Tinubu, Akeredolu End Political Cold war

By: Ade Adeleke

Report says the National Leader of the ruling APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State who have been on cold war over the party’s governorship primary election of 2016, today resolved their political differences.

The reconciliation path was initiated by a former APC national vice chairman southwest, Chief Pius Akinyelure who had made several attempts to bring the duo together but had suffered setbacks until late last week when Akeredolu flew to Abuja to honor Akinyelure’s invitation to meet with the former Lagos governor.

It was gathered that the two men met, expressed their grievances and resolved to work together in the overall interest of the party particularly in Ondo State, where the party suffered heavy defeat in the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

Report says, Tinubu assured Akeredolu that “the war was over” and tasked him on the need to reconcile all different tendencies in the Ondo APC.

On his part, Governor Akeredolu thanked Tinubu and promised to work for the unity of the party.

One of the governor’s Special Assistants on New Media, Mr Allen Sowore confirmed that reconciliation had been achieved over the cold that had been threatening the second term ambition of Akeredolu.
