The Acting Chairman of APC in Ondo State, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, has apologised for the delay in hanging the official portrait of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu at the party’s secretariat in Akure over four months after his inauguration.
In a statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of the party, Steve Otaloro, Adetimehin, said; “the error of omission should not be misconstrued that the party and the government were not on the same page.”
Adetimehin said members should not have the impression that the party and government were working at cross purposes, hence reason for the unveiling of the portrait of the governor, which served as the first assignment of the acting chairman.
At the event, the portrait of President Muhammed Buhari and that of the National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun were also unveiled.
It would be recalled that the crisis rocking the party in the state had paralysed its activities as a ruling party.
The crisis, which was yet to be resolved started shortly after the primary election that produced Akeredolu, late last year, as the governorship candidate of the party, which led to the alleged suspension of the party Chairman, Hon Isaac Kekemeke.
