The governor of Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu,has declared that his son, Babajide, worked hard during his campaign and there is nothing anyone can do if he decides to appoint him as his chief of staff.
The governor disclosed this during a dinner held to commemorate his third year in office. He claimed his son worked hard during his campaign and deserved any post in his administration.
“When somebody says Baba (Babajide) is this, I just laugh at them. If I wanted to make Baba my chief of staff, he can be; did you do more than him in the campaign? Ask yourself, how many of you did more than Baba in the campaign? How many?” he asked.
“The young boy was going everywhere and all of us saw him but we decided not to because he wouldn’t want it. My son is satisfied, that’s why. If he is not, I will put him somewhere, there is nothing anybody can do. I will put him there, there is nothing you can do. Is he not my son? Is he not from Ondo state? Has he not worked?”
The governor also praised his wife, Betty, for her efforts in the state.
