Governor Akeredolu Warns Cabinet Against Taking New Wife

Akeredolu has warned cabinet against taking new wives as state debt weighs Ondo down

“The picture is not good. Therefore, all acts with the potential of pushing us deeper into economic crisis must be jettisoned. We earnestly promise to provide the needed leadership,” he said.

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu said his administration faces staggering debt it met at inception, totaling N220.5 billion but will have to borrow more so as to meet public aspiration.

“The picture is not good. Therefore, all acts with the potential of pushing us deeper into economic crisis must be jettisoned. We earnestly promise to provide the needed leadership,” he said.

The governor spoke at the inauguration of newly appointed 18 commissioners and 10 special advisers warned that the government will not tolerate any frivolities.

Akeredolu warned the appointees not to go and take new wives because of their position saying they must all gird their loins for the great task ahead.

“If development is about the people, all decisions and actions must be for the realisation of this lofty objective. Any opportunity offered for service must be understood in this context. Nobody must consider his/her choice, out of numerous other equally eminent candidates, as an invitation to primitive self-aggrandisement. This Administration will NOT permit it. Any conduct which seeks to perpetuate the misery of the people will be discouraged actively.”
