The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 presidential election, Omoyele Sowore has urged the Ondo House of Assembly to invoke the doctrine of necessity against the governor of the state, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu,
All Nigeria Latest News reports that the activists asserted that Governor Akeredolu did not sign or write any letter transmitting power to Lucky Aiyedatiwa, his deputy.
During a town hall meeting in Akure, the state capital, on Saturday, Sowore challenged the state House of Assembly to present the letter “purportedly” written by the governor for medical leave to the public.
He argued that since Akeredolu is incapable of writing a letter to resign or hand over power to his deputy, he should be relieved of his position.
“It is too late for Akeredolu to resign. He is incapacitated. Let him go home and take care of himself,” he said.
“I’m no longer demanding his resignation because it is clear that he is incapable of even resigning.
“We are not satisfied with the way and manner he handled the power. We want the proper invocation of the doctrine of necessity so that Akeredolu can go home and take care of himself.”
