The All Progressives Congress (APC) has ordered a halt to moves to impeach the state deputy governor, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa, as part of ongoing efforts to settle the political deadlock in Ondo State.
On the other hand, the party has formed a reconciliation committee to break the impasse between the governor and his deputy.
Speaking at the inauguration of the committee led by former Kastina State governor Aminu Bello Masari on Friday, APC national chairman Abdullahi Umar Ganduje said their terms of reference are: “To interface and engage with all contending partner(s) with a view to gathering facts and circumstances surrounding the lingering impeachment process of the deputy governor.
“To advise the party on the most amicable ways of handling the lingering issues leading to the impeachment process of the deputy governor.
“To make necessary recommendations to the party on resolution of issues and any other matter that may come up in the course of the assignment.”
Mr. Ganduje emphasised the importance of ensuring a good working relationship between the governor and his deputy, and expressed confidence that the committee’s members, who have vast experience in public service, will be able to achieve the goal.
The committee has one week after its inauguration to submit its recommendation.
The Committee Members are as follows:
H.E. Aminu Bello Masari – Chairman
H.E. Gboyega Oyetola
H.E. Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar
H.E. Martins Elechi
H.E. Obafemi Hamzat
Sen. Tilley Gyado
