You cannot eat your cake and still have it.

This is the reason six members of the Ondo State Executive Council have resigned from the cabinet. 

They complied with the directive of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu that all political appointees, who have obtained nomination forms to contest the forthcoming primary of the party, should resign.

The affected political officers included the Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Omowumi Olatunji; Commissioner for Agriculture, Gboyega Adefarati; and Commissioner for Land and Housing, Donald Ojogor.

Others are the Commissioner for Commerce, Timehin Adelegbe; Special Adviser on Rural Development, Victor Olabimtan; and Special Adviser on a Health, Dr Jibayo Adeniyi.

Akeredolu had ordered all political appointees in his government seeking elective positions to resign on or before September 17 (tomorrow).

Meanwhile, the leadership crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State had yet to be resolved as a member of the House of Representatives from the state, Bamidele Baderinwa, has declared his support for the direct primary system of electing the candidates of the party in the forthcoming general elections.

Baderinwa, who represents Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency of Ondo State at the lower chamber of the National Assembly, described as bogus a stakeholders’ meeting held last week by Akeredolu and several chieftains of the party in the state where indirect primary was adopted to choose its candidates.
