Akeredolu did not endorse you, stop exploiting his name – Late Gov’s CPS to Aiyedatiwa


The former Chief Press Secretary to late ex-Governor
Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Richard Olatunde on Wednesday cautioned Governor Lucky
Aiyedatiwa against leveraging the late governor’s name for political advantage.

 

Olatunde emphasised that both Akeredolu’s family and his
loyal supporters across the state have strongly opposed Aiyedatiwa’s alleged
deceptive strategies aimed at gaining a political edge within the party.

 

Aiyedatiwa had during his official declaration to run for
governor, stated that his late boss had given him his blessing and expressed a
desire for him to succeed in office.

 

According to Olatunde, there existed a strained relationship
between Akeredolu and Aiyedatiwa up until the former’s passing.

 

He added that the late former governor was taken aback by
what he perceived as a betrayal by Aiyedatiwa, leaving a sour note in their
relationship.

 

“While we acknowledge that the political atmosphere in the
state is intensifying, we want to unequivocally state that the late Governor
did not anoint or express a desire for Aiyedatiwa to succeed him.

 

“On the contrary, the relationship between the late governor
and Governor Aiyedatiwa became strained and distant until his passing.

 

“Despite attending to official matters and meeting people
from Akure, the late Governor intentionally kept Mr Aiyedatiwa, who was the
Deputy governor at the time, away from him in Ibadan.

 

“Our late Governor was deeply disappointed and regretful of
certain behaviours and character traits displayed by Aiyedatiwa during his
health challenges, which ultimately led to his passing.”
