Akeredolu Is A Despirate and Drowning Governor -Ajayi Attacks Akeredolu
The embattled Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi, has raised an alarm over plans by the lawmakers to illegally sack him on the orders of the governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.
In a statement by his Media Aide, Babatope Okeowo, Ajayi made available to Naija News, Ajayi said he has not committed any offence by decamping from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Ajayi also berated the illegal move by his boss Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu to impeach him through illegal and unconstitutional means.
Speaking further Agboola Ajayi revealed that the illegal impeachment move would be carried out through financial inducement of members of the Ondo State House of Assembly to the tune of ten million naira each.
“We wish to state that the deputy governor is a tested politician of note, who is not unprepared for this type of kangaroo and infamous move from the desperate and drowning governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu and his group.
Ajayi also stated that dumping the All Progressive Congress and join the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Agboola Ajayi has not committed any impeachable offence.
“By joining People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Agboola Ajayi has not committed any impeachable offence. He has only exercised his constitutional right of freedom of association. Section 40 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) provides as follows:
“Every person shall be entitled to assemble freely and associate with other persons, and in particular, he may form or belong to any political party, trade union or any association for the protection of his interests.”
For the avoidance of doubt, we state unequivocally that the Governor and his allies do not have and cannot muster the requisite majority in the House of Assembly for the removal of the Deputy Governor under the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 in any free, fair and transparent process.
