Youths in Ondo under the aegis of Future Leaders for Change In Ondo have appealed to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to rescue the state from what they termed ‘the misrule, directionless and misgovernance of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’.
The youths in a statement signed by its leader, Gideon Akindola, and made available to Daily Independent, alleged that the governor has totally abandoned governance in the state just as there was nothing on ground to show for his two years in office.
According to the group, the governor has abandoned the rising number of unemployed youths in the state for involvement in intra and inter-party politics.
“We are appealing to our leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to get involved in the next governorship election in Ondo state. To say we are sick and tired of Governor Akeredolu’s misrule is an understatement. There is nothing to show for his two years in office while he has reversed the little gains recorded by the Olusegun Mimiko administration.
“We know Asiwaju is passionate about the developments of the South-West states and we don’t want our dear state, Ondo, to be left behind. We will not back Governor Akeredolu’s second term and we are confident that he too may not seek reelection because there is nothing on ground to campaign with.
“Now, we know the reason why Asiwaju Tinubu decided not to support him in 2016. We will support whomever Tinubu supports this time around and we plead with him not to abandon us to our fate. He should as a matter of urgency deliver us from Akeredolu,” the statement said.
