PDP Urges Akeredolu to Hand Over Power Amidst Health Concerns   


In a press conference held at the PDP secretariat in Akure on Tuesday, Mr Fatai Adams, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, fervently called on Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to transfer authority to his Deputy, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa. This appeal, Adams emphasized, is crucial to prevent any further deterioration in the state’s governance.

While expressing the party’s well wishes for the governor’s recovery, Adams stressed the paramount importance of the collective well-being of the state’s populace.

Drawing a parallel to Akeredolu’s past advice to the late President Umar Yar’Adua, Adams urged the governor to prioritize the interest of the state and follow suit by transmitting power to Aiyedatiwa.

“The business of administering the state is not a tea party or a picnic; it demands every attention that can be mustered. 

“Much as we know, our governor is sick or at best, recuperating; thus he remains missing in action and our state deserves every attention. This is why the constitution has made provision for a period like this,” he said.

Adams expressed deep concern over the escalating level of impunity in the state during Akeredolu’s absence, emphasizing that the people strongly oppose and reject such developments.

“We also note the total indiscipline and rudeness of some members of the State Executive Council to the office of the Deputy Governor. 

“This merely indicates that the Akeredolu administration is rudderless, not cohesive and bereft of the required legitimacy to remain atop of the affairs of government any longer. 

“We urge Akeredolu to have a sense of history. He must care enough about what history will record about him. 

Truly, he is the governor but the health of the state cannot be dragged with him to his sick bed. Posterity will not take kindly to this mean and shortsighted attitude,” he said.

Adams claimed that a puzzling and unexplained spending pattern prevailed in the state, insisting on obtaining the state’s financial balance sheet.

”PDP is more committed to discharging its responsibilities to the people and will take cogent actions to expose the many underhand actions devised to fleece the state of its money, assets and resources. 

” In a short while, we will prepare and release to the public a compendium of illegal and illicit actions taken by functionaries of government to compromise our financial health and other sundry unpatriotic actions geared toward compromising the wellness of our future,” he said.

Issuing a stern warning to his APC counterpart, Adams cautioned against making disparaging remarks about the PDP, asserting that any such statements would be met with responses of equal measure.
