The deputy governor of Ondo state, Hon. Agboola Ajayi has debunked rumors in some sections of the media alleging his resignation from his position as the deputy governor of the state.

Ajayi, a former member of the All Progressive Congress had defected to the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) under which he contested the October 10 governorship election which he lost.

A statement by Ajayi’s Media Adviser, Allen Sowore in Akure debunked the claims that his principal was planning to resign this week.

Sowore in the statement said:

“The news that Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi is set to resign this week by some national newspapers is false and a figment of the imagination of the writers.

“The Deputy Governor was elected together with Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN 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.

He added that; “Therefore, he has no reason whatsoever to relinquish the people’s mandate, which of course is limited by term/time, democratically bestowed upon him.”
