The All Progressives Congress (APC), in Ondo State is happy with the efforts of the State Government for exploring ways to reduce wastage in governance.
The chapter is specifically appreciative of the mass refurbishment of government vehicles that had been abandoned by previous administrations.
“The uncommon initiative, with which the State has been able to recondition and bring alive more vehicles, and save so much money that could be expended on other sectors clamouring for attention”, the party said.
A statement by the party’s State Publicity Secretary, Mr. Alex Kalejaye said, “The array of cars, refurbished with warranty, and commissioned are products of ingenuity.
“The current administration inherited a state that was hugely indebted. The usual practice of placing orders for new vehicles would have further plunged the State deeper into debt.”
The party urged drivers and other users of the vehicles to share the view of the governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, by ensuring good maintenance attitude.
The State chapter appealed to the governor to apply the savings culture in other departments of government to further enhance efficiency to the benefit of all.
Kalejaye said the economic reality in the country “compels the necessity for governments at all levels to look inward and make the best of what is available.”
The party opined that other state governments should cultivate the culture of renewing items and working tools that could still be put to productive uses.
