Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi has described the news in some national dailies that he is set to resign this week as false.
He said the story is a figment of the imagination of the writers.
The Deputy Govenor in a statement by his Media Adviser, Comrade Allen Sowore said the news of his impending resignation is being sponsored by the governor through the propaganda machinery and machinations of Ondo State Ministry of Information.
He further noted that the news is a subterfuge in preparation for a macabre plan to put the deputy governor’s forged signature on a prepared resignation letter.
The statement added, “The Deputy Governor was elected together with Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN by the good people of Ondo State in 2016. That four years mandate given to both men will not end until 23rd February, 2021.
“The general public should be wary of these latest antics and desperation of the Governor to remove his Deputy by all means and at any cost illegally.
“The people of Ondo State, who voted for Agboola Ajayi as Deputy Governor in 2016 have not ask him to resign or quit the government.
“Therefore, he has no reason whatsoever to relinquish the people’s mandate, which of course is limited by term/time, democratically bestowed upon him”.
