Ondo deputy gov should consider resigning – PDP chieftain
The Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, has been advised to resign if he can no longer work amicably with his boss, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
Zonal Publicity Secretary (Southwest) of the PDP, Mr. Ayo Fadaka, gave the advice in an appearance on a Channels Television programme Sunrise Daily.
Ajayi, who recently defected from the APC to PDP, had vowed never to resign no matter the level of intimidation.
But Fadaka advised him to toe the path of honour by quietly quitting the stage but maintained that the PDP would not interfere in the matter.
He said, “Impeachment is expected to be initiated if it is considered that person to be impeached has committed high crimes against the system. But again, with the decamping of Agboola can it be construed to be high crime against the state?
“The constitution says that for every Governor that will contest, he should have a running mate and that’s why there is always a deputy governor to assist the Governor.
“The Governor picked Agboola Ajay; the PDP was not part of whatever they were doing when they decided to run with each other.
“And if they still feel comfortable running with each other, we do not want to have an input into it.
“Ordinary, it is up to Agboola Ajayi to do what I think is honorable by resigning himself if he feel he could no longer cooperate with the man who placed a level of trust in him to assist him in doing his job.”
