The Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has lashed out at his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike of his allegations ahead of the forthcoming polls in Ondo State.

While urging Wike to exercise caution over his utterances, Akeredolu said that Ondo State is not Rivers where he can lord over anyone.

According to Akeredolu, who spoke through his Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo, said the scheme by Wike to assume the role of godfather ahead of the poll will be resisted by the people of Ondo State.

On Friday, during a breakfast programme on Channels Television, Wike had alleged that following the victorious outing of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Edo State, there is enormous pressure on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that the All Progressives Congress (APC) wins at all cost during the October 10 polls.

While emphasizing the Wike’s “imperialistic approach is most unfortunate and very unbecoming,” Akeredolu said tactics cannot work in Ondo State.

Akeredolu said “In all aspects, Governor Wike deserves respect not just as governor but as a critical stakeholder in the Democratic journey. He has his inalienable rights as a citizen to express his mind and make comments about whatever he feels strongly about.

“However, what amuses us is his imperious attitude and recourse to spurious allegations just because of an election. He should know that the people of the state, who have a history of rejecting external influence and domination, will resist his attempt to play the role of a godfather in Ondo state. Ondo is not Rivers.

“The man ought to know that utterances of public office holders must be measured and their delivery ought to be in line with the mood of the people. The people of the state will resist Wike here even if he had roared elsewhere successfully. For emphasis, his imperialistic approach is most unfortunate and very unbecoming.”
