PDP says Ondo deputy governor, Ajayi, still with it


The Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Sunday, debunked the rumour doing the round that the Deputy Governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi, had left the party.

The Publicity Secretary of the party, Zadok Akintoye, in a statement said Ajayi was still a bona fide member of the party, stresding that he had yet to inform the party of his decision, if any, to quit the party.

Ajayi decamped from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in June to join the PDP, but refused to quit office as deputy governor.

He contested in the PDP primary election and finished as a first runner-up behind Eyitayo Jegede.

After he met with Governor Olusegun Mimiko last week, there were speculations thatvAjayi would defect to the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).

“Please note that clarification on the allegation has been sought from the Deputy Governor. He has given assurances given to the leadership of the party of his intention to stay in the PDP,” the Publicity Secretary said.
