The Ondo House of Assembly has agreed to suspend the ongoing move to impeach the state deputy governor, Lucky Ayiedatiwa.
The spokesman of the House, Mr Olatunji Oshati in a chat with newsmen said the decision was reached after a closed-door meeting with the National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
Aiyedatiwa had been under impeachment threat by the House over allegations of gross misconduct and has been served with notice of allegations levelled against him.
The meeting which lasted for about two hours had in attendance members of the party’s NWC, the Aminu Bello Masari-led 9-man Reconciliation Committee, party state chairman, Ade Adetimilehin and 18 of the 22 APC lawmakers led by the Speaker, Oladeji Olamide.
The chairman of the reconciliation committee and former Katsina state Governor, Aminu Bello Masari said that the national leadership was committed to finding a lasting solution to the crisis in the state.
