BREAKING: Ondo Lawmakers Meet to Discuss Political Situation, May Declare Aiyedatiwa Acting Governor

The Ondo State House of Assembly is set to hold a plenary session today to discuss the state’s political situation, including the possibility of declaring Deputy Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa as acting governor.

Sources close to the matter have indicated that the lawmakers may take this step due to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s ongoing health issues, which have prevented him from resuming his duties. Governor Akeredolu is currently recuperating at his private residence in Ibadan, Oyo State.

While some lawmakers are reportedly in favour of declaring Aiyedatiwa acting governor, others have expressed opposition. It has also been gathered that the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reportedly given its approval for the plenary session.

The lawmakers are ready to meet today (Friday). One of the agenda of the sitting is the declaration of Lucky Aiyedatiwa as the acting governor. Though some of the lawmakers may not be at the meeting today because they are not in support of Aiyedatiwa becoming an acting governor the national leadership of the APC knows about and has approved the meeting. So they may declare Aiyedatiwa acting governor today,” the source reportedly said.

Olatunji Oshati, Chairman of the House Committee on Information, confirmed the development but declined to say definitively whether or not Aiyedatiwa would be declared acting governor. He stated that the House would be “reviewing the political situation today as directed by our national leaders.”

Recall that President Bola Tinubu has fixed today to meet with members of the Ondo State House of Assembly in Abuja to discuss the ongoing political crisis.
