Celebrating the Journey, Stewardship, and Impact of Ondo State Deputy Speaker, Akinruntan

Leadership is best measured by the positive impact it has on the lives of people. In his first year as the Deputy Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Abayomi Akinruntan has embodied this ideal through his unwavering commitment to his constituents and the entire Ondo State populace. His tenure has been marked by significant achievements, characterized by empathy, dedication, and a relentless drive to uplift his community.

From the outset of his legislative engagement in the 10th Assembly, Akinruntan has prioritized the welfare of his constituents. He has implemented various people-centered policies, projects, and programs that reflect his genuine concern for the well-being of the citizens. Some of these initiatives include:

  • Facilitating the provision of tuition fees for indigent students
  • Securing university admissions for deserving candidates
  • Providing palliatives for the aged, widows, physically challenged, and other vulnerable groups
  • Empowering youth through skill acquisition and entrepreneurship programs
  • Supporting small-scale businesses with financial assistance and mentorship

Akinruntan’s legislative influence has also led to the employment of many constituents in governmental agencies and parastatals, such as ODIRS, Amotekun, and various sectors including teaching and health. These efforts have not only improved the living standards of his people but have also earned him widespread acclaim.

In his legislative role, Akinruntan has been a vocal advocate for the needs and aspirations of his constituents. His contributions to the creation of Ilaje Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) during the 9th and 10th Assemblies are a testament to his commitment. Furthermore, his role in ensuring the smooth screening and confirmation of government nominees from Ilaje and Ondo South highlights his dedication to fair representation.

Akinruntan’s integrity and transparency are reflected in his leadership style. As the Chairman of the House Committee on Cash Allocation, he has demonstrated honesty and a strong work ethic. His efforts to maintain peace and stability in Ugbo Kingdom, an oil-producing region, have been crucial in making Ondo State one of the most peaceful areas in the Niger-Delta region.

As he marks a year in office, Akinruntan continues to deliver on his promises. Recently, he commenced the distribution of classroom furniture and initiated the construction of a 1000-meter walkway in Erunna community. These projects, facilitated under the Nigeria COVID-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus (NG-CARES) program, underscore his commitment to infrastructural development and educational support.

Looking ahead, Akinruntan assures his constituents of more developmental projects and financial support schemes for small-scale businesses. His dedication to bringing the dividends of democracy to his people remains steadfast, and his actions over the past year have laid a strong foundation for future progress.

As we reflect on Rt. Hon. Abayomi Akinruntan’s first year in office, it is clear that his leadership has made a significant impact. His unwavering commitment, empathy, and proactive approach have brought about positive change and hope for a brighter future in Ondo State.
