The Consolidated APC Grassroots Movement (CAGRAM) has issued a statement advising the newly sworn-in Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State, to continue the commendable work initiated by his late predecessor, Rotimi Akeredolu. Aiyedatiwa, who assumed office following Akeredolu’s unfortunate demise due to prostate cancer, previously served as the deputy governor.
In the statement, Dr. Agbi Stephen, Deputy National Chairman of CAGRAM, emphasized the need for Aiyedatiwa to swiftly resume the developmental agenda disrupted by Akeredolu’s prolonged absence for medical treatment in Germany. Akeredolu had temporarily handed over the reins during his absence, but unfortunately, he passed away in Germany.
Stephen congratulated Aiyedatiwa and urged him to prioritize the welfare of the masses while fostering unity among the people for the accelerated development of the state. The deputy chairman highlighted the importance of community support for Aiyedatiwa, emphasizing the party’s backing and the collective responsibility of the state’s residents.
Aiyedatiwa’s task, according to CAGRAM, involves a speedy recovery of the state’s developmental goals, previously hampered by Akeredolu’s illness. The movement called on party faithful and the citizens of Ondo State to rally behind the new governor as he endeavors to bring the state up to date with the renewed vision of President Bola Tinubu’s government.
The transition from Akeredolu to Aiyedatiwa marks a critical period for Ondo State, and CAGRAM’s appeal underscores the importance of continuity and commitment to the previously established development plans. As Aiyedatiwa steps into his role, the expectations are set not only on his ability to lead but also on his dedication to fulfilling the promises of progress made by his late predecessor.
In conclusion, the statement by CAGRAM reflects a call for unity, support, and continuity in governance, with a focus on realizing the developmental aspirations set by Akeredolu for the benefit of the people of Ondo State.
