Ondo: Socio-political group alleges attempt to undermine peace truce


A socio-political group in Ondo State, Redemption Initiative, has raised concerns about alleged attempts by certain politicians to undermine the peace truce brokered by President Bola Tinubu between Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and his deputy, Hon. Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

The group claims that supporters of the deputy governor are actively resisting the peaceful resolution and have even sought legal counsel to pursue the doctrine of necessity, aiming to declare Akeredolu incapacitated and Aiyedatiwa as the Acting Governor.

OSRI further alleges that Aiyedatiwa, despite agreeing to sign an undated resignation letter as part of the truce, has contradicted the agreement and continues to exercise his authority as deputy governor.

The group emphasizes the importance of upholding the peace agreement mediated by President Tinubu and calls on Aiyedatiwa to respect its terms. Additionally, they urge Aiyedatiwa’s supporters to refrain from actions that could further polarize the state’s political landscape.

“We are very aware that it was true that Aiyedatiwa was asked to sign an undated letter of resignation in the Abuja resolution in the presence of the president.

“But to our surprise, the deputy governor attended and chaired the state Executive Council meeting on Thursday and told the cabinet a different story.”

“We want to once again restate that peace must reign in Ondo State. We repeat It is time for peace to reign.

“We want to urge the deputy governor to respect the terms of the peace brokered by the presidency,” the group said in a statement
