Aiyedatiwa not ready for reconciliation, Jimoh Ibrahim tells Afenifere —

The Senator representing Ondo South senatorial district at the National Assembly, Jimoh Ibrahim, alleged that Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa has not shown genuine interest in reconciliation following the outcome of the April 20 governorship primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ibrahim, who was one of the aspirants that contested the shadow election with Aiyedatiwa, disclosed this while meeting with the national leaders of the pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, and Oba Olu Falae.
According to the aspirant, during the meeting called at the behest of the Afenifere leaders, the court should be allowed to decide the outcome of the primaries, which he had described as a mega fraud.
The Guardian gathered that the meeting was due to the crisis rocking the Ondo State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over Ibrahim’s resolve to drag the party and Aiyedatiwa before a Federal High Court.

It was gathered that leaders of the foremost Yoruba group had invited Ibrahim to the home of Pa Reuben Fasoranti to wade into the imbroglio in the party, which arose over the primary election of the APC.
However, Fasoranti and Oba Olu Falae are said to have appealed to Ibrahim to withdraw the case from the court and allow peace to reign in the party by accepting the reconciliatory move by Aiyedatiwa.
But the senator, who appreciated the two elders, informed them that Aiyedatiwa did not have a roadmap for true reconciliation, adding that the case should be decided in court.

He maintained that there was no primary election of the APC on the 20th of April, and the results declared by Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State were not the true position of things.
According to a stakeholder, the meeting, which was attended by Senator Tayo Alasoadura and other prominent stakeholders in the state, seemed to have failed to achieve its aim, as the senator did not promise Pa Fasoranti and others that he would back down on the legal tussle.
