Ondo State All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers on Monday in Abuja, pledged to ensure that Gov. Lucky Aiyedatiwa is returned as the state governor in its forthcoming governorship election slated for Nov. 16, 2024.

Oladiji specifically thanked Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, the party’s National Chairman for the role he played during the burial of Akeredolu who died recently, and for bringing peace to the state’s chapter.
“If not for your intervention, we wouldn’t have been enjoying the peace we enjoy in Ondo APC today,” the speaker said.

“We will work to ensure the continuity of his government and the APC in Ondo State.
“The state is at peace under its new governor contrary to what those outside it may say. Aiyedatiwa’s achievement just in few months in office is there for all to see.
“He has continued the legacy of the deceased governor and had been able to bring a synergy between the judiciary and the state executive,” the Speaker said.
Ganduje in his response, appreciated the lawmakers for the visit and expressed happiness that the party’s leadership was able to resolve the crisis that confronted its Ondo State chapter, adding that even in death, Akeredolu remained a great man.
Ganduje said though the party had planned a well articulated programme to produce a worthy governorship candidate, the cooperation of its members was critical to achieve a successful primary election to pick its governorship candidate.
