The Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko has said his government had set the state on an irreversible path, which has turned it to cynosure of all eyes within seven years.
The governor said through the efforts of his administration in the state, the state had now become the reference point for good governance across the country.
Mimiko spoke at the 84th edition of the monthly praise thanksgiving programme tagged “Divine Agenda”, held at the International Events Centre in Akure, the state capital during the weekend.
While speaking on the achievements of his administration in the last seven years, Mimiko said his government had performed excellently in the health sector, Agriculture, Urban renewal programme and particularly the ‘Abiye’ initiative, which had helped in reducing maternal mortality by seventy percent.
According to the governor, “we got an information that one of us went to Togo for an International conference and delivered a paper on our safe motherhood programme and they said we will receive visitors from the whole of Africa very soon.
“At that conference, everybody said they would come to Ondo State to learn the trick of maternal death reduction.
“It is just amazing, when you look back seven years up, we’ve reduced maternal death more than seventy percent, this is a verifiable data.
