Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu has mandated all his political appointees to ensure that they win their wards for Action Alliance (AA) at the expense of All Progressive Congress (APC) in the February 16 elections.
Akeredolu was earlier accused of releasing fund to all caretaker chairmen and supervisory councillors in Ondo State for the purpose of mobilizing support for Action Alliance. It is unbelievable that Governor Akeredolu could go to the extent of plotting the defeat of his party, APC in Ondo State by threatening to sack any political appointee who fails to win his or her ward for Action Alliance (AA).
We have always been raising alarm that Arakunrin Akeredolu has an agenda to ensure the defeat of APC in Ondo State. We had earlier alerted all members of APC when Akeredolu was about to release fund to all caretaker chairmen and supervisory councillors for the purpose of mobilizing support for Action Alliance. It is quite saddening that a governor that ought to be at the forefront of galvanising support for his party is regrettably the one plotting its failure.
The Director General of Buhari Campaign was right when he declared at the presidential rally held in Akure that victory may be elusive for APC in Ondo State if all concerned party members fail to work as a team. The latest move by Akeredolu seemed to have effectively justified the assertion of Rotimi Amaechi and the latest action is the height of anti-party activity that should be appropriately sanctioned by the national leadership of APC.
The height of anti-party activity is for Governor Akeredolu to have teamed up with a party that has already adopted the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. The governor cannot in clear conscience justify this action because it is quite inimical to the overall interest of APC.
Comrade Saheed Atunwa, Akure
