CD Wants Gov Akeredolu Under House Arrest Over Crisis

Governor Akeredolu

The Campaign for Democracy (CD) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to place the Governor of Ondo State, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu under house arrest over what the group perceived as his attempt to unnecessary over the polity of the state as a result of recent hike in tuition fee he ordered.

Following this, the right group also called on the Inspector General of Police to give a marching order to the Commissioner of Police, Ondo State Command to release with immediate effect, all the students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko in his custody who the command arrested this week while they were protesting “the unreasonable and unsystematic increment of tuition fee in the state owned university.”

In a statement signed by the Comrade Baku Usman and Ifeanyi Odili, the President and the General Secretary of CD respectively, the group stated thus:

“Arresting the students is a violation of their fundamental human rights to peaceful protest; the government caused the peaceful student to go to the street by senselessly increasing their tuition fees without consideration of the students.

“We have it on good authority that the Governor boasted that the students can do their worse and that any student who cannot afford the fee should join their parents in trade. Therefore, it is politically expedient for the federal government to place the Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu under house arrest for attempting to unnecessarily heat up the polity and disrupting the public peace by the unwanted increment.

“Last week, unprecedentedly, the pregnant women with their protruding stomachs numbering about 200 marched on the State Specialists Hospital protesting outrageous medical fees introduced by the same Governor.

“The women asked the state government to urgently reverse the new #25,000.00 charge for normal deliveries and over #50,000.00 for complicated deliveries. Information reaching us has it that the hospital management is now putting any woman who cannot offset her medical bills after delivery under house arresting to the extent of christening the new born babies in the hospital premises. This is unheard of, and ungodly.

“Also recently, the traditionally free education was cancelled by Akeredolu and stopped the payment of WAEC fees for the students. All these pointed to the coldness and insensitivity of the governor to the plight of Ondo State people and that he is too far from the reality of governance.

“Soon after the swearing in of Rotimi Akeredolu, we have watched his style of administration and his person closely, consequently, we regret to infer, that Mr. Akeredolu is still very unripe, not fully formed to lead a people.

“Last week, the Campaign for Democracy (CD) issued the governor a month ultimatum to set up a probe panel to commence a full scale investigation into the financial activities of the past administration.

“The Governor accepted that the former government left behind 220 billion naira but that “his hands are tied to probe” his predecessor for the reason that, the previous governor was his Secretary General while he, Akeredolu was the president of Students’ Union Government of the university they both attended.

“We have also called on him to separate sentiment and friendship from governance, pointing to him that governance goes beyond friendships.

“The consequential effects of the financial recklessness of the previous administration, is the unnecessary and unacceptable burden placed on the people of Ondo State. On this note, we once again reiterate our call for the probing of the previous government or the government reverses all the yoke the Governor has placed on the people without further delay.

“If Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu says that he cannot probe former Governor Mimiko, we are also joining the people of Ondo State to say no to any increment in schools and hospitals fees.”
