“Let Aiyedatiwa breathe” – Ex Attorney-General sends warning to politicians

A former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Adetokunbo Kayode, has cautioned politicians in Ondo State against distracting Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa from delivering on his promises to the people.

While appealling to politicians in Ondo State to cease all forms of calumny against Governor Aiyedatiwa, he urged everyone in the state, particularly stakeholders, to embrace peace ahead of the November governorship election.

Speaking at the weekend, Kayode urged Governor Aiyedatiwa to maintain his focus on advancing the developmental agenda of the state, as well as building on the initiatives of his deceased boss, the late Rotimi Akeredolu.

Kayode, a former Minister of Defence, who called for a shift towards a development-oriented discourse, stressed that the appalling state of arterial roads across the state must be given urgent attention.

He said: “Allow Governor Aiyedatiwa to breathe. Allow him to settle down to work for our children and our elders. Allow him to continue where our late beloved governor stopped.

“The state and its people stand to gain nothing but pain, poverty, and penury if this incendiary politics of selfishness, hate, aggravation and deception continues.

“He (Aiyedatiwa) should not yield to the deliberate distraction. He must follow Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who despite onslaughts from left and right, continues to push his development agenda.

“Please concentrate on immediate issues like settlement of pending arrears of salaries and pensions, and I note with gladness that something is being done on these.

“Critical arterial roads in virtually every senatorial zone of the state require very urgent attention. We urge the governor to look at these urgently.”

“But how can he be able to do this if hidden and unclean hands continue to distract him? So, let us all give peace a chance so that the state can continue to thrive.

“We are lucky in the state that Governor Lucky is very much loved in Abuja and he knows what to do. He must leverage his goodwill and the goodwill enjoyed by the late and beloved Governor Akeredolu to bring more federal opportunities for the progress and edification of the state.


“We urge the governor not to be distracted by lame, worthless and beleaguered allegations and insinuations. These are of no moment or effect at this time. Let us give peace a chance. Breathe and allow the governor to breathe.”
