Ondo State Governor-elect, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu, on Sunday, January 1, gave the state civil servants and politicians a heads up on what is expected of them when he assumes power.

He said they should be ready to make sacrifices as his administration would work to make the state great again.

He stated this in his New Year message released by his media aide, Mr. Yemi Olowolabi.

Akeredolu promised to serve the people of Ondo to the best of his ability, adding that the new year will mark the beginning of new thinking and new actions in the state.

"We cannot be doing something the same way and expect a different result," he said.

He urged the people to back him as he puts in place a culture of integrity in public service, noting that the state has "stupendous natural endowments and abundant human resources waiting to be harnessed for the good of the state by selfless leadership."
