Ex-Ondo Deputy Governor agrees to return official vehicles in his possession

ONDO- Ex- Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi has agreed to return official vehicles in his possession two months after leaving office.

Recall that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu through his Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties and Strategy, Dr Doyin Odebowale had threatened to embarrass the former deputy governor if he failed to return the four official vehicles in his possession after leaving office.

The Governor also vowed to press charges against Ajayi and other former political appointees who failed to return government properties in their possession.

However, the former deputy governor in his reaction through his media aide, Allen Sowore said that he is in possession of only two official vehicles and not four, adding that the two vehicles with him are his statutory benefits.

It was, however, gathered that Ajayi has decided to return the vehicles following an ultimatum of 48 hours given by the state police command.

Ajayi in a statement in Akure by his Media aide, entitled: ”Much Ado About Nothing: The Ondo State Government Must Get Their House In Order”, agreed to return the vehicles to stop harassment by “members of the inner circle of the Governor”

Ajayi statement reads: “Recall that in my farewell message to the good people of Ondo State, on 24th February 2021, I wished Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN and his Deputy, Lucky Ayedatiwa success in their administration.

” I stand by that! As a citizen of the state, it is in my interest and in the interest of all of us that this current administration demonstrates good governance, transparent policy-making and effective change.

“Unfortunately members of the inner circle of the Governor have decided to prioritise their time to harass me on a number of issues, most especially with regards to the return of vehicles. I had hoped these petty interactions would have ceased after the recent inauguration.

“To be clear – if the return of these two vehicles will make the administration focus more on the avalanche of pressing needs, challenges and predicaments facing the state most especially insecurity, the absence of governance and unpaid salaries across the entirety of the Ondo public sector – then I’m ready to make the sacrifice and return the two vehicles which they so desperately need.”
