They maintained that the achievements of the Hon. Abiola Makinde led representation are largely unprecedented which has in no small measure repositioned the region for better growth and development.
While also commending the lawmaker for his sterling performance, he was also urged to raise the bar higher as he has already carved a niche of excellence and brilliance for himself.
Speaking at the event, Hon. Abiola Makinde while appreciating the Union Leaders and their various Representatives described the endorsement as a call for more action.
According to him, more than ever, he is well motivated and charged to deliver more for his people especially at the grassroots level.
In his words, ” My electoral promises was simple and it’s built on ensuring that the people get the best of democratic processes through qualitative representation which I am most passionate about”

“Our first term campaign mantra was WEALTH meaning Water, Education, Agriculture, Light, Training and Health. For our second term, the ‘E’ would not only mean Education, Empowerment and Entertainment are also added to it. Then we would also intensify other aspects of our campaign mantra which has seen Ondo witnessed astronomical developments through our representation”.
