Ondo 2020: PDP Leaders Reveals How Ondo Deputy Governor Agboola Ajayi Manipulated Delegates AdHoc List
The main opposition party in Ondo state has been plugged into a fresh crisis as some political gladiators in the party called for the disqualification of the state deputy governor from the scheduled primary election in the state.
Naija News Understands that some members of the Party on Monday thronged the party’s secretariat in Alagbaka, Akure, the state capital accusing the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi who defected to the PDP recently from APC of alleged inserting of fictitious names into the delegates’ list.
The protesters were armed with placards at the gate of the secretariat bearing various inscription such as, “Secondus, let the will of the masses prevail”, “Chinda’s doctored delegates list will not stand”, “Don’t set Ondo ablaze, respect masses opinion,” “Don’t cause trouble in Ondo State”, “Don’t sell our rights” among others.
The protesters also accused the caretaker chairman of the party in the state, Clement Faboyede of his involvement in the alleged manipulation.
Reacting to the allegation, Faboyede insisted that he knows nothing about it as he advised the aggrieved aspirants to put up a written petition which would be forwarded to the national leadership of the party.
Faboyede said “The leadership of the party wishes to assure all aspirants that the processes for ensuring free, fair contest are still in place and would not be subverted.
“The list of valid delegates would be made available to all the aspirants after it has been duly compiled. We appeal for calm as the matter as referenced above remains unsubstantiated.”
