Ondo 2020: Akeredolu replies Mimiko, says he is cleaning the mess he made

By Maria Ifafesobi
Ondo State, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has replied a former governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko who has called his government as anti-people.
Dr. Olusegun who is also the national leader of the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP, while campaigning for the Zenith Labour Party’s Candidate and the deputy governor of Ondo State, Mr. Agboola Ajayi, claimed that the Akeredolu led administration had failed the people of the state.
While reacting to this outburst, the Spokesperson of the Akeredolu/Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organization, Mr. Richard Olatunde said since the inception of Governor Akeredolu’s government it has been clearing the mess made by his predecessor, Dr. Mimiko.
Mr. Olatunde said, “It’s unfortunate that a Governor that sacked over 10,000 workers in Ondo state is calling the Akeredolu administration an anti-people government.
“It’s on record that Governor Akeredolu since inception in office has not sacked anyone in the state workforce either at the local or state level.
“Those lectures that were sacked unjustly at the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo and Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko are still alive to bear witness to the anti-people government of \Mimiko in this state.
“These workers were only reinstated by Governor Akeredolu. Because of Politics, Mimiko killed the Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa (OAUSTECH). What’s more anti-people than the actions of Mimiko in abandoning the various projects left behind by the late Olusegun Agagu?
“The Akeredolu administration came and realized Mimiko only has two mother and child hospitals in the whole of the state. Governor Akeredolu has now expanded from two to seven and they are now across the three Senatorial Districts of the state.
“As we speak, work is ongoing at the Teaching hospital both in Ondo and Akure. Arakunrin Akeredolu has introduced the Contributory health scheme which has also brought about free health care services for children under the age of five and pregnant women.
“So, on health, Governor Akeredolu has surpassed Mimiko in achievements, just as the Akeredolu administration has recorded significant stride in education and people’s welfare.
“Again, what’s more anti-people than Mimiko’s refusal to pay ONDO State workers seven months salary. The Akeredolu administration is still clearing the mess Mimiko left behind. Six out of the seven months unpaid Salary Mimiko left behind has been paid by Governor Akeredolu.
“The people of the state know that Mimiko has a cunning character. His penchant for treasury must not be taken as political sagacity. He’s a spent force,”.
