The Olubaka of Oka Kingdom, Oba Yusuf Adebori Adeleye has commended Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, SAN, for embarking on infrastructural development in Iwaro Oke/Oke/Oka Road of the state.
Receiving the governor, who came to inspect some roads and commission some projects at Oka Akoko recently, Oba Adeleye said the project was a life-saving one for those plying the road on a daily basis.
