Ondo State Commissioner for Community Development and Co-operative Services, Mrs. Yetunde Adeyanju, has resigned her appointment with immediate effect. She dropped her resignation letter last week but issued a press statement yesterday where she announced her defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Similarly, Giwa Rasheed, a Special Assistant to Governor Olusegun Mimiko, has resigned and defected to APC. Adeyanju noted in the statement: “A huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders. The relief came from a refreshing freedom a political family where impunity reigns, freedom from subversion of democratic principles and indeed, freedom from deification of sycophancy.

“In the last seven years, I have served in various executive capacities in the state. I started as the executive chairman of Ondo State Waste Management Board, later moved on to head Ondo State Development Company Limited as executive chairman and finally, as commissioner in the Ministry of Community Development and Co-operative Services.

“Whenever I served, I discharged my duties with utmost dedication and unassailable integrity; notwithstanding the culture of greed, avarice and absolute disregard for the masses.

“Having exited the conundrum of capricious politics, I have, therefore, decided to align myself with true progressives in the APC. While I salute the patriots in the APC, I also want to commend President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption crusades.”

Adeyanju’s resignation raised to four the number of members of Ondo State cabinet who have parted ways with the state governor to seek greener political pastures elsewhere.

The trio of Olusola Ebiseni, Bamiduro Dada and Dayo Fadahunsi, who were Commissioners for Environment, Chieftaincy and Special Adviser on Labour Matters, had earlier resigned.
