“It is totally manipulating on the Governor’s part to attempt confusing Ondo citizens of a bank account sent to an NGO, which has contained no proof that certain items were purchased and also delivered.
“Nigerians therefore should be aware that Governor Akeredolu’s administration simply cannot account for how the money meant for COVID-19 management was spent as he has failed to show in quantifiable terms, expenditures, approving details, quantity of products purchased and confirmation of delivery for goods paid for”, the party stated.
“The Governor’s actions is one channeled at confusing the citizens as it explains referral of Ondo people to an NGO in Abuja.
