Ondo Election: My deputy is of no importance – Gov Akeredolu


As the political tensions in Ondo state continue to soar, it is no longer rosy between incumbent governor Rotimi Akeredolu and his deputy Agboola Ajayi, ahead of the October 10 governorship election in the State.

It would be recalled that Ajayi had dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress APC after a fallout with the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, last month. He left for the People’s Democratic Party PDP.

But recently during the PDP’s governorshipprimary elections, Agboola Ajayi lost to Eyitayo Jegede.

Akeredolu while taking a swipe at his now estranged deputy said the deputy governor leaving the APC for the PDP was a good riddance to bad rubbish.

“We thought we could accommodate him in the APC, but since he returned to where he truly belongs, it is all well. I always wish people the best I can.

“What I know is that he is of no importance; he has no hold on any local government area, and I can assure you that in the election, I will defeat him in his local government area which he might never recover from. He is of no influence anywhere, and we picked him then because we felt we had someone from PDP coming to join us. We picked him to join us, but he felt and told people that he is a grassroots man,” he said.
