The Government called for serious action against the party’s spokesman, Abayomi Adesanya, warning that his desperation for attention would spell doom for the incoming government if he is allowed to continue to run the party’s publicity machinery on outright falsehood.

The State’s Commissioner of Information, Kayode Akinmade, in a statement on Monday in Akure, said the APC must “tame Adesanya now and purge him of his lies before he becomes an embarrassment to the party and the incoming government.”

The Ondo APC Publicity Secretary at the weekend, had claimed that the state government collected in the new year, accumulated foreign grants of N1.5b and diverted same.

Mr. Akinmade who denied the claim, urged the APC to call Adesanya to order over what it described as “its recklessness and addiction to manufacturing and spreading lies to get recognition.”

He further dismissed the claim as a deliberate lie “weaved together by somebody who wants to be noticed at all cost because of his desperation for an appointment,” challenging Adesanya to go public with proof of his claim if any.

“But for the fact that the author of the fabrication lacks depth, character and knowledge of governance” he should have known that foreign grants are not the same like Manna that just drops.

“If Adesanya’s claims to have proof that the government collected any money in form of foreign grant, he must put the proof forward.

“By now, he should have realised that no government thrives on falsehood and one cannot deceive an enlightened populace like we have in Ondo”

Akinmade said the Mimiko led government is being adjudged the most successful so far in the history of the state because it thrives on transparency with nothing hidden from stakeholders and the general public.

According to the statement, this has made it difficult for any propaganda, lies and blackmail against the government to stand irrespective of who is dishing it out.

“It is sad that Adesanya remain unchecked in his negative line of attention seeking strategy, which is telling lies against the government of the day,

“Adesanya’s action is unfortunate, as he has succeeded only in tagging himself as a non-starter in governance and a chronic liar who is not reliable enough for a place in any serious government that wants to succeed,” the statement added.
