Ondo State Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has restated his commitment to work with the legislature to reposition the government on the right track.
This came as an aftermath of President Bola Tinubu’s meeting with Ondo state officials, the All Progressives Congress members and other stakeholders over the political logjam in the state in Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday.
The deputy governor pledged to maintain the status quo and unite all the warring factions, according to Vanguard.
He said, “I want to say that I pledge to all of you that I embrace every one of you. I put behind all that has happened before now. I’ve let go and also let God, just as the President has advised us.
“And I want to say that no offence, no guile in my mind whatsoever. All that has happened is politics. Impeachment is part of politics. If you survive it, it is also politics. It has come. I’ve survived it and every other thing in his past.”
He added, “It is one big family and our father has intervened to bring all the children together to remain under the same family. With the position that I occupy, I will carry every one of you along in every decision that needs to be taken.
“And everything that we do we will work together. The executive and the legislature will work together to ensure that governance is on the right track.”
He pleaded with all members of the State Executive Council to cooperate with the governor and himself to “bring the dividend of democracy” to the people of Ondo State.
