I'll work against the re-election of Akeredolu, Ex SSG
Mr Sunday Abegunde, the former Secretary to the Ondo State Government has said that he will work against the re-election of Akeredolu.
It can be recalled that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, appointed Mr Tayo Oluwatuyi, as replacement few hours after the resignation of Mr Sunday Abegunde, as the SSG to the Ondo State Government.
Oluwatuyi was announced by Akeredolu at the weekly media briefing in Akure, the state capital on Monday.
Mr Sunday was said to have resigned through a letter which read in part,
“I, Hon. Ifedayo Sunday Abegunde, the Secretary to the State Government of Ondo State hereby tender my letter of resignation.
I want to thank Mr Governor for giving me the opportunity to serve the Government and people of Ondo State.”
He later granted an interview in Yoruba language on Crest FM, during which he said he resigned from office because of the ill-treatment meted out to him by the governor.
“I suffered in his (Akeredolu) administration because he didn’t release any fund to my office. He has been telling lies that he was giving me N5m every month even when he knew he didn’t give me such money.
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.”
