No room for corruption, Akeredolu warns caretaker chairmen
The Ondo State Governor, Mr Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, says his administration has zero tolerance for indiscipline and corruption.
Akeredolu made this known during the swearing-in ceremony of interim caretaker committee chairmen in the 18 local government councils of the state.
The governor, represented by his deputy, Mr Agboola Ajayi, warned the new appointees that his administration would not tolerate indiscipline or compromise on anything.
He appealed to the chairmen to carry out legitimate revenue drive to run the councils effectively.
“Your appointment is critical at this time of economic recession because the local government is the closest to the people. I enjoin you all to key into the cardinal points set up by this government to drive the administration.
“In the next two weeks, we will embark on massive construction of primary school buildings across the 18 local governments.
“Go to your councils and implement projects to touch the lives of the people; do your best.
“I advise you, the local government is the most sensitive, so you go there to promote yourself or ruin yourself,’’ the governor said.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Mr Gani Omoluka, the Owo Local Government Caretaker Committee Chairman, expressed his appreciation of the present administration.
He pledged to work hard to justify his position and work together with the people to move the local government forward.
NAN reports that an Ondo High Court in Akure had on Friday dissolved the executives of the 18 local government councils elected during the April 23, 2016 local government election.
