- The feud between Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and his deputy Agboola Ajayi has worsened
- The Ondo governor has taken a swipe at Agboola over his "illogical" impeachment claims
- Akerodolu said Agboola is being hunted by the nemesis of his lies as both prepare to slug it out against each other in September
For Agboola Ajayi and his estranged boss Rotimi Akeredolu, the battle is not yet over after the governor came hard on his deputy amid clashes of political interests that have run a train between the two former brothers.
Legit.ng recalls that after irreconcilable differences, Agboola dumped the All Progressive Congress (APC) and pitched his arms with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in an effort to solidify his ambition.
With less than four months to the guber election in Ondo state, Governor Akeredolu has laid blames on his deputy, saying he is being hunted by the nemesis of his lies.
It would be recalled Agboola had alleged plots to impeach him by the governor, claiming that Akeredolu gave 19 out of the 23 lawmakers in the state N10 million to offer their signature for his removal.
Speaking through his media aide, Allen Sowore, Agboola also claimed that there was an attempt by the governor to impeach the speaker of Ondo state House of Assembly, Bamidele Oloyeloogun.
But in his reaction, Governor Akeredolu described Agboola's claims as illogical and lies flying in the face of facts.
“It is, perhaps, illogical that the Governor with ‘minority’ in the Assembly will be inviting the Deputy Governor’s ‘majority’ for what they feel appropriate for their imaginary thoughts," part of the statement issued by the governor read.
Akeredolu said he is not deterred by the campaign of lies and propaganda embarked upon by Agboola and his loyalists.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the commissioner of police in Ondo, Salami Amidu Bolaji, has reacted to the allegation connected to the posting and withdrawal of officers attached to the state's deputy governor.
In reaction to rumours making the rounds that he has a hand in the withdrawal of Agboola's security details, Bolaji made it clear that only the Inspector-General of Police has the right to make such a decision.
