Ondo: Aiyedatiwa Sworn-in As Governor, Makes First Speech


The Deputy Governor of Ondo state, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, who was acting as governor following the intervention of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been sworn in as the substantive governor of the state.

The swearing-in ceremony of the new Ondo Governor was performed by the State Chief Judge.

Aiyedatiwa’s swearing-in followed the death of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in Germany on Wednesday, December 27, 2023 from complications arising from prostate cancer.

In his address shortly after being sworn-in, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa said it was with a heavy heart that he took over the reins of the governance of the state after the death of his late principal, Chief Akeredolu.

Aiyedatiwa further said that it was a devastating thing for the people of the state to lose their dear governor, adding that; “This is a monumental loss. It is a great loss to me as an individual”.
