Count Akinterinwa out of fake palliative rice package —Ondo govt insists

Wale Akinterinwa Did Not Divert Ondo State Palliative

Ondo State Palliative Strategy and Implementation Committee disavow in unequivocal terms the picture of a mini bag of rice bearing the picture of the committee Chairman, Mr. Wale Akinterinwa with “Palliative Show” boldly inscribed on it.

This totally fake, misleading, and derogatory picture seeks to subliminally portray Mr. Akinterinwa as having diverted rice meant for the vulnerable in Ondo State, for political campaign.

On behalf of the committee, we want the public to disregard the picture and its accompaniments as the concoction of idle hatchet men, bent on creating doubts and public distrust about the hard-working palliative committee and its programs.

We emphatically state that there is no truth to the claim. Mr. Akinterinwa did not divert rice or any other public good in the custody of the palliative committee.

Once again, we reiterate that our committee is committed to probity, transparency, and accountability during implementation and distribution of palliatives occasioned by the removal of subsidy. We urge the public to be vigilant enough to identify mischief makers and leave them to their designs. Thank you.
