GOVERNOR Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state has decried array of abandoned projects by the previous administration in the state describing them as a disgrace to governance and diss
ervice to the people.
Akeredolu spoke at the commissioning of four projects completed by him at the Agagu University of Science and Technology (OSAUSTECH), Okitipupa in Ondo State.
The projects commissioned include the University Library, University Auditorium and the Administrative Building, all of which were initiated by the late Governor Olusegun Agagu, but abandoned for eight years by the immediate past administration of Dr Olusegun Mimiko.
While lamenting the array of abandoned projects initiated by the late Olusegun Agagu, the governor described “the manner of abandoning the projects due to political differences as a disgrace to governance and disservice to the good people of the Southern Senatorial District in particular and the entire state at large.
The Governor said his administration, which believes in the axiom that Government is a continuum, has even completed projects inherited from the same administration who neglected Agagu’s projects for eight years.
According to him, the unfortunate and deplorable situation in the University strengthened his administration’s resolve to change the narrative, by immediately commencing a gradual, radical and systematic implementation of the State Government’s strategic plan as it relates to the University.
Akeredolu said within hundred days in office, his administration completed the asphalt laying of the road from the Main Gate to the heart of the Campus, stressing that the road contract was awarded, but abandoned for over eight years.
