Ondo Political Crisis: Coalition Of Interest Groups Salute Ondo State Leaders And Citizens

The Ondo State Coalition of Interest Groups expresses deep gratitude to our fellow citizens, both within the country and abroad, for their unwavering dedication to democracy and the restoration of governance in Ondo State.

We recognize and appreciate the collective voices that have advocated for an end to proxy governance during the absence of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in Ondo State over the past few months.

We are particularly pleased with the display of love for our dear state and the active participation of all individuals in the various engagements organized by the group, hosted by the Convener Dr. Kayode Ajulo, OON, SAN. We cannot but salute the commitment of numerous civic organizations within and outside Ondo State, who consistently demanded the supremacy of the rule of law and constitutional order during the political crisis caused by those who sought personal gains from the unfortunate illness of Governor Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu.

We must also acknowledge the invaluable role played by our esteemed elder statesmen, led by Pa Reuben Fasoranti, and the Ondo Redemption Front (ORF), patriotic members of the Ondo State Executive Council led by Engr Radar Obe among other groups.

While normalcy is gradually being restored in Ondo State following the intervention of President Bola Tinubu, we emphasize that the journey is not yet complete.

We urge the government, under the leadership of Acting Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, to ensure the restoration of hope to our people by resuming full-time governance and making up for the lost ground in the past months.

We implore stakeholders in Ondo State, especially politicians within the ruling party, to provide the necessary support to the government for the overall well-being of our people. This collaborative effort ensures the continuity of governance and stability in our beloved state.

Together, we exemplify the strength of civic engagement and the power of a united citizenry. Let this serve as a testament to the resilience of our democracy.

Ondo State remains a source of immense pride.
