Why Gov Akeredolu is working from Ibadan – Ondo Govt


Doyin Odebowale, the Special Adviser on Special Duty and
Strategy to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, has said that his
principal is not working from the capital, Akure, due to accommodation


Odebowale said this in an interview with Channels Television
on Tuesday.


Akeredolu has been absent from the state since his return
from a medical vacation abroad.


The Ondo leader has been working from Ibadan, Oyo State and
the move has caused ripples within the state, with the youths of the opposition
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday, issuing an ultimatum to the governor
to return.


Odebowale said due to Governor Akeredolu‘s state of health,
he needed a better apartment to carry out his task of marshalling the affairs
of the South-West state.


“Aketi came back in September. Where he used to stay – the
Presidential Lodge built for the visiting president at that time Olusegun
Obasanjo – is a two-bedroom apartment,” he said on the show.


“Now, he is back. He cannot occupy that place again. The Old
Governor’s Office – the Governor’s Lodge built by the previous administration
is now the office of the investment outlet called the ODIPA. That’s the
office,” the governor’s aide added.


“So, the governor has been managing a two-bedroom apartment
for six years. But his current state of health would not permit him to pretend
that all is well.


“He would need all the things for him to recover properly.
That’s why the new place that is being arranged for him is almost completed.


“When they say they want to see Aketi, do they want to see
him at the site so that he would be carrying cement or following workmen?


“What exactly? The civil servants have been paid all their
salaries. Aketi has been signing laws since he came back,” he maintained.
