Ondo Assembly Asks Aiyedatiwa To Withdraw Suits

The Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has been asked by the State House of Assembly, on Wednesday, to withdraw all the lawsuits filed against the impeachment process as part of the condition for settling the matter.

The Assembly had on Tuesday halted the impeachment process against the embattled deputy governor, following the intervention of the national leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress, who met with some members of the Assembly and some party leaders in Abuja.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Mr Olatunji Oshati, said, “The Speaker expressed the desire of the House leadership to further consult with members of the House cutting across party lines, on the political solution as proposed by the APC.

“The House, therefore, hopes that in the same spirit of genuine wish for a political solution, the deputy governor would take immediate steps to withdraw the multiple court cases he filed over the same impeachment.

“This would allow the stakeholders to freely discuss the settlement proposals and prevent actions or comments over a matter that is still sub judice.”

Aiyedatiwa had filed suits both in Abuja and Akure to challenge his impeachment.

Meanwhile, the Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, on Wednesday, lambasted an aide to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, Dr Doyin Odebowale, over his comments on the governor’s whereabouts.

Odebowale, who is the governor’s Special Adviser on Special Duty and Strategy, had while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today, on Tuesday, justified why Akeredolu had not returned to Ondo State after he came back from his prolonged medical vacation in Germany.

Responding to Odebowale’s comments on Wednesday, the Ondo PDP Publicity Secretary, Kennedy Peretei, described Odebowale’s submission as illogical.
