ONDO: Akeredolu not involved in move to impeach deputy – Adegboruwa

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, says he does not believe that the Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, is involved in the move by the state House of Assembly to impeach his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

The Ondo State House of Assembly has levelled different allegations against Aiyedatiwa as part of the impeachment move against the deputy governor.

Aiyedatiwa was the acting governor until September 7, 2023, when Governor Rotimi Akeredolu returned from three months of medical leave in Germany, with many pointing accusing fingers on the governor over the impeachment move.

“You know how politics go in Nigeria, people just cook up all manner of allegations in respect with whatever political allegations that they have.

“I know his excellency, the governor of Ondo state as a man of courage, transparency and accountability. I am sure he is not involved in all this.

“I believe that in the course of time, he will play his fatherly role and call all the gladiators to order and let governance take its centre stage in that state. I don’t think that this is the time for this kind of political tension,” said Adegboruwa.

The SAN proposed that for progress and unification to occur, the political landscape must reach a point where those in positions of authority must find a way to set aside their personal interests in order to advance government.
