- Agboola Ajayi has declared that he would defeat Governor Akeredolu
- The deputy governor accused Akeredolu of not performing for the people of Ondo state
- Going further, he alleged that Akeredolu personalised government in the state
As the governorship election in Ondo state draws near, candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), Agboola Ajayi, has declared that he would emerge victorious against Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to him, APC failed woefully in the state and as a result, does not deserve a second term in office.
Going further, he claimed that the PDP had no structure to win the election in Ondo state.
Ajayi who is also the deputy governor said this while receiving former PDP members in Okitipupa local government.
The PDP members were led by a former governorship aspirant, Banji Okunomo and an ex-chairman of the local government, Solomon Bitire.
Ajayi also said voters will punish the PDP for breaching the zoning arrangement.
Going further, he alleged that Akeredolu in the last three and a half years personalised government.
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that Okunomo, governorship aspirant of the PDP, resigned his membership of the party in what climaxed the political grievances that trailed the primary election in Ondo state.
Okunomo dumped the party on Monday, September 7, and pitched his tents with the ZLP in Okitipupa local government.
The former PDP chieftain contested for the opposition party's guber ticket but lost to Eyitayo Jegede (SAN).
Another person who officially resigned from the PDP is a former attorney-general of the state, Remi Olatubora.
Barely a month to the Ondo gubernatorial election, political alignments are beginning to unfold among politicians across parties in the state.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu hit hard at his predecessor in office, Olusegun Mimiko, over the incoming governorship election in the state.
The governor also berated the embattled state deputy governor and candidate of the ZLP for the election.
Legit.ng gathered that Akeredolu, who spoke in a television interview said some people were never qualified to be Ondo governor.
