The National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has assured that Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state would soon resume duties.
According to Vanguard, Omisore gave this assurance when he paid a “solidarity visit” met with the Acting Governor, Hon. Lucky Ayedatiwa in Akure on Friday.
He assured the government and people of the Sunshine State that there should be no need for alarm, but prayers for Mr. Governor, after sufficient rest.
The APC chieftain said the National Secretariat regretted the twist in the recent wish and prayer of the National Chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, for the governor.
He insisted that at no time did the National Chairman said the governor is incapacitated, lamenting that some section of the press only opted to be mischievous and reported “what they feel makes news”.
The visit, he explained, was meant to dispel the misapprehension of the sincere and noble statement, and put the record straight.
“Mr. Chairman only urged people to pray for the quick recovery of your governor; not on account of being incapacitated.
“Our visit, therefore, is to reinforce the position of the national secretariat that we only prayed for the quick recovery of Arakunrin Akeredolu SAN, and not otherwise”, Omisore stressed.
He further assured that the national secretariat is on the same page with the State, and would always offer support, when necessary.
Earlier, the State Chairman, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, had dismissed the insinuation that the state chapter is in crisis.
He insisted that the party is as united as ever, under the leadership of Arakunrin Akeredolu.
Adetimehin explained that the State is still savouring it’s enviable contributions to the party’s victory at the last presidential election, and, therefore, has no place for bickerings.
Responding, the Acting Governor, Hon. Lucky Ayedatiwa, expressed appreciation to the visiting team, for taking the pain to visit on solidarity ground.
The National Secretary was accompanied by the Deputy National Secretary, Mr. Festus Fuanter, National Vice Chairman (North Central), Hon. Bawa Muazu, and National Vice Chairman (South West), Hon. Isaacs Kekemeke.
