Following the defection of Agboola Ajayi to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state, many aspirants in the party are reportedly not happy with the development.
According to The Nation, the aspirants are worried with what they described as the preferential treatment accorded him by the leadership of the party.
Ajayi was alleged to have single-handedly nominated the chairman and all the members of the committee to conduct the party’s governorship primary in the state.
He was also accused of paying for a private jet to convey the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) led by its chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, to receive him into the party (today).
Meanwhile, one of the aspirants was reported to have claimed that the PDP would be in tatters if Ajayi is allowed to have his way in the party.
In another development, Legit.ng had reported that Bolaji Salami, the commissioner of police in Ondo state, prevented Agboola Ajayi, the deputy governor, from leaving the government house with official vehicles.
According to reports, the deputy governor is trying to leave the government house with official vehicles and properties in preparation for his expected defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a trending video, the CP was heard to have said: “We are not saying you should not go out. Since you are defecting, even your letter was brought to me in my office this evening that you are doing it (decamping) on Monday, June 22.
“What government is saying is that you cannot go out with official vehicles. This is politics, I am not saying it is right. This is Government House. The governor is the one talking, give me few minutes, let me talk to my boss.”
In reaction, the deputy governor replied: “Are you a member of the PDP or APC? It is you stopping me now. What is your concern about my leaving from one place to another? Do you know how many hours I have spent here? I personally paid for these vehicles. You should not have put yourself in mess.
“I have tried all constitutional and acceptable means to prevent this crisis. You are being used by the governor to deprive me of my constitutional right. I am highly disappointed that a policeman of your calibre can be used like this.
“Let me tell you, you cannot repeat what happened in this state in 1983 because Ondo State people will resist you and your and your emperor with everything.”
