Masari leads C’ttee to resolve Akeredolu, Ayedatiwa conflict in Ondo

Concerned about the political situation in Ondo state, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, has appointed the immediate-past Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari, as the chairman of a 9-member committee to resolve the impasse between the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, and his estranged deputy, Lucky Ayedatiwa.

In a statement sent in the early hours of Thursday by his press secretary, Edwin Olofu, Ganduje expressed concern that the situation, if not addressed swiftly, “may lead to further disaffection among party faithful.”

“Therefore, in order to avert the misunderstanding, and after critical observation of the situation, the National Secretariat has decided to wade in, with a view to fostering better understanding that may likely lead to an amicable resolution.

“In the light of the above, the National Chairman of the Party, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, CON, has set up a 9-Man Committee under the able leadership of the erstwhile Governor of Katsina State, His Excellency, Rt Hon Aminu Bello Masari, CFR, to not only intervene, but also see to the peaceful reconciliation of all parties involved”, said Olofu.

According to him, the Party assured all that the committee will interact and dialogue with all stakeholders in the state, based on mutual respect, with a view to finding a lasting solution.

“The National Secretariat urges all parties to remain calm, and extend all the necessary cooperation and support to the Masari-led Committee”.
