Ondo 2020: Deputy Governor dumps PDP
In less than 48 days after he joined the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Ondo Deputy Governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi, has resigned from the party.
Ajayi resigned his membership of the PDP to contest the governorship race under the Zenith Labour Party(ZLP).
He has been cleared by National Executive Committee of the ZLP to contest the election.
Ajayi said he resigned from the PDP due to call on him by a majority of the people of Ondo State to give hope to the hopeless, provide credible and purposeful leadership in the state.
Speaking through his Media Adviser, Allen Sowore, Ajayi asked his supporters to remain focused and committed, saying he would soon announce his next line of action.
He appreciated the National Leadership and members of the PDP for their warm reception and acceptance in the short period he rejoined the party.
Chairman of the PDP in Apoi Ward II of Ese-Odo Local Government Area, Festus Oboro acknowledged receipt of the resignation letter dated August 9, 2020.
Ajayi resigned from the APC and rejoined the PDP on June 21 2020.
His failure to secure the party’s governorship ticket made him shop for the ticket of the ZLP.
