Opinion: ONDO, EDO-The Hobson'S Choice Between Two Evils


My beloved state of origin Ondo like neighbouring Edo State, are both in a state of dilemma and electoral Penkelemesi" before their respective elections in September and October. 

What Ondo state has witnessed since the advent of democracy is backwardness due to the cluelessness and barbaric nature of those who have occupied the governorship seat after Governor Adefarati since 2003, this has left a sour taste and much to be desired. From the ruinous Agagu Government, to the Pilfering and Thieving & deceitful Government of Mimiko to now Backwardness and Thieving Aketi Government leaves a sour taste in the governance of this state.

Aketi started a road project in Ikare Akoko town since his assumption of office&he is completing his four years in a few months time, up till now, he is still on a road project that is not up to 10kilometer since his inauguration. Such is the state of things in Ondo, Pensioners are not paid Thier gratuities and pay, workers are been paid half salaries, the poor state of the road network in the state, the doctors are on strike,and just to mention a few, I ask , what is Akeredolu coming to continue in his second term?

 I hope the people of this state will overwhelming vote him out. What makes it an HOBSON'S choice is his main challenger in the Peoples Democratic Party Eyiatayo Jegede who was the former Secretary To the State Government to Mimiko, you can guess what he too may turn out to be.. 


This same scenario in Ondo is what is playing out in Edo where Obaseki and Oshiomole, are having a Show of Shame and Madness that is bereft of ideas, we witnessed how the Governor yanked off the roof of the State House Of Assembly because he feared he may be impeached, such is the state of Mindset of our cruel Politicians, all Thier roforofo" fight, is not for the benefit of the people but how to loot money.

I hope a time will come in Nigeria when citizens will be alive to their Responsibility and demand accountability &true representation from political office holders, if it means to occupy the Government house till the wishes of the people are granted, why not?

God bless my people in Ondo&Edo state.
