Ondo: Resign if you have honour, Akeredolu tells deputy, Ajayi
Newly re-elected governor of Ondo State has advised deputy governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi, to resign from the post if he has honour.
Ajayi dumped the All Progressive Congress (APC) under which he was elected with Akeredolu and ran for the office of the governor under the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) in the just concluded election without resigning from his post.
Speaking to State House correspondents in Abuja after being presented to President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday following his victory, Akeredolu called on the deputy governor to vacate the post.
He said even if Ajayi does not resign, his days are numbered as a new administration will soon be sworn-in.
Akeredolu also said that if Ajayi is contrite, he is ready to receive him with open arms.
The Ondo governor also described his declaration of some prominent Ondo indigenes as his enemies for life as a political statement, saying that having won the election, he has no need to keep enemies.
