Giwa has also lamented that the number of doctors in the state can no longer serve its growing population.

While urging Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to urgently do the needful to reverse the situation, Pastor Giwa maintained that the state deserves better.

Recall that Akeredolu had on Thursday directed Vice Principals in secondary schools and Assistant Head Teachers in primary schools to return to classrooms due to the shortage of teachers in schools across the State.

Also, the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, Ondo State Chapter had some weeks back raised an alarm over the mass exodus of medical doctors from the state’s civil service due to poor conditions of service.

The cleric said medical facilities in the state had become shadows of themselves, stressing also that the security situation in the state needs more commitment from the governor.

“There are not enough teachers, no doctors in the state. When you go to our Mother and Child Hospital, nothing to write home about

“A situation where less than five medical doctors will be attending to the population of fewer than one million citizens in Akure metropolis is worrisome.

“Within two years, traditional ruler and traditional chief were murdered by Fulani terrorists in Ondo State.

“Let me advise Governor Akeredolu to think about the legacies he is leaving behind and quickly address these issues. Ondo State deserves better treatment.”
