APC moves to reconcile Akeredolu, Deputy, inaugurates reconciliation committee

In last-minute efforts to resolve the political impasse in Ondo state, the national leadership of the ruling All progressives Congress APC has asked all parties to stay action on moves to impeach the state deputy governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

The state Assembly had within the week commenced impeachment proceedings against the deputy, days after the return of the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu to the country.
Consequently, the party has inaugurated a nine-member reconciliation committee to resolve the issue.

Inaugurating the committee headed by the former Katsina state governor, Aminu Bello Masari, APC national chairman, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, stressed the need to ensure a sound working relationship between the governor and his deputy.

He expressed optimism that members of the committee with vast experiences in public service have the capacity to achieve the goal.

Ganduje said; “APC as a political party, we are interested in seeing that there is a peaceful coexistence and a good working relationship between the Governor of Ondo State and his deputy.

“In order to see how we can solve this problem, it is important to set a reconciliation committee. A reconciliation committee must be comprised of people who have relevant experience, cognitive knowledge on the issue before us’, hesaid.

Aiyedatiwa is under the threat of impeachment by the House over allegations of gross misconduct and has been served with notice of the allegations levelled against him by the lawmakers.

But the deputy governor obtained an order from the Federal High Court in Abuja to compel the lawmakers to suspend the process.
