- They alleged that the deputy governor is planning to cause trouble in the state
As division continues to affect the unity in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state ahead of the forthcoming governorship primary, some youths in the party have called on the national chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, to caution the deputy governor of the state, Hon Agboola Ajayi.
The group also called on the state commissioner of police, Salami Bolaji, to prevail on Ajayi not to create unrest in the state.
They alleged that Ajayi had recruited ex-militants, some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress and some illegal delegates to Akure for the purpose of participating in the PDP primary election, The Nation reports.
The youths disclosed this under the auspices of Democratic Reformation Force (DRF).
They also alleged that Ajayi has perfected plans to rig the primary election.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the World Bishops’ Council (WBC) in Africa, has advised Ajayi to resign.
The religious organisation said the Ondo deputy governor should make the move “to allow peace to reign in the state.”
In a statement sent to journalists on Tuesday, July 14, and signed by one Bishop Seun Adeoye, the group expressed dismay at the current political imbroglio in Ondo state.
“We advise him as a child of God to tow the path of honour by promptly resigning his deputy governorship position and pursue the path of peace,” the group said.
The political altercation between the Ondo state governor and his deputy has been attracting attention on social media.
A writer on Nairaland, wrote: "Ondo state and political drama is 5&6 since Baba Ajasin's time.
''From Mimiko betraying Baba Adefarati and Agagu to Ali Olanusi decamping to the opposition party and now this drama between Aketi and his deputy.
"Agboola should know better not to contest against his boss, at least the man gave him political relevance in the state and when Aketi finishes his second term, he can think of contesting with his boss's blessing.
"Aketi is okay for a second term, I like his government, in infrastructure and salary payment, also his Internally Generated Revenue and opening up the state to m*arijuana business and how pragmatic he is, though he’s not a politician like Mimiko."
