It is primitive for my deputy to look for my downfall – Akeredolu

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has debunked insinuations that his Deputy Governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi, left the APC with huge numbers of the party faithful.

He said it was only Agboola thaf left the APC while others remained within the party.

Akeredolu spoke in a live programme monitored in Akure.

He said his Deputy was pushed by ambition, adding that he was yet to understand why Agboola failed to find peace in the office.

He said, ‘The Deputy Governor is the only person that left the party. He left with no other person. The SSG that resigned is still at the party. All the aspirants that ran with me at the primaries are together with me. I know that God’s hand is in this project.

“Issue of Deputy Governor happens all the time. It is not a new phenomenon. Only people who are guided by God’s principle can have a settled mind. Ambition will run people mad. It is primitive to look for the downfall of your principal.

On the alleged violence threat by an APC chieftain, Isaacs Kekemeke, Akeredolu said Kekemeke was a man of peace and didn’t mean what he said.
