Obviously, this is not the best time for Nigeria. Back to Ondo State, my findings revealed that collectors of govt revenues divert and siphon a good percentage of the funds while some indigenes of the State do not pay taxes, for lack of trust in the present government. It’s so bad that some of the collectors have their own receipts to collect revenues on behalf of govt. I was a victim, I paid 750,000 to an agency only for 250, 000 to reflect in the govt coffers.
I hereby call on well meaning indigenes of Ondo State in Nigeria and the diaspora to look in the direction of our dear State and bring in industries and private investments here, to salvage our State and support the incoming administration. I strongly believe that Akeredolu is good-intentioned but this is not enough to turn the fortunes of the State around. For those who are close to him, please advise him not to have too many political appointees. A former governor in the South West once had a Special Adviser on Cosmetics, it was that bad. Somebody told me few days ago that over 5,000 people are expecting appointments from Akeredolu and the rat racing has started already, my advice to these people is to go and find something doing. Let Akeredolu settle down for real work.
He may have to merge some ministries, boards and parastatals. Also, he should be very vigilant as most senior civil servants are conduits of fraud and corruption in the system, some of them built houses that worth tens and hundreds of millions in Alagbaka. Doing the right things in office, I strongly believe Aketi’s tenure will orchestrate Ondo’s golden era.
