BREAKING: Drama as Gov Aiyedatiwa blocks Ondo APC gov’ship aspirants from meeting Tinubu

Platinumpost reports that Tinubu arrived Akure, the state capital on Wednesday, to condole with the government and people over the passing of former Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.

The tradition, according to Akinterinwa, is that party members will converge at the airport to welcome the president to the state.

The APC chieftain, however, alleged that Aiyedatiwa prevented them from seeing the president.

He described the directive from Governor Aiyedatiwa against their coming to the airport as undemocratic, disrespectful and unreasonable.

Describing Governor Aiyedatiwa as an “ignorant mind”, Akinterinwa alleged that the governor had planned to “unleash mayhem” on other aspirants and their supporters if they had gone to the airport.

But reacting to Akinterinwa’s claims, spokesperson to the governor, Ebenezer Adeniyan, said President Tinubu was on a private visit to Ondo State and not for political campaigns.
