefs and people of Akure kingdom to support and cooperate with the new regent of the land, Adetutu Adesida.
Mr. Mimiko said, during homage to the regent on Monday in Akure, that the support would bring more peace and development in the kingdom.
He said that the reign of the late Oba, Adebiyi Adesida, although very short, brought an unprecedented development to the land in the areas of sustainable peace and infrastructure development.
The governor said that the late monarch enjoyed tremendous support from his subjects. He also stressed that he was able to record more successes because of his tenacity of purpose and zeal to develop Akure and make it a befitting state capital.
Mr. Mimiko, however, urged the regent to work closely with all stakeholders so that Akure could continue to witness more transformation.
“We are all living witnesses to the fact that late Oba Adebiyi Adesida was truly a lover of his people and Akure. He would come to me many times and the only issue he discussed was how to develop Akure,” he said.
The governor assured the regent of the support of the state government to ensure that Akure continued to witness more development and peace.
The regent thanked the governor and his cabinet members for the government’s commitment to the transformation of Akure into a modern city. She sought for the support of the government and the entire people of Akure, and prayed for peace and development of the state.
