From what we have read about the outcome, President Bola Tinubu’s intervention in the political crisis in Ondo State is a mere window dressing.
Above is the reaction of Mr Kennedy Ikantu Peretei, State Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party in Ondo State.
According to the PDP, there was conflicting reports on the resolutions of the Presidential parley at the instance of President Bola Tinubu to resolve the political impasse, that has plagued Ondo State for a better part of this year.
“Both Rotimi Akeredolu and his embattled Deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa’s camps interpreted the resolutions as being in their favour.
“Mrs Betty Akeredolu celebrated the resolutions on her verified X-handle as “Hottest Breafast to last everybody till 2025”. To Aiyedatiwa’s supporters, their worries about impeachment are over.
“Let us pray that, the Presidential intervention will not go the way of the Bello Masari Reconciliation Committee set up by APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje. After several trips to Abuja at Taxpayers’ expense, both parties returned to Court despite promises to withdraw all cases.
“Again, major stakeholders in the All Progressives Congress (APC), leadership of the Ondo State House of Assembly and Ondo State Government were at the Villa to iron out their intractable differences.
“From what we have read about the outcome, Tinubu’s intervention is a mere window dressing. Out of respect for his office, the impeachment of the Deputy Governor will no longer see daylight, but as long as Akeredolu remains in hiding, it is not yet Uhuru, the cat and mouse race will still continue. The siege is not yet over,” the PDP said.
