The Deji of Akure Kingdom, Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi, has commended Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State for his developmental initiatives in the town, saying “Akure people are happy with the governor”.

The monarch gave the commendation on Thursday at the flag-off of the reconstruction of Akure-Oda Road to a dual carriageway.

Aladelusi said Akure people were particularly grateful to Akeredolu for changing the face of the town with massive road projects.

The traditional ruler noted that some of the roads had been completed while others were ongoing in the state capital.

He said that the Akeredolu led-government had touched every nook and cranny of the state, adding that the ancient town would always support the governor.

Aladelusi, who also commended the governor for the “prudent management” of the state’s resources, said that unprecedented massive infrastructural development in the state had earned the governor the new name of “Mr Road”.

“Some people are insinuating that I don’t like Gov. Akeredolu.

“If the governor is doing all these projects in my town and I am not happy with him, God may be angry with me. All Akure indigenes are happy with him.

“The government has touched everywhere. Akure people can’t thank you enough. You didn’t mismanage Ondo State money. People now call you Mr. Road, Arakunrin Road,” Aladelusi said.
