Akeredolu Didn’t Win 2016 Election, We Rigged Him Into Power – Former SSG by FlordFlorez(m): 11:31pm On Jul 06, 2020
The former Secretary to Ondo State Government, SSG, Ifedayo Abegunde has disclosed that his erstwhile principal, Rotimi Akeredolu, lost the 2016 governorship election to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Eyitayo Jegede. According to him, it was through his power and that of some other APC pillars that made INEC to declare Akeredolu as governor after he had lost.

“Akeredolu didn’t win the election in 2016 but we made it possible for him to become governor. We were the pillars behind him and we will not support him again. He will lose this time around.”

Abegunde further alleged that only the immediate family of the governor, as well as his in-laws from Imo State, are enjoying governance in the state.
Akeredolu has reduced the government to the property of his wife, son and in-laws from Imo state. All the contracts in the state are being given to his wife, son and the people from Imo state.”

The former SSG, who spoke in Akure, the Ondo State capital shortly after his resignation, described as enormous the sufferings he underwent in the hands of Governor Akeredolu for the three and half years, he held sway as the Secretary to his government.
Abegunde said, “I was suffering in his (Akeredolu) administration because he didn’t release any funds for my office. He has been telling lies that he was giving me N5 million every month even when he knew he didn’t give me such money.”
Abegunde who represented Akure North/South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives between 2011 to 2015 disclosed that the ill-treatment melted on him by Akeredolu made him to quit.

While speaking on his next political journey, the former SSG, however, disclosed that he has decided to support another aspirant from the APC, Mr. Segun Abraham, whom he described as the ‘Messiah’ that Ondo State needs.

This man is a crook, his main problem is because the governor is free to allow his wife's tribes to have contracts and positions in the government.
What is wrong if the governor's in-laws are holding few positions or having contracts in the state?

Tribalistic human being he is.

People are now openly saying they rigged election and EFCC, DSS, Police and other security agents are not going after them. Tony Kabaka openly said they rigged election in Edo State and now, this one.
Nigerians are not equal.
You stayed in government for almost 4years, you are claiming you were enduring when your bank accounts and influence were increasing. Why did you not resign at the beginning of the administration? Almost all politicians are going there for their pockets.

Really?
Africa is the way it is because we are so tribalistic. We prefer our tribesmen over competent outsiders.

yeye people, had it been the governor was awarding contracts to you, you wouldn't have resigned. Nigeria politics is all about selfish and pocket interest.

I’m from Imo and perhaps tribalism plays a role here but giving in-laws contracts suggests the bidding and awarding of contracts are free and fair. Likely the in-laws lack expertise and their companies only exist on paper. The SSG is clearly bitter because he isn’t chopping. He doesn’t care about the citizens. That’s why he rigged in the first place.

He is a thief. Who has not benefited from the loot.

He should just go and kill himself.

I love Akeredolu but if is true that people of IMO state are benefitting what a Yoruba in Ondo state should be benefitting then I denounce my support for his reelection


this doesn't exonerate the SSG, in a sane society, this statement he just made is enough to put him behind the bar, that was a careless and overzealous political statement

It can only happen in Nigeria. Daft people coming out to boast of committing a punishable offense and some will still celebrate them. In a sane clime, this one is a goner already and will provide his co-pillars/riggers. Imagine the thief , he’s the ssg yet he wants to have the state’s treasury in his pocket. Why not tell them to change the name of the state to your family name. Buffoon.
