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.

Morocco Experiences Most Devastating Earthquake

Moroccans mourned the victims of Sunday’s devastating earthquake, which killed more than 2,000 people, as rescue teams found survivors trapped in the rubble of flattened villages.

At least 2,012 people were killed and more than 2,059 injured in the country’s worst earthquake ever, according to the latest official figures.

Friday’s 6.8-magnitude earthquake struck 72 kilometers (5 miles) southwest of the tourist center of Marrakech, destroying entire villages in rural areas.

“I lost everything,” said Lahcen, a resident of the mountain village of Moulay Brahim, whose wife and four children were killed.

Rescue workers found the bodies of Lahcen’s three daughters in the ruins of the previous home, but still did not find the bodies of his wife and son. “Now I can do nothing, I just want to leave the world and mourn.”

Soldiers and rescue services have been trying to reach remote mountain villages, where victims are still feared to be trapped.

The province of Al-Haouz, where the epicenter was located, had the highest number of dead (1,293), followed by the province of Taroudant with
52 people.

– The first funeral –

Bouchra, another resident of Moulay Brahim, dried tears with her scarf as she watched men dig graves to bury the victims.

“My cousin’s grandchildren are dead,” he said aloud.

“I saw the devastation of the earthquake live and I’m still shaking. It’s like a fireball that has consumed everything in its path,” he said.

“Everyone here has lost a family, whether in our village or elsewhere in the region,” he added.
Fatema Satir, a resident of Marrakech, told AFP that many were sleeping on the streets for fear that their houses would collapse.

“Look where all these people sleep. We can’t be helped, our houses are broken, some destroyed, like my daughter’s house, which was destroyed. We are in a chaotic situation.”

Authorities declared three days of national mourning, and several countries, including Israel, France, Spain, Italy and the United States, offered aid.

Neighboring Algeria, which has rocky relations with Morocco, opened airspace closed for two years to flights carrying humanitarian aid and the wounded.

– “Helping years” –

The Red Cross warned that it could take years to repair the damage.

“This is not about a week or two… We believe the response will take months, if not years,” Hossam Elsharkawi, the organization’s Middle East and North Africa director, said in a statement.

The quake almost completely destroyed the village of Tafeghaghte, 60 kilometers southwest of Marrakech, with the epicenter only about 50 kilometers away, an AFP team said, with buildings still standing. “My three grandchildren and their mother are dead,” said Omar Benhanna, 72.

“They’re still under the trash. It wasn’t that long ago that we played together.”

Residents were burying around 70 victims in a nearby cemetery on Saturday when the funeral service was interrupted by shouts and screams.

– The authorities are still being mobilized to accelerate rescue operations and evacuate the injured, the Ministry of the Interior announced on Saturday evening.

The earthquake was also felt in the coastal cities of Rabat, Casablanca, Agadir and Essaouira, where many panicked residents took to the streets in the middle of the night, fearing that their homes would collapse.

The earthquake is the deadliest in Morocco since the 1960 earthquake that devastated Agadir, killing more than 12,000 people, or about a third of the city’s population at the time.
