The allegations were contained in a statement the Publicity Secretary of APC in Ondo State, Mr. Abayomi Adesanya read out on Friday while talking to newsmen in Akure.

Adesanya said back-dated letters of appointment were secretly issued to newly employed workers by the outgoing administration of Mimiko, adding that the alleged subterranean move was to ambush the incoming APC government.

His word, “We have been adequately informed of the unholy and unpatriotic dealings of the outgoing Governor Olusegun Mimiko, by secretly employing over 10,000 people into all the ministries, parastatals and agencies in the state, especially Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko.

“This is in a bid to create problems and complexity for the incoming administration of APC when his eight years tenancy in Alagbaka Government House, ends in Feb. 2017.

“Mr Mimiko has been recruiting massively into the Health Sector, Local Governments, Education Ministry, among others.

“Properties of the State Oil Palm Plantation at Okitipupa, Irele, Araromi-Obu are being sold at give-away prices to the governor’s allies.

“Specifically, we are aware that one Mercedes Benz lorry, popularly called 9/11, was sold for just one hundred thousand Naira only (N100,000).”
