A Group, APC Youth League (AYL) Ondo State Coordinate has urged the state governor, Dr. Segun Mimiko to pay workers salaries instead of his late hour beautification of roundabouts and bus stops in Akure Metropolis as the only way he can be trusted and respected as a successful Governor after seven and half wasteful years.
In a statement made available to journalists in Akure, the State Capital of Ondo State on Saturday by the Group’s Co-ordinator, Comrade Adebowale Akinlosotu, the group appealed to the state government to clear the seven month salary arrears of the state workers to reduce the hardship in the state instead of embarking on this window dressing and cosmetic programme that has no relevance to the people’s well-being.
The group opined that such late hour painting of bus stops and roundabouts without paying an outstanding salary of the civil servants running into seven months now is wicked, callous, heartless, insensitive on the part of the self-acclaimed Caring Heart Government .
The Groups further calls the attention of the State House of Assembly to take necessary steps on the actions of the Governor who alleged that the state government was broke and unable to pay workers salary.
The Group also appealed to the EFCC to beam there searchlight on Ondo State Government in order to know why some projects approved over seven years ago are yet to be completed.
