Gov Akeredolu Rejects Report Snakes Chased Out Ondo Lawmakers

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu accused the legislators of the state of Ondo of trying to blackmail him with false reports of snakes that invaded the House of Assembly.

The governor announced this when he visited the Ondo Assembly complex this weekend. Akeredolu noted that the complex is infested with termites, which may have caused the roof to collapse.

However, he promised lawmakers that his administration would begin the renovation of the Assembly complex.

“All I have come to do is verify what happened and what I have seen is that there is an attempt to blackmail this government. We will not take it,” said Akeredolu.

“I made sure the speaker and most of the chief officers were here, and I have heard from them to find out exactly what happened. We have been told that no snake fell here.

They weren’t sitting when the roof went down, and they just found the shelter down. “There is an attempt to blackmail the government and I don’t think that is the best approach.

This (legislature) is an arm of government; they have their votes, and those who are entitled are the ones we give them. This place is infested with termites, and indeed, termites have been living here for several years.

“We have just spent two years, and there is no way that the infestation of termites in less than two years can cause such destruction. Something is wrong, and this place has not been maintained.

The members of the house have always been here, what have they done about the maintenance of this place? If you have not worried about this place, we all have to sit down and solve things. “
