The governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has been facing difficulties in finding a First Lady since he was sworn into office. Reports indicate that he is considering one woman among three contenders, but no one seems willing to take on the role due to his history of mistreating women.
Aiyedatiwa’s wife, Seun, is said to have left him due to his abusive behavior. Sources claim that he would frequently beat her, leaving her in fear for her life. She was forced to flee and hide elsewhere to escape his violence.
In an attempt to reconcile with his wife, Aiyedatiwa is reportedly offering her a sum of 200 million naira. However, Seun has reportedly refused the offer, indicating her unwillingness to return to a relationship marked by abuse.
The governor’s history of violence against women has drawn widespread criticism. A group of Ondo women recently wrote to human rights organizations, expressing their concern over Aiyedatiwa’s behavior and questioning his suitability for leadership.
Given the allegations against him, it is understandable why women would be hesitant to associate themselves with Aiyedatiwa. His actions have raised serious doubts about his character and fitness for public office. Until he addresses these concerns and demonstrates a genuine commitment to changing his behavior, it is unlikely that he will find a woman willing to become his First Lady.
