Ignore the claims of a one-party state: President tells Nigerians

Ondo: Tinubu’s intervention falsifies settlement, crisis is not over – PDP

The Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said President Bola Tinubu’s intervention in the crisis between Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and Deputy Governor Lucky Ayedatiwa is just window dressing.

The PDP said the political crisis is not over as Mr Akeredolu “remains in hiding”.

The party’s spokesperson, Kennedy Peretei, said this in a statement after Tinubu invited Ayedatiwa and other officials to the presidential villa in Abuja.

The meeting was aimed at resolving political feuds in the state following Akeredolu’s absence.

During the meeting, Tinubu called for a ceasefire while ensuring the impeachment issue was brought to an end.

In response, Peretei said that internal party turmoil was affecting the state’s governance.

He lamented that the public’s tax dollars were being spent on what he called wasted trips to Abuja.

“Let us hope that the President’s intervention does not go in the direction of the Bello Masari Reconciliation Committee set up by APC National Chairman Abdullahi Ganduje,” Peretei said.

“After several trips to Abuja at taxpayers’ expense, both parties returned to court despite promises to drop all cases.

“From what we have read of the results, Tinubu’s intervention is just window dressing.

“With all due respect to the office of the Deputy Governor, the impeachment of the Deputy Governor will no longer see the light of day, but as long as Mr. Akeredolu remains in hiding, it is not yet Uhuru and the cat-and-mouse competition will still continue.The siege is not yet over. I haven’t.”
