Senior Pastor of Awaiting the Second Coming of Jesus Christ Gospel Church, Akure, Ondo State, Adewale Giwa has accused the wife of the state governor, Mrs. Betty Akeredolu, of meddling in the affairs of the state.
Giwa alleged that Mrs. Betty had turned herself to a decision-maker by unilaterally imposing some decisions on the state.
The pastor, in a statement to DAILY POST on Tuesday, alleged that the wife of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has hijacked primary schools’ renovation project and other contracts in the state.
The clergyman also lambasted Mrs. Akeredolu for turning herself to “nuisance” in the social media, especially on Facebook.
“One doesn’t know who is the governor of Ondo State between Governor Akeredolu and his wife. I have carefully observed how governance is being run in the state.
“A situation whereby a governor is allowing his wife to make some decisions is uncalled for. From my findings, Mrs. Akeredolu is the governor of Ondo state not her husband.
“Imagine the scenario of which the governor’s wife dictates what is happening in the state. Ondo State cannot be ruled by a wife of the governor.
“The contracts that supposed to be handled by competent hands are being given to the family members of Mrs. Akeredolu.
“No wonder everything remains stagnant since inception of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu. The wife determines who to be commissioners, Special Advisers etc.
“Also, the rate at which Mrs. Akeredolu is operating Social Media, especially the Facebook is uncalled for. Imagine the wife of the office that supposed to respect her office has turned herself to nuisance?
“This action is nothing, but ridiculous. I hereby call on the governor to address this situation before it gets out of hand,” the statement read.
