- Governor Rotimi Akeredolu was ordered by the PDP in Ondo state to prepare for reckoning
- The opposition party said this in response to the appointment from Babajide Akeredolu, the governor’s son, to head of an authority in the state
- According to the PDP, this is nothing more than greed, abuse of the people’s trust and his position as head of state
The appointment of Babajide Akeredolu as Director General of the Performance and Project Implementation Monitoring Unit (PPIMU) in Ondo caused a lot of turmoil in the state’s first family.

The state chapter of the PDP claimed in a statement of his spokesman Kennedy Peretei that the appointment of the governor’s son is not in the interests of the people but an affront to them.
In the statement seen by Punch, Peretei warned the governor categorically to get ready for the day of reckoning when he finally leaves office.
The statement is partly:
“So it seems that Mr. Governor and his immediate family are keen to live off the meager resources of the people when poverty has conquered the country, walk on all four legs …
“It is very obvious, that it is the greed of the first family that is fed, not their needs. Akeredolu, his wife and children must acknowledge that the resources they waste in this ruthless manner have only been given to them in trust on behalf of the people. You should remember that the day of reckoning is very near. ”
