- The Ondo governor lamented that Ajayi, despite this fat salary, still betrayed him
- Akeredolu described the deputy governor as being impatient and greedy
The governor of Ondo, Rotimi Akeredolu, has claimed that his deputy, Agboola Ajayi is both impatient and greedy.
Governor Akeredolu who spoke on a radio programme in Akure, the state capital, on Thursday, October 1, lamented that he was betrayed by Ajayi despite giving him free hand to operate in the state, The Nation reports.
In fact, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governor revealed that he did everything to make sure his deputy was well paid and comfortable by allowing him to receive the sum of 13 million monthly as salary, which, according to him, is the highest in the history of the state and Nigeria generally.
“No deputy governor has collected what he was collecting in the history of the state. I gave him N13million monthly. His predecessors did not collect as much as that.
"No deputy governor collects as much as that in Nigeria. I gave him enough room to operate, yet he betrayed me.”
Meanwhile, Ajayi had declared that he would emerge victorious against Governor Akeredolu of the 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 would punish the PDP for breaching the zoning arrangement.
