***Says Political jobbers should steer clear
The Ondo State government has said there is no division in the ranks of the cabinet members as being speculated by a section of online newspapers.
The state commissioner for information and orientation, Bamidele Ademola-Olateju said “the purported split in the Cabinet of the Ondo State Government is malicious toeing the same insidious path of perfidy already trodden by certain purveyors of speculatory hagiography designed to mislead unsuspecting members of the public.”
Re: Ondo Cabinet Splits Over Akeredolu’s Incapacitation
The attention of Ondo State Government has been drawn to a skewed report in an online newspaper, on the purported split in the Cabinet of the Ondo State Government. This malicious report toes the same insidious path of perfidy already trodden by certain purveyors of speculatory hagiography designed to mislead unsuspecting members of the public.
Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, CON, is not incapacitated. The finality with which the report concluded on his state of health is most unfortunate. Another online medium had peddled the wicked lie on the demise of the Governor in Germany, when he was resting in Ibadan.
The Cabinet cannot be “disunited” when directives emanate from the office of the Governor. There is no ambiguity in that respect. Members of the public are enjoined to disregard the wicked rumour of incapacitation.
We reiterate that the Governor has been discharging the functions of his office effectively. Governance is collective. The fixation on the governor is mischievous. There is no crisis in the State. Political jobbers should steer clear.
