Ondo Governor Accused Of Bribing Judges With SUV

Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ Gospel Church, Pastor Adewale Giwa, has faulted Governor Rotimi Akeredolu for purchasing brand new SUVs for judges in Ondo State.

Akeredolu had presented 16 brand new 2019 model Toyota Land Cruiser Prado SUVs for the use the Chief Judge of the state and other judges.

Making the presentation on Wednesday in Akure, the state capital, he said the gesture was to demonstrate his administration’s promise to create a conducive atmosphere to the workforce.

The vehicles were received by the Chief Judge, Justice Oluwatoyin Akeredolu, at the Government House, Alagbaka, Akure.

Reacting, Giwa in a statement on Friday, said the development was an “inducement” which had set a bad precedent.

He said: “It is very unnecessary and insulting to the Institution of the judiciary for a governor to be buying vehicles for judges who are financially independent.
