Why I Resigned After Aketi’s Death – Akeredolu’s Aide

Doyin Odebowale, the former Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties and Strategy to late Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has explained why he resigned following the governor’s death.

Odebowale along with the Commissioner for Infrastructure, Lands and Housing, Aminu Raimi; and the Special Assistant on Photography to the former governor, Olawale Abolade, resigned following the passing of Akeredolu on Wednesday in Germany.

Also, the Special Adviser on Union Matters and Special Duties, Dare Aragbaye, and the Chief Press Secretary to the former Governor, Richard Olatunde, resigned.

In their letters of resignation addressed to the Office of the Secretary to the State Government, the two aides cited Akeredolu’s death as the reason for their actions.

However, Odebowale disclosed on Saturday that he resigned as he could not guarantee the same commitment he had with Akeredolu.

He noted that he had performed his duties with the full support of the late governor whom he said he had worked with for over 30 years.

He added that he convinced Akeredolu to contest the governorship in 2018 and that led to him holding the office of a special adviser to the governor to run the affairs of the state.

He, however, noted that despite his loyalty to the late governor, he has no issues with the newly-sworn in governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

“I have worked with Akeredolu for 30 years. I was the last person who convinced him to contest in the last election. I wrote all his campaign content. It is more of a personal reason to me. I have nothing against whosoever is in office now.
