The Wife of Ondo State Governor, Arabinrin Betty Anyanwu -Akeredolu, has lauded the effort of the Akeredolu -led Government towards ensuring rapid industrialization within the State. She made this known during a breakfast meeting with Klick Konnect Network towards the implementation of the Cassarev project which held on Wednesday at Heritage Hotel, Akure.
Cassarev (Cassava Revolution) is a value chain program designed to explore the many advantages of cassava towards the economic development of Ondo State. The implementation would see to the establishment of an ethanol factory and contribute to human capital development within the State.
In her address, Mrs Akeredolu observed that good governance is possible in Nigeria but called on politicians to commit to people oriented projects such as Cassarev.
“It is refreshing when a son of the soil with people’s interest is in government. The Arakunrin government teaches us that good governance is possible in Nigeria. But first, our leaders must focus on projects that have direct impact on the people.
” Arakunrin has also convinced the world that Ondo State is a safe place for profitable investment. When the person at the helm of affairs is one of unquestionable character, it becomes easy for people from different parts of the world to come and invest in the State. ” She said.
Speaking on the need for gender balance within the State, the First Lady encouraged the project coordinators to ensure that women are carried along throughout the implementation process stressing that this would help to boast the total outcome of Cassarev.
Earlier in his address, the Chief Executive Officer, Klick Konnect Network, Mr. Alex Ajipe, appreciated the Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, for his unwavering commitment to industrial and human capital development within Ondo State pledging to ensure that Cassarev is duly implemented to achieve its aims and objectives.
