‘Intervene in Akeredolu, Aiyedatiwa’s crisis’ – Fasoranti tells Tinubu

Following the political crisis rocking Ondo State over the continued feud between Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and his deputy, Aiyedatiwa, the leader of Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, and some elders in Ondo State have appealed to President Bola Tinubu to urgently intervene in the situation.

Fasoranti, who led other elder statesmen under the aegis of Ondo State Elders and Leaders, disclosed that the political crisis, particularly the absence of the governor, has been affecting governance in the state.

A communiqué signed by the Afenifere leader and the group’s secretary, Bakitta Bello, after an emergency meeting in Akure, the state capital, asserted that some people have hijacked the governance of the state.

The elders also maintained that if the development is not quickly addressed, it will no doubt affect the preparation of the 2024 budget.

While decrying the absence of the state in crucial national events due to the crisis, the elder statesmen stated that there is no clear direction within the state’s civil service.

The communique states: “The Elders also call on the state and national leadership of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress, to provide the required guide to those in government as well as ensure discipline amongst their fold.

“The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is hereby passionately called upon to intervene and end the present constitutional crisis in the state, to avoid the looming breakdown of law and order in Ondo State.”
