Ondo Poll: Mimiko Promises To Develop Ilaje

Ondo State Governor  Olusegun Mimiko intends to develop the riverine areas of the state if elected.

The Labour Party candidate for Saturday’s governorship election in the state said this in Igbokoda, Ilaje Local Government Area, on Saturday.

In a statement by the Mimiko Campaign Organisation Director  of Media, Kolawole Olabisi,  on Sunday, the governor promised to build a seaport at Igbokoda to boost commerce and attract investors to the state.

Mimiko said his administration “had succeeded in bringing in a lot of foreign technical partners to invest in the proposed seaport”.

He said some of the   experts to partner with the state government in  the execution of the seaport had been shortlisted.

Mimiko said the riverine  areas were richly blessed and as a result his administration “would leverage on these vast resources to drive the state’s  economy if re-elected”.

He said, “This would bring about massive industrial development.”

He promised to continue to provide more social amenities for  the oil producing areas “to bring more development to them”.

The governor  commended the LP leaders in the area for ensuring that the members and supporters are not involved in illegal activities.

He promised that his administration would continue to promote peace among the Ijaw and Ilaje.
