The deputy Governor of Ondo state, Agboola Ajayi has decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), barely two months after decamping to the party from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The decision of the deputy governor is said to be hinged on his failure to secure the ticket to contest for the Governorship election on the platform of the PDP.
Agboola Ajayi was said to have submitted his resignation to the chairman of the PDP in Apoi ward II of Ese-Odo local government area on Sunday night.
