Today, the Ondo State House of Assembly will convene in plenary to talk about the political climate in the state.
According to dependable sources, the legislators were expected to deliberate on the matter of the state’s executive branch. They might appoint Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, the deputy governor, as acting governor in the event that Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu becomes too sick to continue in his role as governor.
The governor is still recovering at his home in the capital city of Oyo State, Ibadan.

However, a source mentioned that there may be disagreements among the lawmakers regarding the Aiyedatiwa issue, which is why some may not be present at today’s sitting. He also revealed that the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress had given its approval for today’s meeting.
“The lawmakers are ready to meet today (Friday),” the source stated. The appointment of Lucky Aiyedatiwa as acting governor is one of the items on the agenda for the meeting. The APC national leadership is aware of and has approved the meeting, even though some lawmakers might not be present because they oppose Aiyedatiwa’s appointment as acting governor. Thus, Aiyedatiwa may be named acting governor today.
When contacted, Mr. Olatunji Oshati, the Chairman of the House Committee on Information, confirmed the development but was unable to clarify whether or not Aiyedatiwa would be named an acting governor.
According to an Assembly spokesman, “As directed by our national leaders, the House will sit on the matter and review the political situation today. That’s all I can tell you for now. There is something like that.” Though not required, the House has probably made the declaration. I don’t want to predict the meeting’s conclusion in advance. Should it be probable, you are also cordially invited.
Concurrently, rumors circulated that President Bola Tinubu would meet Assembly members in Abuja today to discuss the ongoing crisis.
