Ondo state government warns against impersonation of its officials



The Ondo state government has advised members of the public to be cautious in dealing with people parading themselves as spokespersons of government with the intention to misrepresent facts.

Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Special Duties and Strategy, Dr Doyin Odebowale in a statement said government has not mandated anyone to act on its behalf, through any agent, with specific regard to the operations of the suspended Transport union officials.

Dr Odebowale also emphasised that government has not closed or taken over any motor park, adding that his office has been directed to ensure that the sale of tickets issued by the Ondo State Internal Revenue Service ODIRS goes on without hinderance.

He said his priority is to enforce peace with the cooperation of security agencies in the state adding that only tickets issued by the Government shall be sold in the 18 Local Government Areas.

The Governor’s aide warned that anyone who conducts himself or herself in a manner likely to disrupt public peace shall be dealt with promptly and firmly.
