The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state has criticized in strong terms, an alleged fresh plot by the Governor Rotimi Akeredolu led government to deduct the state’s workers’ salaries, in order to fund Amotekun security network.
A statement signed by the Party’s Publicity secretary, Mr. Kennedy Ikantu Peretei reads in part:
“Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN has perfected plans to deduct from source, salaries of Ondo State workers purportedly to fund the State’s Security Network, popularly known as Amotekun.”
Peretei further enthused that Ondo State workers are the most pauperized and traumatized in southwest Nigeria, despite being the only oil-producing state
He added that a circular stating how much is to be deducted from all grade levels showed clearly that, the Governor is outrightly insensitive to the suffering workers just as he queried the Governor on what he dispenses the huge security vote given to him on
The party urged Akeredolu to be more frugal with the handling of the finances of Ondo State, so as not to impoverish the workers further.
