According to reports, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, yesterday said if elected his administration will bring a refinery to the state.
Akeredolu lamented that the state lost the Dangote Refinery Company to Lagos State, due to what he described as “lack of commitment” by the Olusegun Mimiko-led administration.
The APC governorship candidate spoke at an economic summit organised by the Sunshine Progressives Coalition (SPC) held at the Adegbemile Cultural Centre, Akure.
Akeredolu said he will drive economic and industrial revolution into the state through foreign investors with Federal Government partnership.
The lawyer, who lamented the absence of industries, noted that the state is in need of investments.
He also said the sunshine state, having the longest shore line and the deepest part of the sea in the country, deserves a sea port.
