Tinubu’s intervention can’t resolve Ondo APC crisis – PDP

As the process of resolving the lingering political crisis in Ondo State is ongoing, the state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party has said the intervention of President Bola Tinubu could not resolve the crisis.

Tinubu had met with the leadership of the State House of Assembly and the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state, at the State House, Abuja, late at night on Friday, in a bid to resolve the crisis.

The opposition party, through its Publicity Secretary, Kennedy Peretei, described the meeting as a mere window dressing, stressing that if Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, does not return to the state, there won’t be any meaningful resolution of the crisis.

He said, “Let us pray that the presidential intervention will not go the way of the Bello Masari Reconciliation Committee set up by APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje. After several trips to Abuja at taxpayers’ expense, both parties returned to court after promising to withdraw all cases.

“Again, major stakeholders in the APC and Ondo State Government were at the Villa to iron out their intractable differences.

“From what we have read about the outcome, Tinubu’s intervention is a mere window dressing. Out of respect for his office, the impeachment of the Deputy Governor will no longer see the daylight, but as long as Akeredolu remains in hiding, it is not yet Uhuru, the cat and mouse race will continue.”
