Akeredolu Meets Buhari After Election Victory

...Asks Deputy Governor To Resign

Re-elected Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, on Tuesday visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, to celebrate his victory.

Upon his visit. he presented his certificate of return to the President.

While speaking to journalist over his visit, the governor called on his incumbent deputy, Agboola Ajayi, to resign.

Recall that Ajayi had defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) first to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and later to the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).

The governor said even if Ajayi refused to resign, his days are numbered since a new deputy would soon be inaugurated.

Akeredolu also said his earlier statement declaring some indigenes of the state as his enemies for life was a mere political statement, saying that having won the election, he has no reason to keep enemies.

He said, “God has given us victory, who am I to harbour enmity against anybody? it is not necessary. So, if he (Ajayi) comes back, if he has honour anyway, he should resign and leave as Deputy Governor if he has honour.

“But if he decides not to, if opportunities are there, I am sure the party will take a decision on him because he is no longer in our party, he has gone to another party.

“He has been in three parties within a month, wonderful man. From APC to PDP, from PDP to ZLP, he is a wonderful man.”

Those who accompanied the governor includes the state deputy governor-elect, Lucky Ayedatiwa; and the governors of Lagos, Kebbi, Ekiti and Jigawa States.
