Barely few hours after Ondo state governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu sacked the aides to his Deputy Governor, Hon. Agboola Ajayi, the deputy has reappointed all the sacked aides, just as the plot to impeach him thickens.
The affected aides are: Olomu Bayo, Special Assistant, Special Duties, Olawale Abolade Mukaila, Special Assistant on Photography, Babatope Okeowo (Deputy Chief Press Secretary), Samuel Ogunmusi, Personal Assistant, (Deputy Governor), Omotunmise Tokunbo, Special Assistant to the wife of the Deputy Governor and Mrs Erifeyiwa Shola Akinnugba, Photography, wife of the Deputy Governor.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Babatope Okeowo, Agboola said, “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.
“We remain undaunted in the move to throw off the combined weight of those kneeling on the neck of Ondo State. Our state shall not be allowed to suffocate. At the appropriate time, the people of Ondo State shall decide the right person, who will serve as the arrowhead of the bid to save the state from the nepotistic clique kneeling on her neck.”
