Ondo State Deputy Governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi

The Ondo State Deputy Governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi on Tuesday denied a media report that he was planning to resign from the Rotimi Akeredolu-led administration.

Ajayi, who came third in the just concluded governorship election in the state, said some newspapers reported that he has been planning to tender his resignation letter this week but he described the report as falsehood and a figment of the imagination of the writers.

In a statement issued by his media adviser, Mr Allen Sowore, the deputy governor, alleged that the report of his planned resignation was sponsored by the governor and his aides. The statement was titled ‘Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi will not resign’.

The statement read, ” The deputy governor was elected together with Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, by the good people of Ondo State in 2016. That four years mandate given to both men will not end until 23rd February, 2021.

“The news of his impending resignation is being sponsored by the governor through the propaganda machinery and machinations of Ondo State Ministry of Information as a subterfuge in preparation for a macabre plan to put the deputy governor’s forged signature on a prepared resignation letter.

“The general public should be wary of these latest antics and desperation of the Governor to remove his Deputy by all means and at any cost illegally.

“The people of Ondo State, who voted for Agboola Ajayi as Deputy Governor in 2016 have not asked him to resign or quit the government. Therefore, he has no reason whatsoever to relinquish the people’s mandate, which of course is limited by term/time, democratically bestowed upon him.

However, the state Commissioner for Information Mr Donald Ojogo, said the governor knew nothing about the alleged newspaper publication of Ajayi’s planned resignation.

Ojogo said, ” Ordinarily, it should be the height of insensitivity to dissipate energy on whatever the ZLP candidate may have said in respect of the above subject matter.
