APC Elders Task Akeredolu On Unity, Transparent Govt
Also, the Elders Assembly through their Chairman, Senator Olorunimbe Farukanmi implored the governor-elect to run a transparent and a real democratic government, when his administration fully takes off in February. The party had been factionalized along different divides before the party's primaries and the governorship election that produced Akeredolu as the winner.
Despite the victory, some leaders of the party had alleged marginalization in the different committees composed for transition and policy direction of the incoming government. However, Farukanmi said the unity among party leaders and members would be very essential to the success of the incoming government.
He said: "The Elders Assembly of APC in Ondo State would ensure that a good working relationship exists within all the party functionaries in government, as none of them can work in isolation, unity and cooperation are very essential.
"As members of the Elders Assembly, We want him (Akeredolu) to improve the economy of this state, and make agriculture the mainstay of our economy so that our people will be well fed. "We will also advise him to establish numerous industrial establishments to provide employment for our youths and others
.We will advise our government to empower the people so as to be able to enjoy modern health services and good housing needs. "He must avoid the mistakes of the past governors of our state since 1999.
Let him follow the legacies of Chief Adekunle Ajasin. Let him run a transparent administration." While pledging that the elders would fully support the Akeredolu's government, the Second Republic senator assured that the incoming APC governor would perform much better than his predecessors.
