Why I Appointed My Son As DG – Akeredolu

Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has given reasons why he appointed his son, Babajide, as the Director General, Performance and Project Implementation Monitoring Unit (PPIMU).

He said that he created PPIMU through an executive order because of the need to recalibrate his administration’s development agenda and ensure value for all resources being deployed.

Akeredolu spoke when he swore in 14 commissioners, seven special advisers and his son, Babajide.

He said that the lean resources called for project monitoring and somebody with the intellect.

The governor, who said he would not be moved by criticism or comments from those who knew nothing about governance, added that he would leave a state residents would be proud of.

He cautioned against unnecessary bickering between civil servants and political appointees, even as he threatened to sanction anybody found wanting.

Those sworn in as commissioners were Adefarati Adegboyega Adeyemi, Ademola-Olateju Bamidele, Mrs. Adeyanju Yetunde, Pastor Agagu Sunday Olufemi, Dr. Ajaka Banji Awolowo, Mr. Akinlosotu Adewale, Akinwaliru Adekunle Sunday, Mr. Aribo Olayato, Mr. Fagbemi Omolola Juliana, Pastor Igbasan Emmanuel Duyile, Obe Rasaq Ayodele, an engineer; Mr. Ologun Bamidele, Alhaji Olotu-Aburumaku Abdulfatai and Dr. Osadahun Juliana Adebunmi.

The seven special advisers are Dr. Adeyeye Ajibayo John, Mr. Ategbole Olusegun, Prof. Faduyile Francis Adebayo, Mrs. Falana Olamide Juliana, Dr. Ilawole Olawunmi Juliet, Ogunleye Tobi Felix, a lawyer and Mr. Oseni Oyeniyi
