Accirding to the statement, “On October 20th 2020, the Office of Ondo State Deputy Governor did raise an alarm about plans by Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN and his allies to forge resignation letter of the Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi on a prepared resignation letter.
“Again, the Office of Ondo State Deputy Governor has credible information about new plans by Mr Governor to remove his Deputy by all means and at any cost illegally.
“To this end, the Governor, on Monday, 23rd November, 2020, sacked the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Kola Olawoye SAN inelegantly for his stand against Illegality and iniquity.
“Today, (Tuesday, November 24, 2020), Mr Governor has clandestinely orchestrated the announcement of the removal of the Deputy Speaker of the State House Of Assembly, Rt Honourable Ogundeji Iroju without any due process.
“All these are premeditated efforts to circumvent the institutions of state and usurp the powers of both the legislative and judiciary arms of government to pave the way for the illegal removal of the Deputy Governor.
“The general public should be wary of these latest antics and desperation of the Governor to remove his Deputy through macabre plan to forge signatures of members of the State House of Assembly on the prepared impeachment notice.”
