The former Ondo Governor described Akeredolu’s policy as anti-people especially the cancellation of free health and an increase in tuition fees paid by tertiary institutions in the state.

Reacting in kind to his predecessor, Akeredolu stated that it was unfortunate that Mimiko who sacked over 10,000 workers in the state is calling the hs administration anti-people government.

Akeredolu spoke through his spokesman of his campaign organisation, Olatunde Richard.

He stated that his administration has not sacked anyone from the State or Local government level.

Citizens and residents of Ondo State are set to go the poll on the 10th of October and the race is between the incumbent Governor, his estranged deputy, who is running on the platform of ZLP, and Eyiyato Jegede, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.
