Akeredolu never won 2016 election but we made him governor – Ex-Ondo SSG
The immediate-past Secretary to the Ondo State Government, Sunday Abegunde has claimed that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu did not win the 2016 gubernatorial polls in the state.
Abegunde said Akeredolu was helped to power by some persons including himself.
The ex-SSG, who resigned his position today, laid the allegations during an interview in Yoruba language on Crest FM, Akure shortly after turning in his resignation.
He said Akeredolu maltreated him for the three and half years they worked together.
Abegunde said, “I suffered in his (Akeredolu) administration because he didn’t release any fund for my office grants. He has been telling lies that he was giving me N5m every month even when he knew he didn’t give me such money.
“Where on Earth did the governor give me such funds? Recently, I reported him to Governor Fayemi of Ekiti State and he promised to invite both of us to Abuja for settlement. I remember that I told Fayemi that I was going to spit on the face of Akeredolu if he repeated the lie that he was giving me N5m monthly if we meet face to face, and I would then return to Akure to resign and as well Inform the public of his looting sprees.
“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.”
He said he resigned his appointment as he no longer wanted to be part of an administration inflicting pains on residents of the state.
