The Ondo state government and the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, weekend trade blames over the overseas trip of Governor Olusegun Mimiko, while workers are on strike over unpaid salaries.
While the APC rebuked the governor for travelling while the workers suffer, the government fired back, saying the trip was on invitation.
The government said the governor went to London on the invitation of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House for the 2016 London Conference, where he spoke on “Health care for All: From Aspiration to Implementation.
But the opposition in the state through its Director of Media and Publicity, Steve Otaloro in Akure; “Traveling out without making any meaningful effort to end the strike action.
“This is a height of callousness on the part of Governor Mimiko and it is totally unacceptable to the people who elected him to take care of their welfare.”
