Ondo Deputy Governor won’t Join ZLP – PDP Assures Members


The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State has described as a mere rumor the information that Agboola Ajayi, the incumbent Deputy Governor of the state, has concluded plans to defect from the PDP to join the Zenith Labour Party(ZLP).

Zadok Akintoye, Director of Media and Publicity of the party in a statement on Sunday, said Ajayi remained a member of the PDP, emphasizing that he  has not informed the party of his intention to leave and therefore remains a well valued and respected member of the party.

The statement read in part:”Please note that clarification on the allegation has been sought from the Deputy Governor and assurances given to the leadership of the party of his intention to stay in the PDP. We therefore implore all members of the party and the general public to disregard the information as H.E. has assured the party leaders and elders (on his honor) of not leaving.

“Our efforts at winning the next election remains ongoing and we are committed to removing the incumbent governor through a free and fair election.”
