The Ondo Solidarity Union (OSU) has slammed the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa for his insensitivity to his principal Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu during his ailing period.
According to an official statement released by the group coordinator, Kunle Akinfolarin asked Aiyedatiwa not save his explanation.
The statement read in part; “If the Deputy Governor hasn’t created a wedge between him and his boss, the narratives would have been needless.
“We read in the media, the unease that have pervaded the camp of Ondo State Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa upon the return of the State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu from medical vacation.
“Without being told, the trepidation that have enveloped the group of the deputy governor is expected following the various activities and overreaching attitudes Aiyedatiwa and his cronies displayed while the governor was on medical vacation abroad.
“Despite public knowledge of the deputy governor’s disloyalty, he has continued to defend the indefensible.
“The recent press statement signed and released by his Press Secretary lacked both bone and meat. It was empty in scope, logic and facts. The statement was gasping for credibility because of the lack of evidence and truth to give it life.
“Aiyedatiwa’s denials, notwithstanding, we are interested in setting the facts right and awakening the minds of the good people of Ondo State and the general public to interrogate the truth and sieve reality from shallow denials.
“It’s surprising that Aiyedatiwa finds it rather convenient to discover his voice anytime he’s exposed out in the public place. Discerning minds would wonder what happened to his voice when he was asked to set the record straight over the state of his boss’ health at time the fake report of the Governor’s death was being spread.
“Did Aiyedatiwa not employ the services of one Akeredolu O.N; Ebenezer Adeniyan; Yemi Fashipe; Allen Sowore, Tolu Babaleye and Biyi Boroye to coordinate and execute media attacks against the governor?
“Did Aiyedatiwa not threatened the Accountant General of the State to disclose the earnings and spendings of the governor to him? Did he not meet with the Accountant General in Abuja?
“Did Aiyedatiwa not abuse the Governor in the presence of one of the protocol officers, claiming that the governor couldn’t have signed his file because he was bed-ridden?
“Would the deputy Governor deny that he didn’t plant story in SaharaReporters to lie about the health situation of the Governor?
“When the fake news of the Governor’s death was being spread around, why did the deputy Governor refused to issue a statement to refute it despite meeting with the governor physically a day before?
“Did the deputy governor not tell people that his boss could only be flown into the country in a medical plane?
“When was he celebrating and rejoicing over his announcement as acting governor when the governor traveled for his medical vacation?
“The above questions are begging for answer. The truth about treachery is that, it creates a false sense of shield that gives the impression of clandestine move even when you are a prisoner in the plain sight of the people.”
