Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has urged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to desist from blackmailing the government, insisting that welfare of the workers in the state is non-negotiable and paramount to the administration.

Akeredolu, in a statement in Akure, yesterday, through the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Donald Ojogo, said PDP’s outburst was a “rough path to depression.” He implored the party to rather concentrate on the Supreme Court case.

The PDP governorship candidate in the state, Eyitayo Jegede, having lost the bid to contest Akeredolu’s victory in the 2020 governorship poll at the tribunal and Appeal Court, had sought litigation at the Supreme Court.Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has urged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to desist from blackmailing the government, insisting that welfare of the workers in the state is non-negotiable and paramount to the administration.

Esimaje, who was represented by the Senior Government Advisor, Mr. Happy Apai, said: “It is important to note that the benefits of the GMoU can only be sustained in an atmosphere of peace that is conducive for business activities.

“As we all know, a key element of the GMoU is the peace building which creates a platform for all stakeholders to address issues and grievances through dialogue without allowing them to degenerate into disruptive conflict situations.”

He, therefore, urged the people and other critical stakeholders in the communities to continuously support the GMoU programme “so that the communities can reap more benefits.”

The Ondo State government, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Raphael Akinkugbe, reiterated the importance of peace, harmony and co-operation for the development of the communities.
