Ondo state deputy governor, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has denied resigning his position.

Recall that the governor recently sacked all media aides to the deputy governor, over alleged insubordination.

Rumours of an alleged plan to impeach the deputy governor were rife during the week.

Also, the fear of possible dissolution of the state Executive Council has gripped members of the council.

However, the deputy governor in a statement issued and personally signed by him in Akure, the state capital, denied a purported pre-signed resignation letter said to be circulating in the public domain.

Aiyedatiwa in the statement said ” My attention has been drawn to a rumour of a purported pre-signed resignation letter, signed by me, being circulated in the public domain.

“I wish to state that I, Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, the Deputy Governor of Ondo
The state has not, does not intend and will not sign/author any letter resigning my
position as the duly elected Deputy Governor in a joint ticket with my principal the Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu SAN, CON.

” I took an oath the day I was sworn in along with Mr. Governor on February
24th, 2021 to protect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on a
four (4) year mandate which terminates on February 23rd, 2025.

” I remain loyal to my Principal and I stand by the oath I took with the Bible to run the full cycle of the four-year tenure with Mr Governor.

He added ” To this end, I urge the people of Ondo State, the State Assembly and the general public to disregard such letter now and in the future.
