Ondo Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi Defects From PDP
Ondo State deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi, who recently left APC to join PDP has also abandon his membership of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
Agboola defected from the APC to the PDP in June this year due to his running battle with his principal and governor of the state, Rotimi Akeredolu. He contested for the PDP governorship ticket but lost to Eyitayo Jegede.
His resignation has been confirmed in a statement released by his Special Assistant on Media, Allen Sowore. In the letter, he appreciated the national leadership and members of the party for their warm reception and acceptance in the short period he rejoined the party.
The statement said the decision is as a result of the people calling on him to aspire to govern the State. The Chairman of the PDP in Apoi Ward II of Ese-Odo Local Government Area, Festus Oboro acknowledged receipt of the resignation letter on the 9th of August, 2020.
However, rumor has it that he officially defect to the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP this week in his bid to fly the party’s flag in the October 10 Governorship election of the state. The leader of ZLP in the State is former Governor Olusegun Mimiko.
