Ondo 2020: How Former SSG, Abegunde Reunited With Akeredolu

By Tunde Olorungbotemi

Former Secretary to the Ondo State Government (SSG) Hon. Ifedayo Abegunde who resigned from the Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu administration has returned to the Governor.

Recalled VOICE AIR MEDIA reported that Abegunde resigned his appointment in June and declared his support for one of the governorship aspirants, Segun Abraham who participated in the July 20 APC governorship primary election and lost to Akeredolu.

The former SSG later switched support for another governorship aspirant, Olayide Adelami after Abraham withdrew from the primary election race and backed Akeredolu.

It appears the crisis is now over as Abegunde was in the government house on Sunday to team up with his boss.

Abegunde, on Sunday evening, met with Governor Akeredolu at the Government House, Alagbaka, Akure and took pictures with the four plus four fingers after the meeting.

The reconciliation was made possible by a group of politicians from Owo.

Abegunde had accused Akeredolu of giving all the contracts to the people from the south East shortly after resigning.

 Sources at the meeting hinted that Abegunde who met with the Governor with the former commissioner for special duties, Femi Adekanbi, has settled his differences with the Governor.


The source said, ”Yes, Abena (Abegunde) was with the Governor this evening. They have settled their differences. From now on, he will be working with other APC faithful to ensure the victory of the APC and Akeredolu in the forthcoming election”
