APC Urges Ondo Governor to Foster Inclusive Governance After Primary Election Dispute

Following a lengthy meeting with aggrieved governorship aspirants from the recent primary election in Ondo State, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa to promote inclusive governance. The meeting, which lasted for about two hours, was aimed at fostering unity within the party ahead of the November governorship election.

Duro Meseko, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, revealed the outcomes of the meeting to journalists in Abuja. He explained that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party engaged in dialogue with both the governor and the aspirants to establish a united front for the upcoming election. Two key resolutions emerged from the meeting: the need for continued dialogue with the aspirants to find common ground, and the immediate implementation of inclusive governance by Governor Aiyedatiwa.

Meseko emphasized the importance of involving all aspirants, despite the fact that not all of them may be able to participate directly in the government. The goal is to ensure that their perspectives are considered to move the state forward.

The majority of the aspirants attended the peace meeting, with only one notable absence. The resolution of the ruling party was reaffirmed by Ade Adetimehin, the State Chairman of Ondo APC, who emphasized the importance of working together and minimizing division within the party.

Governor Aiyedatiwa, speaking after visiting the State House in Abuja, confirmed that the election did take place, contrary to some media reports. He expressed optimism about resolving disagreements among party members and emphasized the need for unity moving forward.
