Mimiko, Akeredolu fight over 30,000 job plan
THE candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, in the October 20 governorship election in Ondo State, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, was, Wednesday, accused of surreptitiously trying to raise funds for his campaign activities through the phantom offer of 30,000 jobs.
The Mimiko Campaign Organisation which made this assertion, described Akeredolu‘s offer of 30,000 jobs within the first 100 days in office, if elected, as not only a sweeping statement, but a Greek gift meant to raise funds for his campaign from unsuspecting people of the state who are now being asked to collect registration forms at the rate of N1,000 each.
Reacting, the Akeredolu Campaign Organisation, ACO, through its Director of Media, Publicity and Strategy, Mr. Idowu Ajanaku, described the allegation by the Labour Party, LP, as not only untrue, one that only exists in the figment of the party’s imagination.
Ajanaku said: “Akeredolu does not need to collect N1,000 from the already-impoverished youths of Ondo State under the Mimiko government, because he has received support from Ondo State indigines worldwide.
“Moreso all the leaders of ACN are solidly behind him, he does not need to raise fund for his campaign using dubious means.
“The Mimiko-led administration lacks ideas and have no capacity to comprehend how ACN will make true its promises. We have always said that job provisions is not rock science and we will put smiles on the faces of the people of Ondo State.
The Mimiko Campaign Organisation, in a statement by its Director of Publicity and Media Relations, Mr. Kolawole Olabisi, had lashed at Akeredolu for playing to the gallery and for attempting to hoodwink the people of the state over what he knew was mere puff and invitation to threat.
“ For a close watcher of unfolding events in Ondo State in the last couple of months, it is crystal clear that mischief is afoot by the ACN flag bearer.
“First, it is obvious that he never realised the enormity of the position for which he sought to contest and this is clear from the fact that up till the last moment, he couldn’t even perfect his nomination papers. And when it dawned on him that this was not a child’s play, he decided to play a fast one on the unsuspecting people of the State to raise funds for his campaign under veiled guise.
“Pray, we want to ask Akeredolu that rather make a generalized statement, he should tell the people of Ondo State the following: the job description and the manning requirements for each position he intends to fill? The categories of the officers to be recruited as contained in the budget and or the schemes of service for such position?”
