Ondo deputy governor under pressure to resign
Indications have emerged that the Ondo Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, might be pressured to resign this week.
Ajayi, who was candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), lost his bid to govern the state after he emerged third in the October 10 governorship election.
He resigned from the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) in June, joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but lost the party’s ticket to Eyitayo Jegede before moving to the ZLP where he contested.
The pressure on Ajayi to resign, according to sources in the House of Assembly and ZLP, is to avoid unnecessary impeachment.
Some of the sources said Ajayi might turn in his letter of resignation to the Speaker of the Assembly before the end of this week.
It was gathered that top notch friends of Ajayi, including a northern governor, was reached to advise him accordingly to resign.
A source confirmed that aggressive steps will be taken to ensure Ajayi is impeached if he fails to tender his resignation letter.
It added that Ajayi’s allies in the Assembly were already plotting to sign the impeachment notice.
