I have no plan to resign – Ondo Deputy Governor Aiyedatiwa

The Ondo State deputy governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has told the people of the state to disregard a purported resignation letter of his currently circulating in the state.

Aiyedatiwa’s statement followed speculations of a discreet plot to remove him from office if he failed to resign voluntarily.

The deputy governor is reportedly facing threats from influential politicians loyal to the governor, pressuring him to step down or face impeachment.

This comes after he served as acting governor for about four months while Akeredolu was in an undisclosed German hospital.

His statement reads partly: “My attention has been drawn to a rumour of a purported pre-signed resignation letter, signed by me, being circulated in the public domain.

“I wish to state that I, Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, have not, do not intend, and will not sign or author any letter resigning my position as the duly elected Deputy Governor in a joint ticket with my principal, the Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu SAN, CON.

To this end, I urge the people of Ondo State, the State Assembly, and the general public to disregard such letter now and in the future.”
