Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has promised not to take part in any media war based on a statement allegedly issued by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan on the security challenges facing the country.
He said he would not react to any media statement on the issue especially when it concerns the South-West.
Akeredolu made this known through a statement released by his Special Assistant on New Media, Mr Olabode Olatunde.
He said, “At the risk of being repetitive, the Governor Akeredolu-led South-West Governors will not go into the arena of media conflict with crisis entrepreneurs and divisionists.”
This is just as governors and monarchs in the South-West region of Nigeria have converged in Ibadan, capital city of Oyo State on Saturday, to proffer solutions to the incessant herdsmen crisis in the region.
According to reports, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, and Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State were present at the meeting.
