Akeredolu said the former governor’s lodge built by the colonial officers and used by late Dr. Olusegun Agagu was termites infected.

Akeredolu who spoke in Akure at the ground breaking of the building of a new Governor’s lodge said Mimiko did not fix the defect before leaving office.

The Ondo Governor said it was a wrong assertion that the Mimiko’s administration built a Governor lodge.

He said former Governor Mimiko converted an office into a lodge adding that it had structural defect that it would take a super man to live in.

According to him, “This state deserve a Governor lodge to be a pride to all of us. When Mimiko was handing over, he mentioned the defects and promised to fix it but he didn’t.

Akeredolu ordered the contractor to build an helipad saying that new lodge would be fitted with a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen, bedrooms and a good banquet hall.

The contractor, Architect Olufemi Bello, said the old building was inspected but discovered that it was not worth renovating.
