Akeredolu Applauds FG’s approval of Ondo Deep Sea Port

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has described the Federal Government’s approval of the Ondo Deep Sea Port as cheering.

President Muhammadu Buhari approved the operating licence for the Port at the FEC meeting held on Wednesday.

Akeredolu, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Richard Olatunde said that actualising the port project was very important to the state government.

The governor, who thanked President Buhari and other FEC members, said the approval was an impressive parting gift from the Buhari administration.

“Ondo Port is one of the most important projects of this administration. We are determined and committed to actualising this project that will set our state on the path of economic prosperity.

“Our dream for this port of Ondo is to serve as a conduit for our goods, agricultural produce, and very soon, our bitumen.

“It is the goal of this administration to ensure that the potential of Ondo State is maximised and that all necessary infrastructure required to make this a reality is put in place to achieve this,” he said.

Akeredolu also appreciated Minister of Transportation, Hon. Mu’azu Jaji Sambo for his intervention and commitment, adding that the people of the state were grateful for his valuable services as history would be kind to him.

“We equally noted with candour, the role of the Minister of State for Transportation, our own, Prince Ademola Adegoroye.

” Your impactful struggles and efforts have started yielding enduring fruit of development. Indeed, you have proven to be a true representative of your people. Your doggedness is admirable.

“We also appreciate everyone who has, one way or the other, contributed to the process of getting this approval. It is just a phase. We expect that this development will renew our vigour and drive our passion to deliver the Port Ondo project.

“As we say, we are planting a tree, under which shade we may not rest. Nevertheless, it is a worthy cause for the generation yet unborn. We are committed to any effort that targets the good of the next generation,” he said.
