The President invited key stakeholders within the state’s APC alongside the National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, to put an end to the simmering crisis of confidence between Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
“Owing to a number of reasons, the issues between the Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, and his Deputy had worsened to the point that the President felt the need to step in.
“At the meeting with President Tinubu were principal actors in the crisis, Deputy Governor Aiyedatiwa, Secretary to the State Government, Princess Oladunni Odu, Speaker Ondo State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Oladiji Olamide, and other government and party officials.
It can be safely assumed that the political impasse will soon become a thing of the past.
“Recall that during the campaign process, the President, then the standard bearer of the All Progressive Congress, would take time out to quell issues between members of the party in states where he visited.
