PDP Accuses Akeredolu Of "Abuse Of Office" Over Son’s Appointment by blamingthedevil: 6:40pm On Nov 17, 2021
The People Democratic Party, Ondo State chapter, has accused the state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu of abuse of office over his son, Babjide’s appointment as Director-General of a government agency.

On Tuesday, Babajide Akeredolu was appointed as the DG of Ondo State Performance and Project Implementation Monitoring Unit, drawing mixed reactions from different quarters.

According to a statement issued on Wednesday, the Ondo State PDP spokesperson, Kennedy Peretei, accused the governor of using state funds to ‘procure’ a marriage for Babajide.

He argued that the appointment was not only an abuse of office but was also not in the interest of the state.

The statement reads in part, “The recent appointment of Babajide Akeredolu, a biological son of Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN as the Director-General of Performance and Project Implementation Monitoring Unit (PPMIU) is a flagrant abuse of office and affront on the people of Ondo State,”

“The name Babajide Akeredolu became known in Ondo state when the State’s funds were used to procure a marriage for him in Colorado, USA, after the same marriage was consummated in Owo, his father’s birthplace. He has since assumed authority as part of the triad of the reign of father, wife and son.

“The appointment as DG of PPMIU for Babajide, a young man who carries on as though, he was the person voted for as Governor is part of the grand design to finally empty the treasury of the State before Akeredolu returns to Ibadan.”

The PDP also stated that the governor and his family had no empathy for the people of the state but were only focused on living lavishly off state funds.

Peretei, however, warned the Akeredolus that their alleged lavish spending would soon come to an end and they would be made to account for it.

“It thus appears that Mr Governor and his immediate family are bent on living fat on the lean resources of the people, when poverty has taken over the land, walking in all four legs.

“There is no further proof of Akeredolu’s insensitivity to the plight of the people, when within two years of tenure, he organized three lavish weddings for his children, all in foreign lands – In Mauritius, Canada, and Colorado, USA.

“It is very apparent that it is the greed of the first family that is being fed, no longer their needs. Akeredolu, his wife and children must appreciate that the resources they are wasting in this reckless manner was only given to them in trust for the people. They should remember that the day of reckoning is very near,” PDP warned.

It's well even inside well. I'm not against the appointment oh, but will it benefit the state??

If I'm in government and I feel I can trust my son do deliver and help me achieve more in governance, I'll bring him on board

But

If this is an avenue to lavish state fund, .....
Let me hold it there

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria(SAN), for that matter. It seems when people gets to office/power in Nigeria, they became so drunk, careless, and extremely foolish.

Wait ooo

Because say his father is the governor, he's excluded by law from anything ondo citizens are entitled to?

Such agency that has to do with implementation, you need someone you can trust.

I think morality guide is what we're looking at, instead of the legality of the issue.

On moral ground, you can ask; na only them? On law, he's not committed any infraction.

I don’t see why he can’t appoint his son if he feels he can do the job

If my father was the governor, I will definitely be gunning for an appointment

Akeredolu has nothing to offer Ondo State. He is proud, stubborn and bereft of ideas to move the state forward.

This is a man who went on air to ask if doctors have two heads for asking for their unpaid salaries and he stopped paying their salaries altogether when they went on strike.

He has hijacked the state treasury for the enjoyment of his family. This is clearly a wicked person and history will be unkind to him.

It isn't abuse of office.

What you should do is to request the son's qualifications as see if it matches the post.

Trump appointed his son in-law and daughter into positions within the White House.

If it could happen in the base of democracy, then it isn't bad governance.

Read about the Kennedys and the Bush's, they all facilitated appointment and election of sons and brothers.

The most important thing is about qualification.

Is the son qualified? That should be the question.
Nigerians uses emotions for everything at the expense of logical reasoning. So because my father is a governor, I shouldn't work?
