AKURE-ONDO STATE-The Leadership of  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has Condemned and termed action as the highest level of hypocrisy  the recent  directive of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu SAN, Governor of Ondo State wherein he allegedly banned public servants from participating in political campaigns.

 In a Statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity, Peoples Democratic party PDP, Ondo State Chapter, Mr. Zadok Akintoye, who Stated that the directive is a direct show of the insincerity of this APC-led government, remains nothing but a true reflection of hypocrisy.

Mr Zadok  noted that it is  on record that several pressure groups who campaigned for the re-election bid of the governor are not only promoted by top civil servants under the watch of this government but are largely financed through funding from Akeredolu's government.

"We dare say, that the Governor has through several means endorsed what he now seeks to openly distance himself from through his deliberate policies of promoting nepotism in the public service, thus forcing civil servants to either tow his line of support or be denied their rights". PDP Spokesperson stated.

PDP Leadership in Ondo State further argued: "How else can a government ensure that it is supported by civil servants through the force of persuasion, except through the deliberate denial of institutionalized promotion systems that mandates that appointments into senior management positions must be through hierarchy and seniority?"

The Statement reads in parts: "A government that
willfully ignores the right of civil servants to headship of agencies but promotes nepotism in a bid to satisfy some cronies of this governor and his supporters within the service should not now be hypocritically trying to gain some false good reputation".

"We therefore ask the Governor to disband all his support groups with known civil servants actively involved in promoting his second term ambition, if indeed he is sincere in this call".

"Our party wishes to remind Ondo state citizens that this government has not only brought more systemic injustices into the service but remains insincere and untruthful in its directive".

Ondo PDP then gives   the  Governor  24-hour ultimatum to disband his campaign and support groups championed by top civil servants to  indeed support his  sincere on the  call,  order, Pronouncements.
