Ondo Facing ‘Yaradua Quagmire’ – Shehu Sani Speaks On Commissioners Forging Akeredolu’s Signature

 

Nigerian politician and former lawmaker, Shehu Sani has reacted to the political drama playing out in Ondo state between the Governor, Rotii Akeredolu and his deputy.

 

Recall that since returning to Nigeria, Akeredolu has continued to governor the state from Oyo state.

 

Sani said Ondo State was facing the situation of late President Musa Yar’Adua.

 

Akeredolu has been out of office for months due to ill health.

 

The governor had resumed duties in the first week of September, after returning from a three-month medical leave in Germany.

 

Following his resumption, the governor has been in Oyo State where he is allegedly recuperating.

 

While the governor remained out of view, a political drama was underway in the state as the House of Assembly launched a move to impeach his Deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, for alleged disloyalty to Akeredolu.

 

Amid the crisis in the state, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Kayode Ajulo alleged that some Commissioners and government officials in the state were forging Akeredolu’s signature on official documents.

 

But, Akeredolu, while speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, described the allegation as “utterly preposterous and ludicrous,” while challenging him to present concrete evidence.

 

However, Sani tweeted: “Ondo State is in the ‘Yaradua quagmire’ situation.”
