The Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi has denied news that he has resigned his appointment.
Some national newspapers had reported that the Ondo State Deputy Governor had resigned.
Ajayi stated that the news is false and a figment of the imagination of the writers.
The media aide to the Deputy Governor, Comrade Allen Sowore, in a statement made available to Western Post on Tuesday, said the Deputy Governor was elected together with Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN by the good people of Ondo State in 2016, stressing that the four years mandate given to both men will not end until 23rd February, 2021.
According to the statement, “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 ask 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”
