APC endorses Akeredolu’s ban on Tipper and Quarry owners

By: Ade Adeleke

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has expressed satisfaction with the ban on activities of Tipper and Quarry Owners’ Associations by the state government, describing it as timely and appropriate.

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu had on tuesday ordered the ban of the association’s activities for increasing price of sharp sand per load from #25,000 to #60,000.

According to a press statement signed by the party’s spokesman, Alex Kalejaye, APC says, “the party hails the decision, arguably taken in the interest of the masses.

“The party is deeply worried about the resolve of the association to increase the price of a tipper load of sand by 50 percent in a swoop! As a matter of fact, feelers from the majority of the stakeholders in the State show that the increase would cause excruciating effects on the different end users, including the struggling segment of the society.

“No responsive government would sit back and watch the citizens groan under oppressive decision, no matter the cover. The timely reaction of the government affirms the fact that this administration is roundly committed to the well-being of the citizenry.”

Tippers ban: Ondo APC backs State Government

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State views the ban on activities of Tipper and Quarry Owners’ Associations in the State by the government as timely and appropriate. The party hails the decision, arguably taken in the interest of the masses.

No responsive government would sit back and watch the citizens groan under oppressive decision, no matter the cover. The timely reaction of the government affirms the fact that this administration is roundly committed to the well-being of the citizenry.

It takes a government that listens to the yearnings of its people, and serves dispassionately to always be on their guard. An Electorate that entrusts mandate to a government deserves its protection.

The APC-led administration would explore all positive measures in its quest to ensure an economically buoyant State. Some of the efforts are already yielding fruits, while others are at advanced stages, from which individuals and organisations will benefit in the shortest possible time.

Ondo State APC appeals to various associations within the Sunshine State to show understanding, and do their best to avoid imposing hardship on the people. Every organisation is perceived to be a partner in the ongoing development stride of the government.
