Ondo APC Chair pledges to resolve crisis following Tinubu’s intervention
Ondo APC Chair has pledged to ensure that the commitments are implemented, following intervention by President Bola Tinubu in the political crisis in the state, which led to the conclusion that Akeredolu and Aiyedatiwa remains Governor and Deputy Governor respectively
After President Bola Tinubu’s intervention on Friday in the ongoing political crisis in Ondo State due to the disagreement that has been going on for about a month between factions loyal to the Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), and his Deputy, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, the State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ade Adetimehin, has pledged that the party will make sure all involved follow the commitments made.
According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale earlier today, this means that Governor Akeredolu will remain the governor of the state. In contrast, Aiyedatiwa will remain as the deputy governor, and members of the State Executive Council will continue their duties.
Adetimehin added that President Tinubu’s intervention had brought back sanity to the political imbalance that had plagued the state in the past few months.

While expressing his gratitude to the president for his prompt intervention, he expressed joy at the result of the deliberations, proclaiming that the party will remain a watchdog to ensure that the new commitments are implemented.
“Today is my happiest moment. And I know sanity has come to Ondo State. So, on behalf of the teeming supporters of our party in the state, we appreciate our leader, Mr. President.
PDP has crumbled in the state; virtually, they decamp every day. The only problem we have is the one you have solved for us today. And that problem has been resolved permanently”.
