The Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on Thursday has said the military is doing better in term of welfarism under civilians than the military government.

Akeredolu stated this while commissioning the newly constructed six kilometers road in the 32 Artillery Brigade Barrack in Akure, the state capital.

The project, which began March and completed June last year, was constructed by the administration of Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN.

Akeredolu, represented by the Deputy Governor, Hon. Agboola Ajayi, said men of the Nigerian Army had sacrificed a lot and deserved better working environment.

According to him, “we came on board February, 2017, I drove through the road for an event called ‘tombola’ night and it took me more close to an hour due to the deplorable situation of the road then before I got to my destination and I immediately promised the Army to get solution to the bad road.

“It is obvious that the military men are doing better under the civilian government”.

Commending the Governor, Maj. Gen. Anthony Omozeje, the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 2 Division, Nigerian Army, Ibadan, said the new road in the barracks is in the recognition of the role of the military in providing security for the people of the state.

He said “this will impact on the welfare of the officers and troops of this brigades, and it will also have multiple effects on their ability and capacity to deliver on our statutory mandate.

“The welfare is the key aspect, it is the effort of the brigade commander to secure the complex and beautify the brigade environment”.
