A civil servant, who asked not to be named, described Governor Akeredolu’s action as a ‘misplacement of priority and waste of money’.

He expressed concern about the governor’s priority as the state government owes civil servants and pensioners three to five months unpaid salaries and gratuities.

“Is it not funny that a governor who claimed the state was cash strapped yesterday during our first working day meeting for the Year 2021 presented vehicles worth over N70m to just one person today?

“Considering the cost of importation, the expected profit by the supplier, those vehicles I saw today can’t be less than N100m, yet he can’t pay salaries. As we speak, we are being owed three to five months salaries, same as the pensioners. This is nothing but a waste of money,” he said.

This is coming just a few months after Governor Akeredolu was re-elected and decalred winner of the October 9, 2020 gubernatorial election in Ondo State.
