Ondo state governor, Olusegun Mimiko on Tuesday, February 7, met with the acting president Yemi Osinbajo behind closed doors in Abuja.
Mimiko answering questions from State House correspondents after the meeting, disclosed that he briefed Osinbajo on what his administration was doing to exit and invited him to inaugurate some projects in Ondo state.
Mimiko’s second 4-year tenure as governor of Ondo state will expire on February 24.
The governor said that the ongoing crisis in the State House of Assembly was not part of the issues discussed during the meeting.
The Ondo State House of Assembly had been engulfed in leadership crisis between factions leading to the sealing of the Assembly’s complex by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
However Mimiko told the State House correspondents that the crisis would soon be resolved following the intervention of stakeholders in the state.
Mimiko expressed the readiness of the “sitting speaker’’ of the assembly to step aside for peace to reign in the assembly.
Recall that angry residents of Ondo state reportedly attacked the out-going governor Olusegun Mimiko.
