The Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Olamide Oladiji, has said Deputy Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa is not yet ready for genuine reconciliation to warrant quashing the impeachment saga between him and the state legislators.
Oladiji, who disclosed this in Akure, the state capital, at the weekend, said Aiyedatiwa was yet to withdraw the cases against the Assembly as earlier agreed during a meeting with the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
A few weeks ago, Aiyedatiwa had approached the court to halt impeachment proceedings against him following allegations of gross misconduct levelled against him by the Assembly.
“The reconciliation process has to start with the deputy governor. He is the one who took us to court; we cannot reconcile ourselves when we have cases in court.
“Let him go to court and withdraw all these cases; then we would know that we are now in for genuine reconciliation.
“As far as the House of Assembly is concerned, we are not doing anything. The cases are in court and we would follow due process; we are following up on the cases in court.”
On the purported division among members of the Assembly, Oladiji described it as false.
He stated: “When there is a political tussle like this, there can be insinuations and rumours, but in the House of Assembly, we are together. We told ourselves that it is an institution, and the institution must be protected. So, we are together.”
