Akeredolu sacks Deputy Governor’s media aide, CPS, others
Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has relieved Mr Allen Sowore, Special Assistant on New Media to the embattled Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, of his appointment with immediate effect.
This is contained in a statement issued on Tuesday in Akure by Mr Olusegun Ajiboye, chief press secretary to the governor and made available to newsmen.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ajayi had been at loggerheads with his boss, Akeredolu, for some time before he finally resigned from the All Progressives Congress and joined the People’s Democratic Party.
Ajayi, however, maintained that he remains the deputy governor of the state in spite of his departure from the APC.
The statement advised Sowore to submit all government’s property in his possession to the chief of staff to the governor.
Meanwhile, hours after sacking the Special Assistant on New Media to the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Allen Sowore, the Chief Press Secretary to the embattled Deputy Governor, Babatope Okeowo has also been sacked by the Governor, Akeredolu. Okeowo was sacked alongside five other aides of the Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi and his wife.
