PDP blasts Ajimobi for stopping WAEC fees

The party said the decisions were indictments on how badly Governor Abiola Ajimobi had run the state in the last four years.

This is just as it flayed the government for cancelling the sponsorship of annual Hajj pilgrimage.

While Governor Ajimobi hinged the decisions on the poor state of the economy, the PDP said it was not satisfied, stating that the government’s inability to properly plan for the future and its dependence on federal allocations brought the state to its present sorry state.

The PDP, in a statement made available to journalists in Ibadan, signed by its state Chairman, Alhaji Yinka Taiwo, said with such decisions that will hurt the people of the state, the All Progressives Congress, APC-led government in the state has proved to the people that it is “deceptive, dishonest and incapable of leading the state successfully”.

Taiwo compared Ajimobi to the biblical King Rehoboam in 1 Kings 12:11, who immediately after ascending the throne promised to add to the people’s yoke.

He noted that it was curious that the governor, despite not paying salaries as and when due and running an economy that is harsh to the survival of businesses, had decided to pile more woes on the people.

He said: “It is not only shameful that Ajimobi, who promised free and qualitative education, has cancelled the payment of WAEC fees and reintroduced school fees, it is appalling that under his watch, the educational standard of the state has gone down, with the state coming a distant 34th and failing to meet the national average, which was 31.29 per cent in the 2014 WAEC results.
