Ondo State Deputy Governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi, has resigned his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The chairman of the PDP in Apoi Ward II of Ese-Odo Local Government Area, Festus Oboro, has reportedly acknowledged the receipt of the resignation letter on 9th of August, 2020.
A statement by his Media Adviser, Allen Sowore, in Akure said that Ajayi decision to resign was as a result of the call on him by a majority of the good people of Ondo State to give hope to the hopeless, provide credible and purposeful leadership in our dear State.
The deputy governor has, therefore, reassured his teaming supporters to remain focused and committed as he will be announcing his next line of action shortly.
Report says Ajayi will tomorrow defect to the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP, to contest for the governorship election.
The party adopted him after it replaced his name with that of its candidate, Rotimi Benjamin who was elected during the party’s primary early this month.
Recall Ajayi contested in the PDP governorship primary after resigning from the APC but eventually lost to Eyitayo Jegede.
