Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, on Tuesday asked the deputy governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi to resign.
Ajayi dumped the All Progressive Congress (APC) under which he was elected with Akeredolu in 2016 and ran for the office of the governor under the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) in last Saturday’s election without resigning from his position.
Speaking with State House correspondents in Abuja after presenting his Certificate of Return to President Muhammadu Buhari, Akeredolu called on Ajayi to resign if he still has any honour in him.
The governor said even if Ajayi refused to resign, his days are numbered since a new deputy would soon be inaugurated.
Akeredolu further stated that if Ajayi is remorseful, he is ready to receive him with open arms.
He added that his earlier statement declaring some indigenes of the state as his enemies for life was a mere political statement, saying that having won the election, he has no reason to keep enemies.
Akeredolu was accompanied by the state deputy governor-elect, Lucky Ayedatiwa; and the governors of Lagos, Kebbi, Ekiti and Jigawa States.
