Ajayi’s spokesperson, Babatope Okeowo, said the claims that his principal has defected to the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) are untrue.
According to Okeowo, the deputy governor was under intense pressure from his supporters to contest for the election but is yet to take a decision on his next political move.
The spokesperson said Ajayi would likely make a declaration about his next political move soon.
Meanwhile, the PDP has appealed to the deputy governor of Ondo state Hon Agboola Ajayi not to defect to the Zenith Labour Party.
Also, there is disquiet in the Party over the choice of who will be the deputy of the candidate of the party Eyitayo Jegede, Vanguard reported.
”We are seriously appealing to the deputy governor not to dump the party at this crucial time and at the same time, the party’s candidate is battling with leaders of his choice of deputy,” a party leader was quoted to have said.
In another news report, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has opened up on why the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will emerge victorious at the Ondo state governorship election.
In a report by The Nation, the former deputy Senate president explained that one of the reasons PDP will defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) is because they have resolved their differences especially over the protest that followed the alleged three-man adhoc delegates list.
“The issue of the three-man delegates' election has even resolved. There were some complaints and I am happy those complaints have been resolved. The July 22nd date for the PDP primaries in Ondo is still sacrosanct" he said.
The Enugu West representative spoke in Akure after monitoring the election of national delegates from 18 local government areas of the state.
