Redeploy Ondo Police Chief, Group Tells Buhari, IG

A sociopolitical forum in Ondo State, Sunshine Development Group(SDG), whose vision is to raise new generation leaders with purpose, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari and the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu for the immediate removal and redeployment of the Commissioner of Police in Ondo, Bolaji Salami, over his show of shame in the premises of the Government House late yesterday.

The Police Chief, shown in a video that has gone viral on the social media space, had accosted the Ondo Deputy Governor, Mr. Agboola Ajayi, preventing him from leaving the premises of the state house for many hours. Many aides of the Deputy Governor had earlier been accused by the governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, of looting government properties in their care. Mr. Ajayi had also planned to defect to the main opposition party in the state. This, we feel, is against the right to freedom of movement and association of citizens of Nigeria.

SDG, rising from an emergency virtual meeting, resolved to call for the immediate removal of the Police Chief as his continued overseeing of police affairs in Ondo State portends great danger to the existing calm and peace enjoyed here. It is instructive to note too, that the refusal to redeploy Mr. Bolaji Salami implies the Police Headquarters have concluded plans to stir the still waters in the state and influence the next gubernatorial elections in Ondo. If the Deputy Governor of a state is given such treatment, what then is the fate of the common man on the streets of Akure?

We hereby call on President Buhari and IG Adamu to redeploy Mr. Salami with immediate effect as it is now clear he won’t be unbiased in the monitoring and supervision of the state in the forthcoming governorship election. A stitch in time, they say, saves nine!

Signed:
Olusegun Akinsehinde,
Secretary.

Ajongbolo Oluwagbenga,
Director, Media and Publicity.

For Sunshine Development Group(SDG).
