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).
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.”
