Political commentators say that Akeredolu, who has an idea about his illness, must have planned it in advance by giving his son such enormous power to render the deputy governor’s office incapacitated. It was learned that Governor Akeredolu allegedly sidelined his deputy with the consent of his wife who was said to be against Aiyedatiwa as her husband’s successor. The governor’s wife is said to prefer Oke, who hails from Ilaje, Ondo South State, to take over from her husband because there might be a gubernatorial ticket. For example, former Governor Mimiko who hails from Ondo Central served for eight years, Akeredolu from Owo, Ondo North will be eight in 2025 so the ticket will automatically revert to Ondo South. Oke and Aiyedatiwa are from Ilaje, Akinterinwa from Ile Oluji, Akintelure who was Akeredolu runner up in 2012 is also from Ondo South. The Guardian concluded that since the governor’s wife had enormous influence in Ondo politics, she probably facilitated the appointment of the current deputy governor before they parted ways. This may not be due to the fact that he felt Aiyedatiwa was too ambitious. But attempts to remove Aiyedatiwa failed. The recent Speaker of the Ondo House of Assembly, Bamidele Oloyeloogun, was involved in a plot to initiate impeachment against Aiyedatiwa, but Oloyeloogun refused to participate. Another dangerous game was propaganda to the immediate past Speaker of the Ondo House of Assembly, whose forces wanted to agree on the impeachment of Aiyedatiwa. Unfortunately, the strategy didn’t work. The plan was to ensure that Oloyeloogun would start an impeachment against Aiyedatiwa, but the former speaker got chills from the move. The idea to force Oloyeloogun to resign was to bring in another speaker, perhaps from Owo, Ondo North, to remove Aiyedatiwa if Akeredolu does not return, but the new speaker, who was supposed to come from Owo, Ondo North, simply resigned. . to complete the governor’s mandate. The new speaker will then have no chance to contest the governorship primaries next year because he is not from Ondo South. Unfortunately, the plan failed. Therefore, Oloyeloogun’s signature on the resignation letter was forged and made available to the media, but a speaker in close proximity shouted that his signature was forged. Aiyedatiwa, who was informed of his impeachment plan, quickly contacted the party’s National Secretariat and the Presidency, who sent security agents to surround the Ondo State House of Representatives to prevent Aiyedatiwa from being impeached or Oloyeloogun resigning as Speaker. Following the March 18, 2023 State House of Assembly polls, the Oloyeloogun-led Ninth House of Assembly was dissolved and a new Speaker, Olamide Oladiji, who hailed from the Central Senate Zone, was elected. This shut down the plan to bring in another speaker from Owo North. to end Akeredolu’s tenure. But the plot to get rid of Aiyedatiwa did not stop, his bad guys also organized another plan claiming that he molested his wife which failed again. Opponents of Aiyedatiwa also believe that although he hails from Ilaje, the southernmost largest constituency, their argument is that Aiyedatiwa does not have the capacity to govern Ondo and is not as deeply rooted as Oke, Akinterinwa, Akintelure and others in Ondo region. politics For them, Aiyedatiwa also lacked the necessary leadership. For example, the deputy governor is said to have started presenting himself as the governor even though power has not yet been transferred to him, portraying the behavior of someone who can intimidate other members of the cabinet. Other party sources said Aiyedatiwa’s ordeal could worsen now that the governor is back. Whatever the case may be, experts are crossing their fingers to see how Akeredolu handles the various security reports and other intrigues and the inclusion of all over time.

FG to evacuate all trucks, trailers parked along Abuja-Kaduna-Kano Highway
The Federal Ministry of Works and Housing says it will evacuate trucks and trailers from the Abuja-Kaduna-Kano highway to ease congestion on the road.
Folorunsho Esan, Chairman, Inter-Ministerial Committee for Evacuation of Trucks and Trailers Along the Right of Ways, disclosed this during an inspection tour along the road on Friday.
Mr Esan, who is also the Director, Highways, Construction and Rehabilitation, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, said the ministry would provide a temporary park at Tafa, along Kaduna road, where the vehicles can park.
He said that the park which would accommodate about 500 trucks would help address the problems of road access and insecurity in the area.
“The Committee was set up by the Minister of Works and Housing with directive from the president for trucks to be evacuated from the Abuja-Kaduna-Kano road so that the contractors can take full possession of work on the road.
“Also, road users can have freed passage without bottlenecks. So we are here to inspect facilities that are available were trucks can now be moved to.
“One of the very pronounced bottleneck is in Tafa and fortunately enough, we have an empty land acquired by FERMA although they have not been able to do anything on it.
“But we are thinking of moving the trucks from Tafa to that plot of land after some ground improvements on the land for trailers to be able to stay without sinking,” he said.
Mr Esan added that the committee would also look for land in other areas along the road were trucks are causing congestion.
He said various unions like NATO, NURTW, Tanker Drivers and others have continued to collaborate with the government to move their trucks from the road anytime soon.
He said the committee envisages that by the end of the year, all trucks must have left the road.
Kamal Kaawache, Site Manager, Julius Berger Nigeria for the Section 1, Abuja-Kaduna-Kano Road Project, said a stone based filling of the park would be suitable considering the weight of the trucks.
He said that due to the challenges that the new park may bring, there is also the need to put in place a Bitumen Stabilised Materials, BSM, to make the park stronger for the trucks and trailers to park.
Responding, the District Head of Jere, Yusuf Suleiman, promised to give the ministry and concerned stakeholders necessary support that would lead to the permanent evacuation of trucks and trailers from the road.
Suleiman Danzaki, Senior Special Assistant to the National Union and Road Traffic Worker, NURTW, on Inter-governmental and International Matters, said the committee should avoid a situation where movement will be abandoned after the park is provided.
He recalled that a park was acquired by the then Kashir Local Government, now Kagarko Local Government, but was not put due to reasons beyond the control of the local government.
Also, Abdullahi Haruna, the representative of the Petroleum Tanker Driver Association, Kaduna Refinery, said that there was the need to make the park conducive for the users through the provision of basic facilities like borehole, toilets and canteens.
Mr Haruna pledged that petrol tanker drivers are ready to work with the committee to evacuate trucks from the road.
“If we have a space to park, definitely you will not see trucks on the road and we are ready to leave the road even within a week if provided space,” he said.
