The erstwhile governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko has described the administration of his successor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu as a total waste and disappointment to the people of Ondo State.
Mimiko, who is the national leader of Zenith Labour Party, said this during a campaign visit by the ZLP and its candidate in the October 10 Ondo State governorship election, Agboola Ajayi, to Ile-Oluji, the headquarters of the Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo Local Government Area on Saturday.
The former governor said, “There is no person that will say he has not performed. But how do we differentiate performance? Any government that has not democratized education is a bad government.
“This government that hiked school fees is a bad government. Akeredolu’s government is an enemy of the people.
“Anybody that votes for Akeredolu is selling his children’s future. Any government that does not make health free is your enemy.”
In his reaction, the spokesperson for the Akeredolu Campaign Organisation, Mr. Richard Olatunde, said, “It is unfortunate that a governor that sacked over 10,000 workers in Ondo state is calling the Akeredolu administration an anti-people government.”
He said “It is on record that Governor Akeredolu since he assumed office, has not sacked anyone in the state workforce either at the local or state level.
“Those lecturers that were sacked unjustly at the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic and Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko are still alive to bear witness to the anti-people government of Mimiko in this state.
