AKEREDOLU’S MISRULE IN ONDO STATE (6): MOVES TO BUY UP ALL LOCAL GOVERNMENT VEHICLES THROUGH PROXY

By Kennedy Ikantu Peretei

There is very little hope that, Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN can resist any opportunity to acquire properties (landed or otherwise) for himself and his immediate family.

Through a circular of the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, with Ref number CMG 8741/28 dated 17th November, 2021, the Governor approved the purchase of all unserviceable and obsolete assets in all the 18 Local government Areas by a faceless company that is acting as an agent for him.

The standard practice, is for each local government to get a certified auctioneer to profile such vehicles or assets and through a transparent process auction them. The proceeds paid into the coffers of the concerned Local Government. It is very unfortunate that, governance in the state is now at its lowest ebb where impunity is now the order of the day.

We advise, Mr. Governor to immediately order his agent to return to Ibadan and allow each Local Government to decide on what they wish to do with their assets.

This series will continue shortly.
