Akeredolu takes oath of office, becoming Ondo’s new governor

Rotimi Akeredolu taking oath as the new governor, Ondo state

Ondo State now has a new governor, as Rotimi Akeredolu, a senior advocate of Nigeria, on Friday took the oath of office as the sixth democratically-elected governor of the state.

He replaced Olusegun Mimiko.

Earlier, Ajayi Agboola was sworn into office as deputy governor.

Leaders of the All Progressives Congress, including Bola Tinubu and Bisi Akande attended the event held in Akure, the state capital.

Mr. Tinubu’s attendance signaled a truce between him and the new governor after the controversy that trailed November’s gubernatorial elections.

Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, and Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, governor’s forum, also witnessed the transfer of power from the PDP to APC.

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, and state governors of Ogun, Niger, Kogi, Sokoto and Oyo states were also all in attendance.

    EDITOR SIR,

    Bola Tinubu: See your Oga na master!

    Was Bola Tinubu there to prostrate
    for Rotimi Akeredolu as his Oga na master? Rotimi Akeredolu said before the
    election he will defeat and disgrace the Bola Tinubu faction and did so with
    landslide. Bola Tinubu must go to Ondo to prostrate for a new leader without
    further delay.

      …………One Million Naira is now equal to $1,860 U.S dollars

      Rotimi Akeredolu must look well at the environment he’s inheriting before he makes bogus promises.
      A millionaire in Nigeria today actually has less than the one month salary of a street cleaner in France.
      That’s how bad Nigeria’s fallen because Nigerians (including university graduates amongst them)
      discounted the olden wisdom that knowledge is power as Inflation hit 18.7% on the back of Buhari’s 62%
      thoughtless devaluation of the national currency in Nigeria.

      One million Naira in Nigeria is now worth 1,860 U.S dollars at street exchange rate in Lagos, today.
      The Muhamadu Buhari who wrought this untold hardship and mass poverty on Nigerians has been
      absent from work for weeks, and has indicated he will be on indefinite (sick) leave abroad, but without
      disclosing his ailment, meaning that Nigeria is now driftless without any purpose or direction. In short,
      this Muhamadu Buhari has no sense of responsibility whatsoever. He’s now a national burden!!

        Campaign wailer.

        First of all, you must think everyone who read comments here is igbo and in wailing mode like all of you hypocrites out there who are deliberately mischievous, morally bankrupt, lacking un integrity and lower than .0 in every known ethical values.

        How exactly did Buhari bring about the devaluation or recession ravaging Nigeria? How much of the nations revenues has he misappriorated in the past two years that has brought about the devaluation? How much did he also steal from Venzuela an oil dependent country which unfortunately also had the save savings model like the Nigeria ran by your beloved PDP especially under mr. Fortunato? Which role does Buhari play in your curious choices especially desire for imported shoes, cloths, bags etc from Italy, China etc when the same and equal qualities are available from Aba, Sokoto, Maiduguri etc of Nigeria? Which role did Buhari play in the better part of Jonathan’s government when oil prices was as high as over $140/barrel while he incompetently could not save a dime to consolidate on the over $60 billion he inherited from Yar Adua but blew all the money that came from the oil boom and also went ahead to deplete by more than half what he inherited?

        You have long to stay bitter and in your wailing mode. First, your nnamdi kunu, kanoe and whichever it is will remain in his cage in Kuje zoo. Secondly, SS will NEVER be in your biafra beyond your SE/nnamdi/igboland. Deal with these realities and you might be able to think straight like a rational human being.

        • oyoko

          hey my broda, u made mine day. well constructed, well articulated, well informed, and well presented. i have said it before, 80% of my people from south east can’t survive a well defined system, they thrive more on chaotic situation. This Buhari’s reformed system is too much for them to operate in; they prefer fortunato system, where looting is the order of the day, unfortunately for them, the hand of God has come to stay in Nigeria. i have told them, that it is better they change and embrace this new system if they want to survive.

      • Powerlessconscious

        Biafraud. You are a complete liar like okonjo iweala.

    • Yemi T. Johnson

          Were you saying the same thing when your hero, Jonathan, was in charge? I guess NO. What world do you live on? I’m sure you are a paid troll.

      • Powerlessconscious

    Bola Ahmed omo ole Tinubu is a shameless vulture from the tribe of Diya a crying General without shame.

    Tinubu wife Remi is pregnant for Dino and Tinubu is running to Ondo where no one invited him. Silly.

    • Julius

    Excellent statesmanship by BAT. Putting his party’s interests above himself…
    The misinformed should note that AKETI was his legal representative, and they go back a long way back.
    What should be paramount in the minds of us, the masses, is to keep demanding for good government and our rights. We must never lose sight of this, politicians will always find common ground, we also need to be joined up in demanding our rights!
