Ondo 2012: Akeredolu urges IGP to redeploy top cops

THE governorship Candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, in Ondo State, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu,  has called on the Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar, to ensure that the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of operations in the state, is redeployed to another state, in order to ensure unbiased policing of the exercise.

He also dismissed claims by the  Labour Party, LP, that he was not a registered  voter in the state.

A statement by the Director Media and Publicity of Akeredolu Campaign Organisation, ACO, noted that ACN would not  increase the tuition fees of the Adekunle Ajasin University and Rufus Giwa Polytechnic if elected.

His words: ‘’We call for the immediate transfer of the Deputy-Commissioner of police in charge of operations in Ondo State, Mr. Henry Fadiro, the Force Public Relation Officer, Ondo State, Mr. Adeniran Aremu, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Garba, Muhammed in order to avoid the compromise that could lead to chaos in the coming October 20 governorship election in the State.’’

He further explained that, ‘’the activities of Mr. Fadairo Aremu and Muhammed have become firmly rooted in the State since 2009, when they were transferred to the State following the resumption of Governor Olusegun Mimiko after his victory at the court of Appeal in Benin.Twice they have been transferred from the State to Taraba and Lagos States; twice they had been brought back to Ondo State with the influence of Governor Mimiko.’’

In addition, he  described the allegations that ACN candidate was not a registered party member, as a ploy  aimed at circumventing the wish of Ondo people.

‘’ACO wishes to state unequivocally that nothing can be farther from the truth than this idle talk targeted at arresting the rising profile and acceptability of Akeredolu.

It is laughable to insinuate that the ACN flag bearer, a senior member of the Bar would contemplate of venturing into anything unconstitutional,’’ he stated.
