Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has described the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) has a good retirement abode/home for people who are ready to end their political careers.
Akeredolu said this while reacting to the latest defection of his deputy, Mr Agboola Ajayi from the Peoples Democratic Party to ZLP.
Ajayi had on Monday announced his defection from the PDP to ZLP, having lost to Mr Eyitayo Jegede in the governorship primary election of the PDP.
Ajayi had earlier left the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the PDP in order to contest the governorship election, which is also being contested for by his boss, Governor Akeredolu.
Commenting on the latest defection of his deputy, Akeredolu said “his new political party is like a car without engine meant for people who are ready to end their political careers.”
He said the owners of the party are undertakers who are only interested in carrying dead bodies.
The Governor said “ZLP is nothing but an undertaker carrying an empty load to an undertaker in the market”.
