Ogbomosho Parapo, a Yoruba socio-cultural group in Gwagwalada-Abuja has condemned in strongest terms, a statement credited to Ondo state governor Rotimi Akeredolu mulling for tenure extension/elongation of President Buhari.

A statement issued by Mr Ekundayo Adamu on behalf of the group, which was made available to CAPITAL POST, described such statement at this crucial period of the nation’s life as unwarranted, inflammatory and unconstitutional, not known to the Nigerian Law.

According to the release, it appears Ondo governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, very senior lawyer at the Bar, is already consumed by his inordinate ambition to return to Alagbaka house in October, hence fanning and treading a dangerous trend that will negate an already reached agreement between the North and South.
