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 is evacuating all trucks and trailers parked on the Abuja-Kaduna-Kano Expressway
The Federal Ministry of Works and Housing has said it is evacuating trucks and trailers from the Abuja-Kaduna-Kano Expressway to ease road congestion. The chairman of the inter-ministerial committee on evacuation of truck and caravan on the right side of the road, Folorunsho Esan, disclosed this during an inspection of the road on Friday. Mr. Esan, who is also the Director of Roads, Construction and Rehabilitation, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, said the ministry would create a temporary park along Tafaa Kaduna road for vehicles to park. According to him, the park, which would host about 500 trucks, would help solve road problems and insecurity in the area. “According to the orders of the President, the Minister of Works and Housing has formed a committee to evacuate the trucks from the Abuja-Kaduna-Kano road so that the contractors can fully take over the works on the road. “In addition, road users have free access without bottlenecks. So we are here to check the available options if trucks can be moved now. “One of the obvious bottlenecks is in Tafa and fortunately we have an empty plot bought by FERMA, although they could not do anything do with it. “However, we will move Tafa’s trucks to that lot after some improvements are made to the ground to prevent the trailers from sinking,” he said. Esan added that the commission will also look for land elsewhere if trucks cause traffic congestion. He said several unions like NATO, NURTW, Tanker Drivers and others were continuing to work with the government to get rid of their trucks soon. He said that according to the commission, all trucks must be off the road by the end of the year. Kamal Kaawache, site manager of the Julius Berger Nigeria Section 1 of the Abuja-Kaduna-Kano road project, said the rock fill of the park would be suitable for the weight of the trucks. He said that due to the challenges of the new park, Bitumen Stabilized Materials, BSM will also need to be introduced to make the park stronger for truck and caravan parking. In response, Jere District Director Yusuf Suleiman promised to provide the necessary support to the ministry and those involved, which would cause the permanent evacuation of the trucks and trailers from the road. Suleiman Danzaki, Senior Special Assistant on Intergovernmental and International Relations and Road Transport Officer, National Union NURTW, said the committee must avoid a situation where traffic is disrupted after the park is commissioned. He recalled that the then Kashiri municipality, now Kagarko municipality, bought the park, but it was not used for reasons beyond the municipality’s control. Also, Abdullahi Haruna, a representative of the Kaduna Refinery Tanker Drivers Association, said the park should be user-friendly by providing basic facilities such as borehole, toilets and canteens. Haruna promised that tanker drivers are ready to cooperate with the commission to evacuate the trucks from the road. “If we have space to park, we will definitely not see trucks on the road, and if there is space, we are ready to leave the road even within a week,” he said.
