Tinubu’s intervention in Ondo crisis was a blunder – senior lawyer, Ajulo

In a recent statement on Arise Television, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Kayode Ajulo, expressed his disapproval of President Bola Tinubu’s involvement in the leadership crisis in Ondo State. The legal expert criticized Tinubu’s intervention, arguing that it overlooked the crucial role of the Attorney General.

The intervention occurred on November 25, as reported by The PUNCH, with Tinubu urging opposing factions in the state’s prolonged political crisis to embrace peace and maintain the status quo.

In response, Deputy Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa committed to inclusivity, assuring that all commissioners and officials would be involved in governing the state. Additionally, Speaker Oladiji Olamide vowed to halt any impeachment moves against Aiyedatiwa.

During the meeting, which included members of the All Progressives Congress, Aiyedatiwa emphasized unity, stating, “It is one big family, and our father has intervened to bring all the children together to remain under the same family.” He pledged to work collaboratively with both the executive and legislative branches for effective governance.

However, Kayode Ajulo questioned the wisdom of President Tinubu’s involvement, particularly the alleged exclusion of the Attorney General.

Expressing respect for the Attorney General’s legal acumen, Ajulo asserted, “I am very sure and I want to believe he is not being carried along to advise him properly.” He contended that the President’s intervention deviated from constitutional provisions and advocated for allowing due process to take its course in addressing the Ondo State crisis, emphasizing the sophistication of the state’s people and the importance of adhering to the right procedures.
