Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN has appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari for the role he played in the actualization of the Bitumen exploitation in the state.

The Governor who took to his twitter account to share the “Journey of Hope” of the Bitumen project said it’s understandable that a sustainable project takes time but a promise is a promised that must be fulfilled.

The Governor in another tweet appreciated President Buhari for his commitment to the project through the Presidential Economic Diversification Initiative which was launched in 2017.

In his tweets: “We understand that sustainable development takes time but a promise is a promise. When we say it, we always do it. #DevelopOndo.”

“I must also appreciate @MBuhari for his commitment to this project through the Presidential Economic Diversification Initiative which started around the beginning of my administration.”

Quite a number of people are on Facebook calling the bitumen project status a ploy to decieve. They ought to know that there is a fundamental difference between what we are seeing here and what we have seen in previous years; this time, *this company has a Mining Lease which is the first one ever granted in Nigeria for Mining Bitumen.*
