Akeredolu’s deputy, Agboola Ajayi not qualified to be governor- Kudehinbu

 A former Head of Service in Ondo State, Mr Ajose Kudehinbu, has said that the incumbent Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, is not in anyway qualified to  govern the state.

He added that the Deputy Governor lacks what it takes to succeed his boss, Rotimi Akeredolu.

Series of reactions and counter-reactions have trailed Ajayi’s planned defection to the Peoples Democratic Party.

The move is to allow him  contest the forthcoming governorship election on the platform of the party.

 The former head of service in his reaction to Ajayi’s move, said the Deputy Governor was the least qualified to lead the state or aspire to become governor of the state.

His views  were contained in a comment on the Facebook page of a media aide to the deputy governor, Mr Allen Sowore.

He said,, “We do our beloved state great harm when we promote the political ambition of anyone, for no other reason than blood relationship or ethnicity. You may be the next victim of his atrocities.

“Let me make my stand unambiguously clear: your candidate (Ajayi) is the least qualified to aspire beyond the political level providence has honoured him with.

“However, those of us outside the immediate confines of government see and are able to identify his footprints, even in an uncharted environment that should attract his honest attention in the resolution of problems and conflicts, especially in his part of the state.”.

In response, Sowore said, “Ajose Kudehinbu, as an elder, I least expected you to raise an unsubstantiated hearsay about what the deputy governor allegedly said about you. It’s a rumour.

“I don’t actually expect you to support Agboola Ajayi for anything. Again, on account of age and perhaps achievements. It’s trite to say that age is respected, but achievement is revered.”.

Meanwhile, as the primary of the APC in Ondo State draws near, an aspirant and Nigeria Ambassador to Togo, Mr Sola Iji, has condemned the factionlisation of the party in the state.
