The Vanguard Newspaper has presented a nomination letter to the Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for the award of the Governor of the Year 2019.
The Deputy Editor of the Newspaper, Mr. Adekunle Adekoya who led other members of Staff of the Newspaper to the Governor’s Office, Alagbaka, Akure, said the Board of Editors of the establishment sat and examined the performance of the Governor for the award.
According to him, the Newspaper found that despite dwindling allocation and scarce resources, the Governor has been able to spread developmental projects across the three senatorial districts of the state.
Adekoya said:”We are here to formally present a letter nominating the governor for the Award of Governor of the Year 2019. We didn’t pull this out of the air. It’s an annual program of Vanguard Newspaper where the Board of Editors start examining the performances of key public figures and players in the private sector.
Responding, Governor Akeredolu thanked the Newspaper for taking time see the work his administration has done and also deem it fit to honour him with an award.
Arakunrin Akeredolu said:”When I got to know about this I was surprised. My team at the ministry of Information told me that there are some of your representatives that have gone round to assess our work. I knew from there that this is a serious thing. So many people bring letter for award that I reject them but I know Vanguard is a very serious publication.
