Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has advised the management of a private radio station, Adaba 88.9 FM, in Akure, to ask their ‘oga’ (boss) to construct the road that leads to the station.
The station is a subsidiary of TVC Communications owned Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor spoke at the dinner and award night to mark the station’s 10th anniversary, held at Bash Event Centre, Akure, on Friday.
Sahara Reporters quoted him as saying: “The moment everybody sees Television Continental (TVC) and Adaba FM, they all know who the parents are, but I will not say more than that.
“So, if we have these two big organisations and we all know who their parents are, it could be a form of Corporate Social Responsibility if they can help them build their road.
“We are not seeing much here in Ondo State, but a lot is being done in many places. The road to TVC in Lagos was built by him. So, you can help us tell your Oga that this road is not too long for him to do in Ondo State. Or am I lying? No. It is not too long for him to construct.
“It would not even take weeks to complete it, because they have all the machinery in Lagos to do it and they will make the road a better one. So, what we can do, we would do; what we cannot do, we would not do. We have a lot of challenges.”
Akeredolu, however, commended the radio station for its contribution to the state.
“Adaba was a child of circumstance and from what we know, it has been a voice for the voiceless in the state. Adaba FM birthed what I would call private radio ownership in the state, because I heard it is the first privately-owned radio station in Ondo State,” he said.
