THE League of Ondo Professionals in Edo State has urged Governor Olusegun Mimiko to explain how his administration expended N3 trillion collected from the Federation Account since 2008.
It said there was no meaningful growth in Ondo State despite the huge resources that accrued to the state.
The group hailed the election of Rotimi Akeredolu as the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress.
It said its decision to support Akeredolu was because of the belief that that he has the capacity to deliver the people of Ondo State from the “lamentable life” they found themselves under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This was contained in a communique issued at the end of its quarterly meeting in Benin City and signed by its chairman and secretary, Dr. Ibikunle Falana and Mr. Francis Oke.
The communique reads: “The present Mimiko government had no vision to create jobs or empower the jobless youths, who are now posing security risk to their own people.
“The present administration squandered all the federal allocations without any meaningful developments.”
The group hailed APC delegates for shunning monetary inducement by voting for Akeredolu, who, it said, could turn situation of things around in the state.
