The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo State has given
Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu a three-day ultimatum to either resume at the
Governor’s Office in Akure, or resign.
The youth wing of the party issued the ultimatum on Monday
at the party’s secretariat in Akure, Ondo State capital, while protesting the
continued absence of the governor.
Earlier, a team of security operatives comprising men of the
Police, Department of State Services, DSS, and National Security and Civil
Defense Corps, NSCDC, had cordoned off the PDP secretariat to prevent the
protest from holding.
Akeredolu has not been seen in the state since his return
from medical leave in Germany over four weeks ago.
According to one of the PDP youth leaders, Tayo Oluyi, the
state can no longer bear what he described as ‘leadership vacuum’.
Oluyi said, “We are saying Mr Governor must resume back to
duty. He can no longer govern us by proxy, we can no longer be hearing that
he’s one thing or the other when we’ve not sighted him.
“We know the governor we have, if he’s truly fit, we would
have sighted him in the streets of Akure.
“The youth wing of the party is giving Mr Governor the next
24 hours to address the people of Ondo State and we are giving him three days
ultimatum to resume back to the state.
“We are giving him three days ultimatum to address us and if
he fails, we as the opposition party will occupy the streets of Akure and we
will continue to demand that he either resume or resign.”
