The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of running Ondo from his private residence in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.
The PDP in Ondo made the allegation in a statement by the state publicity secretary, Kennedy Peretei, on Monday.
The party questioned why the governor has not been physically present in Ondo state since he returned from his three-month medical vacation in Germany.
The PDP said the continued stay of the governor outside Ondo showed that he was not yet fit to stand the stress of office and was “packaged back” to the country.
The statement reads in part: “Last week, we challenged the rationale for Akeredolu calling for a meeting in his Ibadan residence instead of Ondo State where he was elected to govern. Up till this moment, the governor has not been seen anywhere near Ondo State.
“Akeredolu is beginning to fuel media speculations that, against the advice of his doctors, he was hurriedly brought into Nigeria to foil an impeachment process. He also ordered an upgrade of his Ibadan residence to include a replica of the executive council chambers, from where he intends to hold exco meetings.
“Does Akeredolu want to make Ibadan the capital of Ondo State? What is the hurry to resume all about if he cannot come to Ondo State? Would it not have made more sense if he was still attending to his health abroad? Why did he say he had resumed when indeed he has not? Our party wishes to advise Akeredolu to come to Ondo State to complete his tenure.”
