APC’s Intervention in Ondo State Rift: A Shift in Sympathies

Reports suggest that the All Progressives Congress (APC) may alter its approach to resolving the dispute between Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

This shift comes as it’s revealed that a significant portion of the APC Peace Committee has leaned towards supporting Aiyedatiwa.

APC’s Reconciliation Committee: A New Twist in Akeredolu-Aiyedatiwa Feud

The national chairman of the APC, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, established a reconciliation committee to address the ongoing political discord between Governor Akeredolu and his deputy, Aiyedatiwa.

This committee embarked on a process that could have a profound impact on the situation.

A Soft Landing for the Deputy Governor

During the peace meeting organized by the reconciliation committee, it has been suggested that the majority of its members showed sympathy towards Deputy Governor Aiyedatiwa.

This strategic move to provide him a “soft landing” has raised questions about the committee’s stance on the ongoing dispute.

Personal Grudges and Political Disagreements

The reported inclination of the committee members towards Aiyedatiwa is linked to unresolved grudges with Governor Akeredolu.

These grudges stem from Akeredolu’s previous interventions in national issues, particularly his outspokenness during the former President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

The Committee’s Leanings and Bias

The committee appears to be leaning in favor of Aiyedatiwa, with some members harboring grievances against Governor Akeredolu.

Akeredolu’s strong public stance on issues like Fulani herdsmen and the demand for restructuring has caused disagreements within the party.

Divided Opinions: The Ondo State Representatives

Opinions within the committee vary, with the majority of the House of Representatives and Senate members from Ondo State calling for Aiyedatiwa to apologize to the governor.

However, the committee is reportedly assuring the deputy governor that no consequences will follow if he doesn’t apologize.

Implications for Akeredolu and the House of Assembly

As it stands, it seems that the committee may not be offering much support to Governor Akeredolu.

The recommendations and decisions stemming from this committee’s findings could potentially impact both the governor and members of the House of Assembly in Ondo State.
