The Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Hon Agboola Ajayi has denies the rumors that he plans to dump the APC and contest 2020 guber poll against his Boss Oluwa rotimi Akeredolu
The denial followed a sponsored story that he wanted to dump the All Progressives Congress(APC) for the rival People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in order to contest the next year’s governorship election.
The Deputy Governor said his is unperturbed by this sponsored story and the one’s before it as these are the handiwork of attention and job seekers.
This was contained in a press statement issued and signed by Mr Babatope Okeowo the Deputy Chief Press secretary and made available to newsmen in Akure on Sunday.
According to the statement the rumors is a blatant falsehood as Hon Agboola Ajayi remains a bonafide member of the APC and has no plan to dump the party for any rival political party.
“There is no place where the Deputy Governor has met with stalwarts of the PDP not to talk of dividing their party.”
The Deputy Governor also uses the medium to apologise to Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State whose name was dragged into the murky water of Ondo State politics as being the sponsor of alleged plan of Hon Agboola Ajayi to contest on the PDP’s platform in Ondo State.
Hon. Agboola Ajayi also remains as the Deputy Governor and loyal to his boss, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN. He was chosen as the Deputy Governor at the benevolent of his boss, Governor Akeredolu.
We want to say that we know that the plan of the sponsors of the story is to cause serious rift between Governor Akeredolu and his Deputy for their selfish reasons.
It must be noted that the Hon Agboola Ajayi is a seasoned politician who knows the limitation of his office as the Deputy Governor. He is not ready in anyway to rock the boat of progress of this administration.
This is another grand plan by the busy bodies and professional blackmailers to create division within the ranks of the ruling APC in Ondo State in order to create advantage which does not exist anywhere.
Let us say for the umpteenth time that Hon Agboola Ajayi has no problem with his boss as the governor who was elected as the governor of Ondo State and he is discharging that responsibilities to the best of his ability.
The statement advised the busy bodies and professional blackmailers to find another job to do.and that the media should also not give space to all these noise makers.
The statement stated further that the seat of the Deputy Governor is an exalted seat, and let those who are interested in becoming the Deputy in the next dispensation wait till when Arakunrin Akeredolu is ready to pick who will run with him in the next election for the further development of Ondo State.
These people must know that Hon Agboola Ajayi is not a desperate politician. It is God that gives position at his appointed time.
