Following Rotimi Akeredolu’s death, Lucky Aiyedatiwa was inaugurated in as governor of Ondo State, but just 24 hours later, a few of the previous governor’s supporters and associates submitted their resignation.

Following a protracted battle with cancer, Akeredolu passed away in Germany on Wednesday, December 27, 2023. His deputy, who had been serving in an acting capacity, was sworn in as the state’s new governor shortly after his passing was reported.

Nevertheless, at least five of the former governor’s assistants have withdrawn their resignation letters since Aiyedatiwa’s public appearance.

The Commissioner for Infrastructure, Lands, and Housing stated in his letter of resignation that his conscience guided his choice to step down.

“With effect from today, December 28, 2023, I hereby tender my resignation as Commissioner for Infrastructure, Lands, and Housing.”

“Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN, CON, my leader and loving employer, joined the Saint Triumphant, hence this decision is rooted in my conscience.

Raimi expressed his gratitude to the state’s wonderful people and our beloved Arakunrin for giving him the chance to serve in his cabinet as Commissioner for Infrastructure, Lands, and Housing, Senior Special Assistant on Lands and Infrastructure, and Special Adviser on Lands, Works, and Infrastructure.

The Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties and Strategy, Adebowale, expressed his gratitude to Akeredolu and the state’s citizens for letting him to serve them in his letter.

It has been claimed that Governor Aiyedatiwa has begun looking for a capable and obedient deputy to collaborate with.

ThePunch reports that the governor has been engaging with state and national political players in an effort to find a trustworthy and cooperative deputy.

The governor might select his deputy from the state’s center or northern senatorial districts, according to a source who spoke to the publication under the condition of anonymity.
