The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress has set up a 9-man committee to resolve the imbroglio between the Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, and his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
The Committee, chaired by a former governor of Katsina State, Hon. Aminu Bello Masari, was mandated to not only intervene, but also see to the peaceful reconciliation of all parties involved.
According to Leadership, the Chief Press Secretary to the APC National Chairman, Edwin Olofo, disclosed the party’s decision in a statement issued this Thursday night in Abuja.
Olofo said the national secretariat of the party was really concerned about the unfortunate political situation in Ondo State, which if not quickly averted, may lead to further disaffection among party faithful.
“Therefore, in order to avert the misunderstanding, and after critical observation of the situation, the National Secretariat has decided to wade in, with a view to foster better understanding that may likely lead to amicable resolution.
“The party therefore assures all and sundry, that through this Committee, it will interact and dialogue with all the stakeholders in the state, based on mutual respect, with a view to finding a lasting solution.
“The National Secretariat urges all parties to remain calm, and extend all the necessary cooperation and support to the Masari-led Committee,” he stated.
