Ondo : PDP accuses APC of planning to attack LG secretariats

Peter Dada, Akure

Few days after the inauguration of Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu as the governor of Ondo State, the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has accused the All Progressives Congress of planning to sponsor thugs to the 18 local government secretariats in the state in order to cause confusion in the councils.

In a statement issued by the Director of Publicity of the PDP in the state, Mr. Ayo Fadaka on Sunday, the opposition party alleged that the APC planned to cause confusion at the council secretariats across the state in order to give room for closure of the secretariat and remove the chairmen.

Fadaka also alleged that the one week old of Akeredolu’s administration was inactive and docile, saying for the past one week the governor had not made any political appointment.

The statement read, ” We feel duty bound to let the general public know that rather than for the new government of Akeredolu to do a proper evaluation of issues that are germane to the development of the state, it is merely interested in the pursuance of ephemeral issues that will not advance the frontiers of good governance, but equally capable of causing a distrust within our society and also generate a crisis.

“The PDP wishes to declare that while it is ready to join hands with the new government in pursuance of programs that will promote developments within our state, we will however resist vigorously any plan or plot to undermine the people and institutions.”

However, the state deputy chairman of the APC, Mr. Ade Adetimehin denied the allegation. He described the allegation as baseless.

He said, “There was no such plan, all we are planning now is how we are going to move the state forward. We are law abiding, we don’t breed thugs. I don’t know where Fadaka heard that information from but all I know I’d that is not true, we don’t have any problem with council chairmen. “
