The Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Olamide Oladiji, has shed light on the circumstances leading to the request for an undated letter of resignation from the embattled Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

Clarifying the situation during a plenary session following a recent meeting with President Bola Tinubu, the Speaker disclosed that the strategic move is a critical measure to avert Aiyedatiwa’s impeachment.

During the meeting, key resolutions were outlined, with three enforcers, including the state chairman of the APC, Ade Adetimehin, the Speaker himself, and the Secretary to the State Government, Catharine Oladunni Odu, appointed to oversee the deputy governor’s compliance with the resolutions.

Addressing the public, Oladiji stated that the consensus reached during the high-profile meeting appreciated the imperative of peace and the maintenance of the status quo.

The resolutions included terminating all impeachment proceedings and withdrawing related court cases, maintaining the State Executive Council, and securing an undated letter of resignation from the Deputy Governor.
