The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has asked the immediate past Governor of the State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the State to keep their mouth shut and sealed, while they watch and learn from the Akeredolu led-government in the state. Contrary to what played out during the last administration, APC/Akeredolu’s is poised to steer the State’s affairs in the right direction and also deliver the true dividend of democracy to the good people of Ondo state.
In a statement by the APC Publicist, Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, on Wednesday said, “The leadership of PDP at all levels should be ashamed of themselves, most especially in Ondo State. Mimiko/PDP ruled Ondo State for eight (8) years with impunity and corruption, leaving behind a whooping debt profile of about N150 billion, eight (8) months unpaid salaries of workers and several months of unpaid allowances and gratuity of pensioners. What morals justification has Ondo-PDP leadership and Mimiko to advise APC/Akeredolu’s government?”
“We viewed your advice as anti- developmental, and evil against the people of the State. It’s a clear attempt to derail our government so as to create bottleneck and distraction for Akeredolu. The former government has no useful ingredient at its disposal to compliment this current administration”.
Adesanya appealed to the people of the State to remain calm, patient and hopeful, as APC/Akeredolu fulfill all electoral promises. This government will keep to prompt payment of workers’ salary, jobs creation through industrialization and agricultural evolution, peace and stability, and creation of Local Government Council Development Areas (LCDA) in the state, the statement reads.
