Tinubu Asks Akeredolu’s Deputy to Sign Resignation Letter

Dec 2, 2023 | Entertainment, News


President Bola Tinubu was reported to have demanded an unsigned resignation letter from the embattled deputy governor of Ondo state, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, who was facing impeachment threat from some lawmakers over a call to declare him as the acting governor of the state.

The political crisis in the state emanated from the absence of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu as a result of his prolonged illness, this led to the call from the supporters of the deputy governor to be declared an acting governor.

President Bola Tinubu and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had to step in to arrest the situation. All stakeholders, including Aiyedatiwa, were invited to a meeting with the president, where they were told to maintain the status quo.
