The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state, has congratulated the State governor Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on his conferment with the Doctor of Laws (Honorary Causa) by the management of Ajayi Crowther University.
The Ondo APC,under the chairmanship of Engr. Ade Adetimehim, described the honour as a recognition of Akeredolu’s selfless contributions to the development of jurisprudence in Nigeria, enhancement of human rights, and his avowed commitment to good governance.
In a Press release issued by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Alex Kalejaiye and made available to newsmen, the award was said to be ‘long overdue’.
The statement reads: “We are however, grateful to the management of Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo, Oyo State, for spotting the vital gap for appropriate decision.
“The party congratulates Mr. Governor, the Government of Ondo State, the Nigerian Bar Association and the informed people of Ondo State on the well deserved honour.
“In a society where political leaders seek attention and curry recognition, the legal giant’s preoccupation is to work for the betterment of humanity and posterity. He neither craves accolades nor seeks commendations.
“The massive investments of the Ondo State Government, particularly in roads and bridges, industrial expansion, health and agriculture under the leadership of Dr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, in less than five years, is unbeatable anywhere in the country.
“The State Chapter of the APC is convinced that the enviable recognition will spur Mr. Governor to further amplify his campaign for justice, fairness, equity, and selfless service in the public sphere”.
