“The Ondo State governor is the first in the whole of South West to fully comply with the National Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) directives.
“These are laudable feats in governance and we hold ourselves as owing our dear Akeredolu a renewed pledge of allegiance and unalloyed loyalty.”
“In the not too distant past, our elections were usually marred by conflicts, at times with violent dimension or even records of fatality.
“The peace witnessed in this particular transition is made possible by the efforts of the national leadership and other stakeholders of the union who have decided to practice unionism in manners that are departures from what obtained in the past.
“However, more importantly and strategic to peaceful NULGE election during this time is the contribution of Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
“Unlike in the past, government interference in union politicking was not experienced during the last election into union elective offices.
“These granted local government workers the freedom to vote people of their choice into office without any fear of intimidation from high offices.
“This is unprecedented, and for this, we say thank you sir.”
