The governor of Ondo State Rotimi Akeredolu has said that he can make his son, Baba(Babajide) his chief of staff and there is nothing anybody can do about that.
The governor stated this at a dinner held to celebrate 3 years of his administration which took place at international event centre, Akure, the state Capital.
The governor was quoted as saying
“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.
“Ask yourself, how many of you did more than Baba during the campaign? How many?
“The young boy (Babajide) was going everywhere and all of us saw him but we decided because he won’t want it. I just said leave him.
“My son is satisfied, that is why, if he was not, I will put him somewhere, there is nothing anybody can do.
“I will put him, there is nothing you can do. Is he not my son? Is he not from Ondo State? Has he not worked?”
The governor also thanked his wife, Betty for her role in his administration. He further said
I can never forget the great work that my wife has done in this state. I am not sure you can find a better First Lady, someone who has great interest in women.
“She is committed to women’s cause. I am not too sure I know many women who are in government today who are there on their own. It’s all through her efforts.”
