The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, Has Come Under Criticism From The Opposition Over The Distribution Of 2020 Model SUV KIA Sportage To Members Of The State House Of Assembly As Official Vehicles.
The Governor representative had reserved about N1.18billion in the 2020 financial plan for the acquisition of vehicles for the House of Assembly.
The vehicles introduced to the initiative of the house on Friday, a day to the official banner off of the governorship mission of the All Progressives Congress, with the resistance charging that the consumption was intended to score a political point.

Seven individuals from the house who baffled the prosecution move against the agent lead representative, Agboola Ajayi, passed up a major opportunity of the vehicle appropriation.
Introducing the vehicles to the state officials at the Government House in Akure, Mr Akeredolu said his organization had stayed faithful to its obligation of giving the vehicles in spite of the lessening assets of the state.
“What is important to me is that when we make guarantees we keep them. It isn’t for political reasons. We have been on this vehicle issue for some time and fortunately, it came today not long before the banner off. No one is doing it for political explanation. This is an enhancement for what we had last,” the lead representative clarified.
Reacting for the benefit of his associates, the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Bamidele Oloyelogun, expressed gratitude toward the lead representative for being a dedicated worker pioneer.
He reviewed that it was the second time Governor Akeredolu would introduce individuals from the Ondo State House of Assembly with legitimate vehicles in three and a half years.
The first run through was in December 2018, when he introduced official vehicles to individuals from the eighth get together who were chosen during the organization of previous Governor Olusegun Mimiko.
However, the Peoples Democratic Party portrayed the vehicle blessings as a misuse of assets.
The gathering’s representative, Kennedy Peretei, in an announcement said the lead representative frantic to appease the state officials.
The PDP asserted that the administration obtained more than 50 vehicles for appropriation in front of the anticipated governorship political race.
“At the function where officials got these Greek blessings, Akeredolu commented that the circumstance for giving them these vehicles has no political feeling. For what reason did he need to hold up till since political decision is around the bend to give these vehicles?” the gathering questioned.
“A year ago, the Ondo State House of Assembly deferred for over five weeks in view of a hazardous python that dropped from the roof of the Chambers of the Assembly during whole meeting.
“The lead representative and the administrators exchanged allegations of disregard and government assistance of individuals and the Assembly Complex that held reptiles.
It is in this way dubious for the lead representative to unexpectedly show care and consideration for the administrators among whom he was unable to tie down the unavoidably expected number to denounce his antagonized appointee, Mr Agboola Ajayi.
“The equivalent is valid for conventional rulers that Akeredolu had demonstrated incredible lack of respect since he was confirmed as Governor of Ondo State.
“The Akeredolu-drove APC government has exhibited obtuseness toward the situation of the Ondo State individuals by this signal.
“Only 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari expanded the siphon cost of petroleum from N143 to N161 per liter and a 150% expansion in Electricity utilization per Kwh. The best Akeredolu could do is to utilize citizens’ cash to prompt the political class to curry their courtesy. The move is vexatious and sums to including salt injury.”
Likewise, the delegate lead representative, Mr Ajayi, reprimanded the introduction of the vehicles to the prohibition of seven individuals.
