2023: Resign if you have political ambitions – Ogun governor tells appointees

by OtownGist

Political appointees in Ogun State have till January 31, 2022, to resign their appointments if they want to participate in the 2023 general elections.

Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, said this became necessary so that they could pursue their political dreams.

DAILY POST learnt that some top government functionaries in Abiodun’s cabinet are already aspiring to be Senators and House of Representatives members in 2023.

A statement issued in Abeokuta on Tuesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, said the directive had “become expedient to avoid observed distractions and loss of focus in the discharge of their responsibilities.”

While noting that it is legitimate to have such ambitions, the Governor, however, said he would not tolerate any activity that could undermine the mission of his administration.

“As an administration unwaveringly committed to delivering on its electoral promises, any activity that is capable of undermining the implementation of the Building Our Future Together Agenda of the Administration will not be tolerated,” Abiodun was quoted as saying.

The governor counselled that “those who cannot wait till the appropriate time for 2023 electioneering process should take their leave to pursue their ambitions.”

This, he said should be done “without constituting a clog in the wheel of the implementation of government programmes and activities.”

DAILY POST reports that the former Attorney General of Ogun State Akingbolahan Adeniran and a former Speaker of the Ogun House of Assembly, Hon. Muyiwa Oladipo, who was a Consultant to Abiodun, had recently resigned their appointments.
