Mimiko Urges Support For Akeredolu



Few days to the expiration of his tenure, the outgoing governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko has urged the people of the state to support the incoming administration of Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu.

He also implored the governor-elect not to scrap the policies on health made during his (Mimiko) tenure in the next administration.

Mimiko said his administration ensured that pregnancy was not a death sentence again in the state through various health policies that were made during his eight-year tenure.

The outgoing governor stated this while speaking during the second anniversary of the Agbebiye Initiative held in Akure, the state capital on Friday.

He explained that the Agbebiye scheme was aimed at reducing high maternal death rate in state and country at large, so that pregnant women and their babies can be adequately taken care of during and after child delivery.

The governor tasked the workers and other stakeholders in the state to give the incoming All Progressives Congress government to be led by Akeredolu maximum support so that the legacies will be sustained.

He said, “As God has given us the zeal and commitment to achieve all these feats in the health sector, I pray that God will put in the heart of the incoming government to continue with these good works.

“Don’t think that Mimiko is no longer the governor, you all have to cooperate with the incoming government to build on these successes for the benefit of our people.

“I know that the next government too likes good things and I am so sure that he (Akeredolu) will cooperate with you. I too will not relent in the bid to advise Akeredolu on Agbebiye because what is good is always good.”
