Activist and and the leader of the convener of Revolution Now, Comrade Omoyele Sowore has described the Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, as the most expensive ghost worker in the history of the Country. 

Mr Sowore who made the statement in Akure, the Ondo State Capital on Saturday while addressing the ‘resign or resume’ protesters at the Akure Town Hall noted that a group of persons in government had held the people of Ondo State hostage for over one year following the leadership crisis in the Sunshine State. 

He accused the Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for squandering a whopping sum of over N7.9 billion on Security Votes in the State. 

“Akeredolu has become a ghost worker in Ondo State. By the way, he is the most expensive ghost worker in Nigeria’s history. Someone who did not come to work but squandered over N7.9 billion on Security Votes,” he said.

 “our plan was to have a town hall meeting at the Akure Town Hall and shutdown Ondo State until they do the right thing. Like our Sister, Yemi Adamolekun also said, we have tolerated these nonsense for too long in Ondo State”.

 He chided the people of Ondo State, whom people used to invoke the Ondo State name to fight against suppression for not standing up on time for what is right in the State. 

“When oppressor now became the Governor of Ondo State, Ondo State people could not talk,” he said.

He said as himself and his ‘Revolutionary Movement’ were planning to rap up and come down to Ondo State, they received many threats targeting at scaring them from coming. 

 “I told my people, we will intervene and we gave them one week to do so. This crisis. This crisis in Ondo State has been going on for more than one year. All the political parties could not solve the problem. We decided that we will intervene and within one week, everybody was able to arrange themselves in their proper order,” he said.

“The person who has been claiming of being in government, suddenly wants to go back to the hospital. And we asked them, if you are writing another letter that you are going on another medical leave, did you come back from the last medical leave? Akeredolu did not come to Akure since September.

“We want to tell the guy in Abuja, their senior brother, Tinubu. I don’t know why he will seat down in Abuja and wants to tell the people of Ondo State what to do.

“Ondo State is different from Lagos. Ondo State is different from the nonsense that brought them to power. 

“I don’t know why Tinubu is always comfortable with forgery. How can you as President accept the forgery of the signature of a Governor even after they claim they have resolved the problem. He still asked them to go and forge another letter. Ask any member of the House of Assembly to show you the copy of the letter they said Akeredolu wrote again. They cannot find it because there was no letter. 

Ondo State people must stand up. People have asked me. Maybe Sowore wants to become the Governor of Ondo State. I told them Ondo State is too small for me to cover. We have people who can govern Ondo State better than Akeredolu. And they will contest in the next election but that is not what we are here for.

“In fact, Nigeria is too small for us to govern. We want to govern the continent of Africa. That is our ambition and our desire and our goal.

“We want to unite Africa and govern it as one entity. So, I am not here to become the Ondo State Governor.

“I want to also say, that, it is a shame that all the professionals in Ondo State, lawyers, Doctors, including the House of Assembly, all of them were scared when we want to come for this meeting.”
