Fawehinmi’s son accuses governors of poor performance
The eldest son of the late lawyer and human right activist, Late Chief Gani Fawehinmi (SAN), Mohammed Fawehinmi has said southwest governors deserve to be sanctioned for their alleged failing to develop their states.
Specifically, the head of the Gani Fawehinmi chambers slammed Oyo State governor, Senator Isiaka Ajimobi for the deplorable state of Oyo saying he deserved to be impeached alongside other southwest governors.
Speaking at the 2nd Edition of Gani Fawehinmi Public Lecture organized by the Students’ Union of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Fawehinmi said Ajimobi and other governors in the southwest have failed those who gave them their mandates.
“Most southwest governors owe workers their salaries and there is abject hunger and rot in their states,” he said
Also speaking at the public lecture, the Chairman of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), OAU chapter, Dr. Caleb Aborisade paid tribute to late Gani Fawehinmi describing him as the Senior Advocate of the Masses.
The ASUU then called on the students of OAU to emulate the stern qualities of late anti corruption crusader by putting the interest of the masses at heart in their dealings.
The president the Students’ Union of OAU, Mr. Omotayo Akande described the Federal Government’s planned payment of N5, 000 stipend to unemployed graduates as unfortunate and a slap on the faces of Nigerian graduates.
According to him, the federal government should rather spend the money on projects that would create employment to the teeming unemployed graduates.
He said: “it is a slap on the face of this country that its graduates
have been reduced to N5,000. Its very unfortunate and we want to condemn the payment. The N5,000 which totals N1.3 trillion a year should be spent on infrastructures, power and other meaning projects that will help provide jobs for these graduates.”
