New governor’s lodge will not affect salary payment, says Akeredolu

By Osagie Otabor, Akure

Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has said that the new state-of-the-art governor’s lodge he is building would not affect payment of workers’ salaries.

Governor Akeredolu said the new lodge was among projects from a bond he is yet to access.

Akeredolu who spoke through his Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo, said the opposition PDP was at liberty to display ignorance on issues of governance.

He said the “misplaced allusion to the Governor’s Lodge as well as the weak nexus between same and the issue of salaries betrays unpardonable amnesia on the part of a political party.

“It becomes immeasurably uncanny if such party had left the stage with the most uncharitable legacy of ‘unpaid seven months salaries ‘.

“Perhaps, PDP deserves to know that the envisioned Governor’s Lodge is among the plethora of iconic projects targeted with the yet-to-be-fully accessed BOND. Suggesting, therefore, that Government should ‘shelve’ the project for salaries clearly shows a gross lack of knowledge of how Bonds work. They are, as Special Purpose means of funding developmental initiatives, inconvertible to cash, hence undrawable by anyone.

“Rather than abandon the welfare of workers for months without remorse under any guise, the Ondo State Government led by Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN shall, at all times, evolve ingenious means to address the issue of salaries in the face of excruciating global economic challenges.”
