Ondo State Deputy Governor, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has debunked claims making rounds on social media that he has resigned his position.
He said this in a statement on Friday.
This comes following rumours of alleged plans to impeach him.
It would be recalled that the state governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, few days after his return from Germany ordered the sack of all media aides attached to the deputy governor, over alleged insubordination.
Despite moves by the governor to steam the tide, it is believed that the current upheaval in the state might be connected to the 2024 governorship election in the state.
Aiyedatiwa in the statement said ” My attention has been drawn to a rumour of a purported pre-signed
resignation letter, signed by me, being circulated in the public domain.
“I wish to state that I, Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, the Deputy Governor of Ondo state has not, does not intend and will not sign/author any letter resigning my position as the duly elected Deputy Governor in a joint ticket with my principal the Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu SAN, CON.
” I took an oath the day I was sworn in along with Mr. Governor on February 24th, 2021 to protect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on a
four (4) year mandate which terminates on February 23rd, 2025.
”I remain loyal to my Principal and I stand by the oath I took with the Bible to run the full cycle of the four-year tenure with Mr Governor.
He added ” To this end, I urge the people of Ondo State, the State Assembly and the general public to disregard such letter now and in the future.
