“The enabling investment climate created by the Akeredolu led government and his efforts in attracting investments, creating jobs, necessary infrastructure and increasing internally generated revenue was critical to the feat achieved today”

“The efforts of Governor Akeredolu in improving Ondo State’s economy from civil servants based to industrial based economy cannot be overemphasized”
