Ondo Deputy Governor Under Pressure to Resign or Risk Impeachment

Speculations have emerged that the Ondo Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, might be pressured to resign this week.

Mr. Ajayi, who was candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), lost his bid to govern the state after he emerged third in the October 10 governorship election.

He resigned from the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) in June, joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but lost the party’s ticket to Eyitayo Jegede before moving to the ZLP where he contested.

The pressure on Mr. Ajayi to resign, according to sources in the House of Assembly and ZLP, is to avoid unnecessary impeachment by the state.

Sources have speculated that Mr. Ajayi might turn in his letter of resignation to the Speaker of the Assembly before the end of this week.

It has been revealed that Mr. Ajayi’s friends including a northern governor, reached to advise him accordingly to resign.

A source confirmed that aggressive steps will be taken to ensure Ajayi is impeached if he fails to tender his resignation letter and that Mr. Ajayi’s allies in the Assembly were already plotting to sign the impeachment notice.
