Olusegun Mimiko said Akeredolu’s administration is an anti-people.
News Rain reports that the former Governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko has accused the current State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu for running an anti-people government.
Ondo Election, Mimiko, Akeredolu.
Dr. Mimiko who described the Akeredolu’s led administration government in the State as an anti-people government said a vote for him will bring another hardship to the masses of the State for the next four years.
Mimiko made the disclosure on Saturday, at the campaign rally of the Zenith Labour Party guber candidate, Mr. Agboola Ajayi, in Ile – Oluji said that for the government to have canceled free healthcare services and also the introduction of the hike in tuitions fees of all state-owned tertiary institutions in the state means that Governor Akeredolu led an anti-people government.
Olusegun Mimiko who was two-term Governor of the State noted that the Akeredolu-led administration had failed the people of the state in all critical sectors affecting the well-being of the people.
He said, “This government that hiked school fee is a bad government. Akeredolu’s government is an enemy of the people. Anybody that votes Akeredolu is selling his children’s future.
“Any government that does not make health free is your enemy. Akeredolu’s government is an enemy of the people by canceling Mother and Child and free health for children.
“Any time they come here to campaign for votes, ask him, where are our shuttle buses? Where is our Abiye? The government that canceled Trauma Centre is your enemy.”
“There is no person that will say he has not performed. But how do we differentiate performance? Any government that has not democratized education is a bad government.
Akeredolu however, queried why the Akeredolu-led administration that canceled free health services, the Accident Emergency Scheme, which his administration established to reduce the number of deaths on express roads around the state, and free education in primary and secondary levels was seeking reelection.
Mimiko called on people of the state to vote out the anti-people government and vote for Agboola Ajayi and Gboye Adegbenro as Governor and Deputy governor on the platform of the ZLP.
Mr. Richard Olatunde who is the mouthpiece for Akeredolu Campaign Organization in his response to Mimiko’s claims said that the Akeredolu administration came and realized Mimiko only had two Mother and Child hospitals in the whole of the state. Governor Akeredolu has now expanded from two to seven and they are now across the three senatorial districts of the state.
