The Ondo State chapter of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), on Thursday, urged Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to temporarily delegate power to his Deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa amid concerns for his health and to avoid constitutional crises in the state.

It was gathered that the opposition party raised concern that the state has come to a standstill during Akeredolu’s absence, who is said to be recuperating from an undisclosed ailment by his aides while emphasising the need for the governor to legally transfer power to the Deputy governor to maintain the efficient administration of the state.

In a statement signed by the party chairman, Stephen Adewale warned that the state’s citizens and all of its sectors would suffer as a result of the protracted unpredictability surrounding its governance.

The statement reads, “It is disturbing that a man who once sat atop the highest chair at the Nigeria Bar Association, who actively participated in denouncing an ailing head of state when the latter refused to hand over to his deputy, and who has devoted his entire life to defending the constitution of the land would blatantly and deliberately flout that very constitution.

“In light of this, we implore Governor Akeredolu to safeguard his hard-earned reputation by handing over to his deputy in an acting capacity until he is capable of handling the state’s business. This is a duty and responsibility that Governor Akeredolu owes to himself, his party members, his family, and the good people of Ondo State.”
