End This 15 Yrs of Darkness in Ondo South, Group Appeals to Akeredolu. A group, Congress for Rights of Ondo Southern Nationalities (CROSN), has appealed to the state governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, to rescue the southern-most part of the state from utter darkness it had been plunged into 15 years ago. The group made the appeal at the end of its meeting in Akure. In a communique signed by its National President, Abiodun Fanoro and Secretary, Tunde Aiyenumelo, the group also commended Akeredolu for appointing a woman and an indigene of Ondo South, Mrs. Oladunni Odu, as the new Secretary to the State Government (SSG). It urged the governor to deeply reflect on the socio-economic implication of utter darkness in Okitipupa, Ilaje, Irele and Ese-Odo local councils for over 15 years, lamenting that keeping over one million people in darkness for this long certainly negates the lofty and good rural and urban development programme of government to discourage migration to the cities. The group implored Akeredolu to break the jinx and record of restoring electricity to the three major ethnic-nations in the state made up of the Ikale, Ilaje and the Ijaw in four vast local councils. CROSN said that the appointment of a woman as the SSG clearly showed that Akeredolu was a promoter of gender equality, urging him to further reflect this as he continued with the task of constituting the cabinet.
