The All Progressives Congress, Ondo State Chapter has backed the decision of the State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, to sack aides attached to his deputy, Hon. Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
Premium Politics reported that Akeredolu through a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, announced the sack of the affected media aides on Tuesday.
While reacting to the development, the state party chairman, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, stated that the party was not shaken following the sack of the media aides and could not affect the chance of the party w inning the 2024 governorship election in the state.
Adetimehin said, “This has nothing to do with our party, we are waxing stronger every day. Those people who were sacked were the governor’s appointees and he can fire them at any time he wishes. Any appointee can be fired at any time it is a normal thing in government. It is not a party matter and it can’t affect our party in any way.”
In the meantime, the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has requested that Governor Akeredolu return to the state and cease operating from his residence in Ibadan.
This was disclosed through the Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Kennedy Peretei on Wednesday.
He said, “What Akeredolu has done by sacking the media aides of his deputy is simply a manifestation of the cacophony in the APC ahead of the 2024 governorship election in the state.
