The director of Media and Publicity of the Ondo Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Mr. Ayo Fadaka has described a member of the House of Representatives of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr. Afe Olowookere as illiterate and Uninformed.
He said this while reacting to a statement credited to Olowookere as reported by Punch News, stating that the immediate Past Governor of Ondo state, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko wasted state resources on building the Over 50 Mega schools across the state. Olowookere allegedly stated this at the inauguration of new primary and secondary schools at Ilekun Community, Oda and Agbeja Community in Igoba, Akure in the Akure South and Akure North Local Government Areas of Ondo State respectively.
He had faulted the immediate past administration of Dr. Olusegun Mimiko on the mega school and shuttles bus projects that the administration carried out.
The lawmaker said the Peoples Democratic Party’s government wasted billions of naira on the projects, alleging that the projects further put the state into serious debt. He was quoted saying;
”The government wasted billions of petrol dollar money on building of Mega Schools and buying shuttle buses and plunged the state into serious huge debt”
In a swift reaction when contacted, Mr. Ayo Fadaka of the PDP reacted to his statement by saying the All Progressives Congress lawmaker was mischievous in his comments over the Education policy of the Mimiko-led administration. He said Mimiko’ administration touched the lives of the Ondo people.
Fadaka said, ” He (Olowookere) did not put the future of the children of the state into consideration to have made such statements about our education policy. His opinion was not only uninformed but illiterate because a lot of input went into every action of government.”
“Governor Mimiko in his days as a governor did let the people of the state know that he had the commitment of touching their lives. The action of his government has definitely touched the lives of every Ondo State citizen. “
It will be recalled, that Afe Olowookere has been widely described by the citizens and residents of Akure, as one of the accidental honourables, who got his way into the green chambers by the Pupolar ‘Change’ deceit of the APC in the last Two years. Many residents of Akure are also of the opinion that Olowookere has done next to nothing in affecting the lives of his constituents, since he got the mandate.
